partha chatterjee: SSC scam news: Partha Chatterjee removed from West Bengal treasury

Bangladeshi Minister Partha Chatterjee, who was arrested on Thursday, was removed from the ministry with immediate effect as per the official orders issued by the state government.

The minister was accused in a recruitment scam in West Bengal.

“Partha Chatterjee, accused in a recruitment fraud in West Bengal, has been relieved of his duties as Minister responsible for his departments as of July 28,” ANI news agency wrote on Twitter, citing the West Bengal government on Twitter.

Earlier today, Trinamool Congress leader Kunal Ghosh urged his party to sack Chatterjee and also remove him from all party positions following allegations of his role in a massive school job scam.

State Secretary General Kunal Ghosh said in a tweet, “Partha Chatterjee must be removed from the ministry and all party posts immediately. He must be expelled. If this statement is deemed false, the party has every right to disqualify me from all posts.” .

The Department of Enforcement (ED) on Saturday arrested Chatterjee in connection with the West Bengal School Services Commission and the West Bengal Primary Education Board recruitment scam.

The CEO also claimed that he seized a huge amount of cash in the case. Partha Chatterjee, the current Minister of Industry and Commerce of West Bengal, was previously the Minister of Education of the state. He was holding the charge when the alleged illegal appointments were made in government-run schools assisted by the West Bengal Schools Services Commission (WBSSC).

Enforcement Directorate (ED) officials also claimed to have recovered cash of approximately Rs 29 crore from the residence of Arpita Mukherjee, a close associate of the West Bengal state minister. The total cash back in the case is known to be higher.

Besides cash, a number of documents, records, details of suspicious companies, electronic devices, foreign currencies and gold have also been recovered from various places of individuals linked to the scam.
