Mamata also spoke on the Rafale issue by claiming that she neither supported nor opposed the Congress over the matter.

This has resulted in some Trinamool leaders returning back their cut money which included a Trinamool booth president from Birbhum district’s Chatra giving back Rs 1,641 per person to 141 villagers who had applied for jobs under MGNREGA.

Mamata though has refused to acknowledge corruption in her party by claiming that politicians in Bengal are more honest as compared to politicians of other states.
