"We have given a notice for suspension of question hour, we want a discussion over this issue," Bandhopadhyay said.

"In a raid by CBI, from Sahara's office a red diary was recovered in which Amit Shah's name is mentioned," he said.  

The MPs wanted to know from Prime Minister Narendra Modi what action has been taken against the BJP president whose name allegedly featured in a red dairy recovered from Sahara chief Subrata Roy's office.

Earlier on Sunday after Shah's rally in Kolkata, West Bengal Panchayat Minister has said,''Recently Sahara chief was arrested and a red diary was recovered. We heard Narendra Modi and Amit Shah’s name features in the diary. What action has been taken against them?”

Subrata Roy was arrested on February 28 this year and is still behind the bars.

TMC leaders also alleged that the Centre was using the CBI to settle political vendetta.



“NIA and CBI have become political allies of BJP now. Do not forget WB government arrested the kingpin of chit funds, not the CBI. We returned `5 lakh to the people,” claimed Mukherjee.

While addressing a huge rally in Kolkata on Sunday, Shah on Sunday alleged that Saradha chit fund money was used in the October 2 Burdwan blast.

"Saradha Chit Fund money was used in the Burdwan blast. The NIA is not being allowed to probe the blast properly. Hurdles are being created. It is being done in order to save TMC leaders who are involved in the blast," he said.

Lashing out at Banerjee for daring to say that the CBI was being used in the Saradha scam to settle political scores, Shah dared her to declare that those arrested by the CBI in connection with the Saradha chit fund scandal were innocent.

"If Mamata Banerjee has the guts then why is she not saying that those arrested by the CBI in the Saradha scam are innocent? Earlier it was only alleged, but now it is proved that TMC leaders are involved in the scam," Shah said.
