3 Jharkhand Parliament Leaders Detained As Cash Found In Their Car, -by Ecork

Kolkata:

Police in West Bengal’s Howrah district today seized a “huge amount of cash” from a car in which three MLAs from Jharkhand were traveling, leading to allegations of “horse-trading” politics. The three – Irfan Ansari, Rajesh Kachhap and Naman Bixal Kongari – have been detained for questioning about the source of the money, and note-reading machines will have to be used to determine the exact amount, police said.

Their car, a Toyota Fortuner SUV, has a panel that says ‘Jamtara MLA’, which it is Irfan Ansari. Mr. Kachhap is a representative from Khijri, Mr. Kongari from Kolebira. There is no response yet from them, but the Congress said that they were given money by the BJP to topple the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha-Congress coalition government. “It is in the nature of the BJP to try and stabilize any government that is not theirs,” Bandhu Tirkey, Jharkhand Congress Working President, told news agency ANI.

Jharkhand BJP leader Aditya Sahu, however, alleged that the money was proof of JMM-Congress corruption. “Since they came to power, corruption has been increasing. They are using public money for other purposes,” he told the news agency.

Political questions were shot from Bengal, too. In a tweet, the ruling Trinamool Congress referred to “murmurs of horse-trading and the possible silence of the Jharkhand government”. Chief Minister and Trinamool leader Mamata Banerjee has recently accused the BJP of trying to force a change of government in Jharkhand after the recent change in Maharashtra. BJP did not react seriously to this.

Some leaders from the Bengal government – recently sold through bundles of money recovered from an aide of arrested party leader Partha Chatterjee – also moved the Enforcement Directorate (ED), asking whether action will be taken against those who are not from Trinamool. . Minister Shashi Panja shared a video tweeted by a journalist and wrote, “ED, are you making a note or is the matter not bad enough?”

Trinamool has been saying that the BJP is targeting selection by central government agencies.

Regarding the seizure of money, the police said that the SUV was parked near Panchla village and money was found in the pockets. “We have definite information that large sums of money are being transported,” said Swati Bhangalia, Superintendent of Police of Howrah Rural, near Kolkata.

“We processed the details and we asked three representatives from Jharkhand for details and evidence about the money. Counting the amount and other legal procedures will follow,” he added.

There were two others in the car, including a driver, we heard.
