Kolkata, Sep 10 (SocialNews.XYZ) The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has summoned Trinamool Congress’s national General Secretary Abhishek Banerjee on September 13 in connection with the multi- crore cash-for-school job case in West Bengal.
Incidentally, the summons is for a day when the first meeting of the opposition INDIA bloc's Coordination Committee, of which Banerjee is a member, is supposed to be held at New Delhi.
The ED summons was revealed by Banerjee himself on Sunday evening through a post on X (formerly Twitter) where he also indirectly attacked the Prime Minister Narendra Modi without naming him.
:FIRST meet of INDIA’s coordination comm is on 13th Sept in Delhi, where I'm a member. But, @dir_ed conveniently served me a notice just now to appear before them on the VERY SAME DAY! One can't help but marvel at the TIMIDITY & VACUOSNESS of the 56-inch chest model. #FearofINDIA," he posted.
Incidentally, ED’s summons come just a day before the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), which is running a parallel investigation in the cash-for-school job case, is supposed to present a crucial report at the Calcutta High Court on Monday.
Last week CBI counsel said at the court that the conspiracy in the case is equivalent to that of 9/11 attack on USA’s World Trade Centre on September 11, 2001.
Earlier, the ED had summoned him on June 13 for questioning in connection with the cash-for-school job case. However, he skipped that meeting.
On May 20, the CBI sleuths questioned Banerjee in connection with the school recruitment case for a marathon nine hours. However, Banerjee himself described the result of that marathon interrogation as a "big zero".
