BYJM Leader Pamela Goswami Cries Foul In Drug Case Involvement
BJP leader Rakesh Singh, who was accused by Pamela Goswami of a conspiracy rubbished his involvement in the drugs case and declared that he would resign from politics if her allegations are proven correct
Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BYJM) leader Pamela Goswami cried foul after a narcotics court sent her to police custody till 25 February. The Bengal state secretary of the party’s youth wing was arrested on Friday after she was caught with 100 grams of cocaine. During her judicial hearing on Saturday, Goswami blamed BJP politician Rakesh Singh of framing her as a part of a conspiracy and even went on to accuse him of planting drug packets in her car. In a viral video, the former actress is heard screaming and demanding for a CBI enquiry. Police sources however reveal that the young politician’s father had informed the authorities earlier of his daughter’s substance addiction under the influence of her friend.
Meanwhile, Rakesh Singh rubbished the allegations saying that he will resign from politics if Pamela’s claims are proven correct.
The matter did not take much time to turn into a political slugfest between the BJP and the Trinamool Congress (TMC). While the saffron party’s state president Dilip Ghosh called this a revenge mechanism by the Mamata Banerjee government, TMC senior leader Saugata Roy said that this is the second incident involving a BJP female politician, the first being a young party worker’s involvement in a smuggling case in the Jalpaiguri district.
In a related news, an old video of Pamela Goswami has gone viral where she is seen lashing out at the WB government and hailing Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Calling the chief minister a self-proclaimed supremo of the state, Goswami talks about the sad plight of law and order and the lack of action on the part of the law enforcement authorities. She also claimed that in the state, while the PM’s photos will be burnt, only the CM’s pictures will be garlanded.
