Kolkata, Sept 12: Odisha and Assam are the two other states where the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is probing the Saradha and other financial scams but it is only in West Bengal where the ruling party, the Trinamool Congress (TMC), has put up a full resistance against the central investigative agency.

TMC supporters led by State Law Minister Chandrima Bhattacharya have been protesting in front of the CBI office in Kolkata, saying the Centre was unfairly targetting their leaders through the investigative agency. The CBI was, however, unmoved and said it would carry on with its interrogations somewhere else, a report published in Bengali daily Anandabazaar Patrika said.

According to the same report, the scenario is completely different in Odisha and Assam where also two anti-BJP parties, namely, the Congress and BJD, are in power. Ministers and leaders of the ruling parties are also being interrogated by the CBI in these two states but neither of them has disrupted the CBI's action. In fact, they have even expressed surprise with the way the CBI has been facing resistance in West Bengal.

While a BJD ruler in Odisha said whatever is happening in West Bengal shouldn't have happened, the media advisor to Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi remarked that the TMC is perhaps feeling afraid for many of its leaders are allegedly having relations with Saradha.
