TMC MPs create ruckus in Lok Sabha as BJP levels graft allegations

New Delhi: Trinamool Congress MPs on Tuesday created ruckus in the Lok Sabha after a BJP MP alleged that it has emerged that the West Bengal Chief Minister's address was misused in a scam involving shell companies.

After the BJP MP Kirit Somaiya levelled the allegation while referring to the scam, almost all TMC MPs rose from their seats and vociferously protested the charges, calling them "totally baseless".

They shouted slogans against the central government and then trooped into the Well of the House. Earlier during the Zero Hour, Somaiya alleged that a politician in Bihar has links with the scam relating to shell companies in the state.

He alleged that a similar scam had taken place in West Bengal and that it has been found that the address of the Chief Minister was given by the shell company during its registration.

The TMC MPs took strong objection to the comments and demanded that the Speaker should expunge them from the records.
