No clean chit to Trinamool, says BJP

As reported in The Hindu on Sunday, investigating agencies in Bangladesh and India are yet to find any evidence to connect any member of the ruling party in West Bengal with the blast in Bardhaman

Even as Union Minister of State for Personnel Jitendra Singh on Wednesday told the Lok Sabha in a written reply that: “The investigation has so far not revealed any such transaction where money was routed to Bangladesh to fund terrorist activities,” the BJP’s national secretary and in-charge of West Bengal, Siddharth Nath Singh said no clean chit had been given to the Trinamool Congress government in West Bengal.

In a statement, Mr. Singh alleged that the West Bengal government had been shying away from a CBI inquiry till the Supreme Court intervened and directed that the investigation be handed over to the agency.

According to Mr. Singh, the Minister on record said “no clean chit has been given to anyone.”

Union Minister for Environment Prakash Javadekar also told journalists outside Parliament that the probe was still on and the Trinamool should not prejudge findings.
