Kolkata: The Trinamool Congress (TMC) on Saturday ordered an internal probe over the Narada sting featuring many of the TMC leaders including Mukul Roy, Madan Mitra and Firhad Hakim taking bribe.
The probe was believed to have been ordered to save the party’s face which was jolted after the footage appeared in media. The Narada sting has caused a great discomfiture to CM Mamata Banerjee also.
Addressing media on Saturday, education minister Partha Chatterjee said that an internal probe has been ordered on the sting issue. He however, claimed that this is a trick to malign Trinamool’s image.
He also said that the matter will be thoroughly investigated and the perpetrators will be punished. The opposition long been accusing TMC of hiding culprits have welcomed the step.
Narada News web portal had earlier released video tapes in which many TMC leaders are seen taking huge stash of cash promising undue favours.
