‘Mamata govt has no right to rule’: AAP protests school jobs scam in West Bengal


PTI, Aug 7, 2022, 3:42 PM IST

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supporters hit the streets of Kolkata on Sunday, protesting against the TMC government in West Bengal over the school jobs scam.

Armed with placards stating ‘Durnitir Sarkar Aar Nei Dorkar’ (don’t want this corrupt governement), around 2,000 AAP supporters started the protest march at Ramlila Maidan and walked till the Mahatma Gandhi statue on Mayo Road, covering a distance of 2 km.

The Enforcement Directorate has arrested former Education Minister of West Bengal Partha Chatterjee and his aide Arpita Mukherjee in the school jobs scam after the recovery of huge amounts of cash and other valuables at properties linked to them.

”After the arrest of a TMC heavyweight and the recovery of huge amounts of cash from the two flats of his female friend, this government has no moral right to stay in power for a single day. Our big rally is raising the demand once more,” said a state AAP leader.

AAP, which has a negligible presence in West Bengal, has been protesting against the Mamata Banerjee government in the state over the last one year.

The protest march was a big show of strength for the party, which is looking to make its presence feel in the state.
