To show solidarity with Bandyopadhyay, top TMC leaders like Partha Chatterjee, general secretary Subrata Bakshi, Chandrima Bhattacharya and Manish Gupta today went to Bhubaneswar to meet the leader.
Stung by Bandyopadhyay’s arrest, a furious Mamata Banerjee accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of using central agencies like the CBI, Enforcement Directorate and Income-Tax department against his political rivals who were raising their voice against demonetisation.
