"A chief minister should not campaign against a central investigating agency. It is ridiculous for her to do so," state Congress president Pradip Bhattacharya said referring to a Banerjee post on a social networking site Wednesday.
"Please see what the Hon'ble Supreme Court has said - "CBI has become caged parrot speaking in master's voice". What do you think? Opinion please," Banerjee had posted on Facebook page.
Stating that the state government may reject a demand for a Central Bureau of Investigation probe, Bhattacharya said "it was unheard of a government campaigning against a central investigating agency".
"Trinamool Congress ministers including the chief minister are arguing against a CBI probe by stating irrational reasons only because of fear. They know a CBI probe will reveal information that might be dangerous for them," he said.
