“Mamata Banerjee is the main culprit. Partha Chatterjee used to be with the CM for almost 8 to 10 hours, the SSC scam happened only with the blessings of Mamata, and she is associated with Partha Chatterjee. Mamta Banerjee is now trying to save herself and her nephew. (She) will do a lot of gimmicks and we will have to see,” said BJP Bengal Vice President Saumitra Khan while speaking to ANI. (ANI)
