Kolkata: Suspended Trinamool Congress MP Kunal Ghosh alleged that West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee was the "biggest beneficiary" in the Saradha ponzi scheme scam and termed her a "coward".
"Mamata is the biggest beneficiary. She is holding party workers' meetings to save herself," Ghosh charged.
"She is a coward. She should be made to sit in front of me and questioned".
Kunal is an accused in the multi-crore Saradha scam case and was arrested in November 2013 by Bidhannagar Police.
Meanwhile, Mamata threatened to take her fight against BJP to Delhi, saying she would politically retaliate against her party's name being dragged into the Saradha scam.
She also attacked the BJP on the issue of bringing back black money to the country, threatening to tear off its 'mask'.
"We have tolerated enough and are forced to take to the streets. Lies are being spread about us. But Bengal's soil is so strong that if a sapling is sowed here, the tree will grow in Delhi," Banerjee said.
"I generally don't hold meetings blocking roads, but we had to do this one and if necessary, we will do it again and will do it in Delhi also," Banerjee said.
Slamming BJP on the issue of bringing back black money, she asked, "Where is the black money? Bring back the black money or else we will make you sit on black chairs and tear off your masks," Banerjee said.
She also claimed that "The BJP is spending thousands of crores on election campaigns. How did they get it?" she asked. "Why are you trying to taint the whole party or the government for the reason of one or two outsiders?" the TMC supremo asked the BJP leadership.
Without naming PM Modi, Banerjee said, "Six months in power, most of which are spent in foreign land, has he forgotten the country? Country is in selfies, and he is in foreign countries to sell off the country."
"100 per cent of railways, insurance, retail market, and even humans, pension and defence are being sold off," she alleged.
"He will get Nobel prize for selling off the country, but to satisfy whom I don't understand," she said.
Reiterating her allegation against Modi with regard to the Gujarat riots, Banerjee said, "you have taken a lot of blood in Gujarat, but spare Bengal. You have done a lot of riots, but we don't want riots here, we want to live in peace."
"Whenever elections come, the Bangladesh issue comes up," Banerjee said, adding, "whose issue is Bangladeshi infiltrators? Central government, it is your issue."
Referring to Burdwan blast, Banerjee said, "Whenever elections come, the Bangladeshi issue crops up. Bangladesh is our neighbour, brothers. A terrorist is a terrorist, he has no religion, colour, creed or country.
"Who has arrested the biggest terrorist (Burdwan blast case)? It was our state police," Banerjee, who also holds the Home (police) portfolio, reminded the gathering.
