Leader in Marxist-ruled Tripura who lay on a bed of cash withdrawn from his own bank account to fulfill a long cherished dream, is in deep trouble with his party.
Jogendranagar committee member of the CPI(M) in Agartala, Samar Acharjee, a contractor by profession, was shown lying on bundles of currency notes on television footage.
Acharjee was heard in the footage saying "I have withdrawn 20 lakhs from my bank account and fulfilled my long cherished dream of sleeping on a bed of money." But more damagingly, the CPI(M) leader said in the telecast last Thursday "I am not a hypocrite like other party members who depict themselves as proletariat, yet have a huge amount of money."
CPI(M) state secretary Bijan Dhar told PTI on Saturday that the, "preliminary investigation by the party shows that Mr Acharjee himself took the footage on his own mobile phone which was leaked to a television channel by his friend."Mr Dhar said, the Agartala sadar divisional committee of the party has completed investigation and the matter would be discussed at a meeting which would suggest action against Mr Acharjee. He said, "We do not support this kind of immoral work.
It seems the highest possible penal measures will be initiated against him."
