West Bengal CM Backs Robert Vadra

Vastavam web: West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee said on Tuesday that the summoning of Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s brother-in-law Robert Vadra, and his mother Maureen by the Enforcement Directorate for an investigation into an alleged land scam “is nothing but political vendetta ahead of the Lok Sabha polls.”

Mamata Banerjee was speaking to reporters at the Kolkata airport on her way to Delhi where she is scheduled to participate in a mega opposition rally convened by the Aam Aadmi Party or AAP today. “They (BJP) are doing it everywhere, this (questioning by ED) is nothing but political vendetta ahead of Lok Sabha polls. (Prime Minister) Narendra Modi is aware that he is not coming back to power after the elections,” Ms Banerjee claimed. Ms Banerjee had last week slammed the central government for the interrogation of Robert Vadra by the Enforcement Directorate.
