Many Trinamul Congress leaders would spend their days in jail during this Puja festivals, Mr Rahul Sinha, BJP’s national secretary said today. While speaking at a programme of the party in Suri of Birbhum district today, Mr Sinha said, “Force the Trinamul Congress leaders who have taken cut money from you to do sit-ups holding their ears publicly. Don’t gherao their residences because their family members will be disturbed.”

“Many Trinamul leaders will have to stay in jail during the Puja this time,” he added. “It’s the old tactics of BJP to influence Central agencies against Trinamul Congress,” said state urban development and municipal affairs minister Firhad Hakim while reacting to Mr Sinha’s statements. “Everybody is not Mukul Roy who joined BJP fearing the summons from CBI. BJP can’t force our MPs to utter NaMo by influencing the agencies against them.” he said. He added, “How does Rahul Sinha who is not even a minister threaten us?”
