Amit Shah's name is in Sahara diary, says Trinamool

Amit Shah's name is in Sahara diary, says Trinamool

The Trinamool Congress on Monday created ruckus in the Lok Sabha waving copies of a “red diary”, which the party claimed had been recovered from tainted Sahara chief Subrata Roy and contained the name of Amit Shah and a suspicious initial of “NM.”

The protest comes a day after BJP president Amit Shah's successful rally in Kolkata, in which he had claimed that the saffron party would oust the Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool from West Bengal in the 2016 Assembly elections.

While Banerjee did not comment on Shah challenges, Trinamool leaders in both Houses of Parliament on Monday waved copies of the red diary, which they claimed contained evidence of links between Shah and the Sahara chief, who is currently lodged in Tihar jail. They claimed that the CBI had found the diary during searches at Sahara's office on November 22.

Trinamool MPs rushed to the well in the Lok Sabha, shouting slogans and demanding government explanation on the “NM” initials, hinting that it could mean Narendra Modi. They later staged a walkout.

Outside the Parliament, Trinamool leader Sudeep Bandopadhyay said the BJP chief's name was mentioned in the diary. “We want to know why they are being secretive about the names. Why is the CBI not revealing the names? We will not let it go. We want a discussion on the issue,” he said. 

RS member Derek Obrien said chairman Hamid Ansari had allowed the party to raise the issue in the House on Tuesday.
