Senior TMC leaders to fly to Odisha to meet Sudip on Sunday

Kolkata: To show solidarity with party MP Sudip Bandyopadhyay, arrested by the CBI in connection with the Rose Valley chit fund scam, top TMC leaders like Partha Chatterjee and state President Subrata Bakshi will travel to Bhubaneswar this Sunday to meet the incarcerated leader.

Bandyopadhyay was taken to Bhubaneswar soon after he was arrested by the CBI after questioning at its office here.

“This is to show solidarity with Sudip (da). Partha Chatterjee and Subrata Bakshi will be travelling to Bhubaneswar this Sunday to meet him there,” a top party source said.

Asked whether the duo will meet another party leader Tapas Paul, also in CBI custody in Bhubaneswar, the source said, “That is yet to be decided. But any decision whether to meet Paul will be taken there.”

Meanwhile, the TMC source rubbished reports in a section of the media about questions asked by the CBI to Bandyopadhyay.

“Reports in the media on the questions asked by the CBI to Sudip (da) are wrong. He was not asked a single question.

We have confirmed this,” the source said.
