New Delhi: Trinamool Congress MP Sudip Bandyopadhyay has been summoned by the CBI on December 30 in connection with a chit fund scam case.

“I will go and find out what the allegations are. It’s not good to be constantly called and issued summons,” Bandyopadhyay said on Tuesday.

Reports of the summons came hours after TMC supremo and West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee took on the Modi government at a joint press conference with other opposition parties, including the Congress.

Banerjee also said the demonetisation decision was “illegal” and “unconstitutional” and has set the economy 20 years back. “Modi, you had asked for 50 days’ time, people were losing livelihood, dying due to starvation, yet they gave you that time. Now 47 days are over, and only three days left,” said Banerjee referring to Modi’s 50-day deadline nearing its end.

“We will wait for the next three days. But Modi, if things remain unsolved, will you take the responsibility and resign as the Prime Minister of the country,” she asked.
