Malviya said that the SSC Scam protesters are now hurling slippers on Chief Minister Banerjee’s posters on the streets.
The ED has arrested Partha Chatterjee and his close aide Arpita Mukherjee in the SSC scam and recovered crores in cash, several kilograms of gold, and documents of many properties. Last month, Chatterjee was removed from the state cabinet and the party.
The BJP has intensified its attack on Mamata Banerjee after the arrest of Chatterjee.
Earlier, the BJP had claimed that the Trinamool Congress workers “involved in scams and other illegal activities are worried” after Mamata Banerjee “dumped” Partha Chatterjee.
Malviya had said, “After Mamata Banerjee dumped Partha, her close confidant, every criminal in the Trinamool, from minister to ordinary worker, who are involved in scams, rapes and murders, are worried. They acted on the assurance that Mamata would protect them but now they feel slighted. Law is supreme.”
