Kolkata, Feb 5 — Questioning West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's honesty, her predecessor Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee Tuesday asked the media to probe her family condition after she came to power as compared to what it was earlier.
Asked to comment in an interview with Bengali television channel Chobbis Ghanta on the Trinamool Congress projecting Banerjee as a symbol of honesty, Bhattacharjee replied: "I am unable to agree".
Pressed further, the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) politburo member said: "You conduct a probe into her family condition now as compared to what it was earlier. According to my yardstick, she does not pass the yardstick of honesty."
"I would have been happy had she been honest. But I am unable to accept her as honest. And this is no secret. Lot of people close to her know this and they have started talking about it," Bhattacharjee told the news channel.
Asked whether he could give details, he said: "I am not a drain inspector. If you feel like, you can probe it. Lot of people know what those close to her are doing. What all is happening. Everything will come out if there is an investigation. There will not be much of a problem in digging those things out."
