Reacting sharply to the CBI issuing summons to two TMC MPs in connection with the alleged Rose Valley chit fund scam, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday alleged that the Narendra Modi government at the Centre was resorting to “politics of vendetta”, but asserted that her party could not be stopped in this manner.

“This is politics of vendetta. Trinamool Congress cannot be stopped in this way,” the TMC chief said.

TMC parliamentary party leader in Lok Sabha Sudip Bandopadhyay and party MP Tapas Pal have been asked to appear at the CBI office on December 30.

Banerjee had stated in Delhi yesterday that the country was witnessing a “super emergency” under Modi’s rule without its formal declaration.

All sections of the society are being frightened by “Gabbar is coming, Gabbar is coming”, she had said and added that the country could not be run through such threats.

She had also accused the prime minister of taking away the people’s rights.

On demonetisation, Banerjee said, “Let us wait for two more days and then, the 50 days would be over. We will decide accordingly.”
