TMC’s Name Crops Up In Kolkata Flyover Tragedy


Kolkata: The opposition parties have alleged that TMC MP Subrata Bakshi’s nephew Rajat Bakshi was the subcontractor of the Posta flyover that has collapsed. Pradesh Congress President Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury and BJP leader Siddharth Nath Singh told reporters in a press conference that Rajat was involved in the construction process, where he tried to add more sand in the mixture of moulding; which led to this collapse.

TMC and its opposition parties have started exchanging barbs since Thursday morning, CM Mamata Banerjee tried to shrug off all responsibilities; she claimed that the Hyderabad based company is responsible. But, soon it appeared that Rajat was indeed involved with the construction.

Meanwhile, TMC MP of North Kolkata, Sudip Bandopadhyay said, “I told that there’s a problem in the sketch of the flyover, it should be remodeled; but it hasn’t been done!”

Sudip’s comment has further enhanced TMC’s embarrassment.
