Kolkata: West Bengal Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) member Pamela Goswami who has been arrested for possession of 100 gm of cocaine has made allegations against other BJP leaders. Pamela Goswami was produced before court today and she said that Police should arrest BJP Bengal Chief Kailash Vijayvargiya’s close aide Rakesh Singh in the case. However, we couldn’t verify why she was demanding the BJP leader’s arrest.
After Pamela accused Rakesh Singh, he spoke to ABP News refuting the claims.
Rakesh Singh said that he has no involvement with her or in the case and he will quit politics if he is found guilty. Rakesh Singh also said that it is a trap by TMC to defame BJP as he was not in contact with Pamela for past 2 years. He said that there are chances that she may falsely name other BJP leaders but we are all ready to face it if required as we are not involved in such activities. He also said that the police should do serious investigation bverify facts on the case as Pamela can name anybody now, even her father but it will not be true.
