Trinamool tries to dissociate itself from ISI links

New Delhi: The Trinamool Congress on Tuesday hit back at the Opposition in West Bengal saying that the party had no links with the two suspected ISI agents who were nabbed recently.

Secretary General of Trinamool Congress Partha Chatterjee said, “The Opposition’s allegations were baseless and they were concocting allegations.”

Despite, reports mushroomed up that two of the three suspected Inter State Intelligence agents arrested on Sunday were Trinamool cadres, the party rubbished allegations citing that they were expelled from political outfit months back.

Partha Chatterjee, who also holds the Education portfolio of the State, said that since Trinamool Congress assumed power in West Bengal, many people joined the party at grass root level.

Notably, Irshad Ansari who was among the three ‘ISI agents’ arrested was an active member of the Trinamool Congress affiliated workers union at a shipbuilding factory at the port area. He had been working there for the last ten years.

Another accused, Ashfaq Ansari was a former general secretary of the Trinamool Congress Chhatra Parishad in Harimohan Ghosh College in Garden Reach. Ansari had allegedly siphoned off classified information to the Pakistan’s ISI.

However, there were plenty of allegations that the Trinamool Congress had uses terrorists during the polls to come into polls. Bangladeshi terrorists also had taken refuge in West Bengal.

Some Kolkata-based hotels run by Urdu-speaking Muslims are sheltering them. The Pakistani ISI is sending them money via hundi to stay in India. They are trained in Kolkata by Indian militants. A Dhaka University Senate Member brought this issue to fore during his stay in Kolkata recently.

His interactions with some hotel owners confirmed that these militants go to Bangladesh for subversive activities and return to Kolkata after mission’s completion. It was also established that the hotel owners in Kolkata extended full hospitality to these militants while the Urdu speaking Muslim members in the Trinamool Congress patronized them. It is gauged that these militants will play an active role in the ensuing polls in West Bengal.
