TMC's Saugata Roy claims UPA may use CBI to ensure SP, BSP support

New Delhi: The Trinamool Congress has upped the attack on the Congress alleging that Congress may use the CBI to get BSP, SP support. Speaking to IBN18 Editor-in-Chief Rajdeep Sardesai, TMC minister Saugata Roy claimed the UPA would use the CBI to ensure the support of the BSP and SP.

"We do not know where and how the government will manage its numbers. It is not our concern whether the CBI cases are used as an instrument or if there are other incentives. We do not know and we do not care. Our commitment is to the people. We shall oppose any anti-people step taken by the central government," Roy said.

He also said that the Trinamool Congress was ready for mid-term elections.

However, the Congress remained undeterred. Congress leader Renuka Chowdhary said, "India comes first, we will die but we will finish our commitment to the country."
