Won’t induct anybody involved in Saradha scam, says BJP National Secretary Siddharth Nath

NEW DELHI(PTI): Scotching rumours that BJP harboured plans to induct Trinamool Congress leaders who are allegedly involved in the Saradha scam, BJP National Secretary Siddharth Nath Singh on Friday said the party will not induct TMC leaders tainted in the ponzi scam under any circumstances.

“A vernacular daily is reporting that we are planning to induct TMC leaders involved in Saradha scam. I want to state clearly that in no circumstances we will induct any TMC leaders, who have been tainted in the scam. We will never open doors for Saradha-tainted leaders,” Singh said.

Singh, however, welcomed TMC General Secretary Mukul Roy’s appearance before CBI in connection with the Saradha scam investigation, as a welcome step.

“It is good that at last he appeared before CBI. It is a welcome step for the investigation. We hope that the probe ends soon and the culprits are punished and the most important is those who have lost their money should get back their cash,” Singh said.
