The Indian Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) has said it has not received any report that was mentioned in a news item that a member of the Trinamool Congress has diverted certain funds to Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami to destabilise the present Awami League government."My attention was drawn to this report by a Kolkata-based news organisation. I immediately checked this and I can confirm to you, as of now we've not received any report of the sort that is mentioned in that news report," said official spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin. He came up with the remark when a questioner said the government of Bangladesh has raised with the Indian government the fact that a member of the Trinamool Congress has diverted certain funds from this particular scam that has been talked about to fund the Jamaat-e-Islami and destabilise the Sheikh Hasina government in Bangladesh and wanted to know whether it was correct or not, according to Indian MEA website.Indian central intelligence agencies now claim they have sufficient evidence that Saradha funds were used by 'fundamentalist outfits' in Bangladesh against the Awami League before the January 5 elections, reports The Times of India on Sunday.The Saradha scam seems to be getting murkier by the day and this has got the Centre worried as it does not want ties with the present government in Bangladesh to suffer due to this.The transfer of funds was allegedly facilitated by Trinamool Congress MP Ahmad Hasan Imran, a former general secretary of the banned Students' Islamic Movement of India. While Hasan has vehemently denied these allegations, BJP has made this an issue. According to BJP, Trinamool was assured by Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami that a section of leaders of the minority community in West Bengal would mobilise the minority vote bank in the party's favour. It was also alleged that Trinamool took help from Bangladeshi criminals, belonging to fundamentalist outfits, during the Lok Sabha polls in seats along the international border."No wonder, the Mamata Banerjee government didn't allow a support rally in Kolkata in favour of the Shahbag Movement that was underway in Bangladesh in 2013. She was made to believe that this would irk certain outfits," the report quoted a senior BJP leader as saying.According to intelligence agencies, Sudipta Sen may not have had any sympathy for the Jamaat or other fundamentalist outfits in Bangladesh. His aim was to invest his money.Ever since this report surfaced, chief minister Mamata Banerjee has been silent on the issue.
