Kolkata, Dec 23: Ebullient after the party's showing in Jharkhand, BJP national secretary Siddharth Nath Singh today said it would be the turn of West Bengal next and advised Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to resign 'rather than live in constant fear of losing power'.
"Neither am I an astrologer nor do I have control of CBI. But what can I do ? The acts of your (Banerjee's) party leaders are such that they have to go jail. It was your party MP Kunal Ghosh who spilled the beans. In 2015 it will be Bhag Mukul Bhag. In 2016 it will be Bhag Mamata Bhag(run)," he told a meeting here.
"TMC MPs provoke the PM in Parliament. I just want to say that why don't you (Banerjee) show guts and go to CBI office and say that you yourself have come to lift the veil on the scam which has defrauded 17 lakh poor investors," Singh said.
"Or else you will leave in constant fear. That is why I have said you (Banerjee) should resign as chief minister. If you live in constant fear it will affect your health too. After making a BJP chief minister in Jharkhand, BJP president Amit Shah is again coming on February 1, you will again shiver with fear," Singh said.
Singh mocked the Transport Minister Madan Mitra and TMC MP Srinjoy Bose, arrested by CBI in connection with the Saradha scam, for staying in hospital to evade interrogation by the investigating agency.
"Mitra, who holds the sports portfolio needs to be fit himself to fit the role. So too TMC youth leader Srinjoy Bose. But since the day CBI has tightened its noose, they have taken shelter in hospital in order to evade the central agency," he said.
