New Delhi [India], Feb. 3 (ANI): The Trinamool Congress (TMC) on Friday staged a protest against the BJP-led government at the Centre over demonetisation and the arrest of senior party member Sudip Bandyopadhyay in connection with the chit-fund scam. Holding placards which read "Our democratic fight against the undemocratic arrest of our Parliamentary leader" and "Political Vendetta", the TMC leaders raised slogans against the government during the protest near Mahatma Gandhi's statue in Parliament. TMC MP Kalyan Banerjee accused the Centre of taking revenge with the arrest of his party leaders. "They are doing everything out of a political vendetta...The Centre is taking revenge by arresting our leader, but they should know that in this way they cannot stop us," he said. Echoing similar sentiments, TMC leader Kakoli Ghosh told ANI, "People are fed up of this demonetisation. We are raising our voice for the people. The BJP had arrested Sudip Banerjee for no reason. We are protesting against this corrupt politics." (ANI)
