SSC scam: Abhishek Banerjee calls party meeting after clamour to oust arrested TMC minister Partha Chatterjee grows

Kolkata/IBNS: Trinamool Congress (TMC) national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee has called a meeting at 5 pm after clamour to oust arrested teacher recruitment scam accused West Bengal Minister Partha Chatterjee grew after a huge cash worth Rs. 50 crore was recovered from the heavyweight's aide Arpita Mukherjee's flats.

The day started with TMC spokesperson Kunal Ghosh demanding the removal of Chatterjee, who is a former Education Minister, present Commerce and Industry Minister and the ruling party's secretary general, in all forms.

Ghosh's demand was supported by another TMC spokesperson Debangshu Bhattacharya.

Later, Ghosh tweeted, "... Avishek Banerjee has convened party meeting today 5pm at TMC bhawan. I have been told to attend that meeting also..."

After Rs. 21 crore in Arpita's Tollygunge flat, the Enforcement Directorate probing the scam Wednesday recovered around Rs. 29 crore from the small-time Bengali actor's another flat located in Belgharia.

The recent incident has caught the ruling TMC, led by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, off-guard with the party jumping to distance itself from Chatterjee and the cash recovered from Arpita's flat.
