As more and more people are being grilled to probe the Saradha scam, the list of those involved in the same is getting bigger by the day. There are some who have already been arrested and then there are those who are yet to be arrested.

But with the investigations in the case, more and more fingers are being pointing towards TMC Supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.

As per reports, a few days back, former TMC MP Kunal Ghosh had said that the biggest beneficiary of the Saradha Group's media operations, which he ran, was Mamata Banerjee. He also sought that he should be taken into CBI custody and interrogated along with Sudipta Sen, and the West Bengal Chief Minister.

Just a day after the Central Bureau made its first arrest of the TMC leader, Kunal Ghosh, in the Saradha scam, the agency grilled another party leader and Rajya Sabha MP Srinjoy Bose.

All this is increasing more and more pressure on the TMC in the chit fund scam case in which even Mamata Banerjee has also come under the scanner.

Is this paving way for BJP's win in the state?

No matter who will come clean and who will get punished, eying the 2016 Assembly polls in West Bengal, BJP has got its trump card.

And even recently, at a two day brainstorming session, the Bengal BJP called for a do or die against the ruling Trinamool. Chalking out its plan for the its future course of action the party decided to strengthen party's base and present itself as a viable alternative option to the people of West Bengal.

Tumbling of skeletons from this scam's cupboard has clearly paved way for BJP to make it a win-win situation in the upcoming assembly polls.

Is it too early to consider it a win-win for BJP in 2016

With the Assembly elections in Bengal nearly two years away, it could be a wee bit early to say that BJP will gain power, because no one knows what has these two years have in store for the state.

But if things will continue the way they are today, then BJP's win in Didi's West Bengal will be inevitable as the State has witnessed enough of scams and has tasted the mis-governance of both TMC and CPM.

Where is Didi's 'Poribartan' now?

Didi said she will bring 'poriborton' in West Bengal, But has there been any change in the state so far which can be termed as an achievement for the State?

Targetting Bengal CM, even BJP President Amit Shah recently said, "Didi you sat on a fast for days in support of one or two thousands farmers who lost their land in Singur and Nandigram finally bringing about a Parivartan in Bengal. But why did you not sit on a fast or come down on the roads for the 17 lakh poor people who had lost their hard earned money in the Saradha scam."

The state government has yet not come up with any plan as to how will it bring relief to the victims of Saradha scam.

In the midst of 'who is accussed' controversy, what has been forgotten is the pain of those who invested their life's savings in Saradha's ponzi scheme. Their hard earned money cash is as good as lost.

By the time the inquiries are concluded in this scam, another such scam will emerge and the only one to be affected will be the common man who is facing the brunt at present also because of this scam.
