BJP MP from West Bengal Locket Chatterjee accuses TMC leaders of taking cut-money from grassroots functionaries
BJP MP from Hooghly, Locket Chatterjee on Tuesday accused the ruling TMC leaders in West Bengal of taking cut-money from people. The cut-money issue has become a raging issue in the state in last few days after the chief minister reportedly issued a diktat asking the party leaders to return the 'cut' money they had taken from people.
