200 black money companies in Bengal; why is Mamata's TMC silent: JDU

Taking a dig at West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, the Janata Dal (United) on 1 December highlighted the Saradha chit-fund scam and alleged that black money lies in the Trinamool Congress (TMC) bastion.

JD (U) leader Harivansh Narayan Singh lashed out at Mamata over recent outburst against Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government's decision to demonetise high-value currency notes.

"More than 200 companies are involved in the generation of black money and the headquarters of such companies are in Bengal," Singh told ANI outside the Parliament here.

"The headquarters of these companies, located in Bihar, Odisha, Jharkhand and Assam, are in Bengal and it is these companies that exploit the common man," he added.

Seeking a reply from the TMC supremo, the JD (U) leader said that the former is answerable for all the scams happening in West Bengal.

Meanwhile, Singh also made it clear that the JD (U) was in tune with the government's demonetisation move.

He, however, urged the ruling dispensation at the Centre to make it more easy and convenient for the common people.
