New Delhi:

BJP leader Smriti Irani made a penetrating comment about the Chief Minister of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee, saying that the Supreme Court order that the Kolkata police chief should cooperate with the CBI in its investigation into the Bengal Ponzi scams, it was “an egg in the face”.

The Supreme Court mediated between the warring CBI and the West Bengal government, ordering Kolkata police chief Rajeev Kumar to appear before the investigative agency in Shillong on February 20. He also barred the agency from arresting Mr. Kumar. After the verdict, both sides claimed victory.

“Only the people and nobody is the great head of this country … Only democracy is the great head of this country,” Mamata Banerjee told reporters from the place where she had been protesting since Sunday. She added: “It’s not just my victory, it’s a victory of the constitution, a victory to Save India.”

After the comment, Ms. Irani addressed a press conference. “With the egg in your face, celebrating it as a moral victory is a dichotomy available only for the scope of Mamata Banerjee’s policy,” he said.

“The Supreme Court led the political officials of Mamata Banerjee to abruptly stop, the political environment in West Bengal was not adequate, the Supreme Court dictated its opinion considering that and ordered the Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar to will present at Shillong. “Ms. Irani was quoted by PTI saying.

Mamata Banerjee canceled his protest, which made Calcutta the political capital of the country for the past three days. “We will not stop the fight, we will take it to Delhi,” announced the head of government of Bengal, along with his counterpart from Andhra Pradesh, Chandrababu Naidu, in the esplanade of Kolkata, where he has been camping.

The BJP and the Prime Minister of West Bengal have been on a collision course for months. Last year, they clashed over the BJP rathyatra, which was blocked by the government of Ms. Banerjee. On Sunday, the reason for the discussion was that the CBI approached Kumar’s house. The team was arrested and briefly detained. But the incident angered Mrs. Banerjee, who sat in a protest that lasted three days.
