ED summons to Jahan: TMC terms it 'vindictive'; BJP says allegations baseless

06:23 PM Sep 05, 2023 | PTI |

The TMC has criticised the Enforcement Directorate’s summons to party MP and actor Nussrat Jahan for questioning in a case related to alleged fraud against senior citizens, calling it a “vindictive” move to tarnish the party’s image before the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, while the BJP dismissed it as baseless and questioned the TMC’s “panic reaction”.


“This is vendetta politics by the BJP ahead of the Lok Sabha polls. They are using everything they can to accuse us and other opposition parties. This summons is just another attempt to tarnish our image before elections,” TMC leader and State Parliamentary Affairs Minister Sovandeb Chattopadhyay said.

While talking to reporters, Jahan said she “would cooperate with the probe”.
