Jain met Vineet Narayan, the journalist who exposed the hawala
On reaching Delhi, Mamata Banerjee met senior journalist Vineet Narayan on Monday evening at the residence of her nephew and Lok Sabha MP Abhishek Banerjee. Journalist Vineet Narayan had exposed the Jain diary in 1995-96 through his video magazine Kalachakra, in which there was mention of giving lakhs of rupees to senior leaders through hawala. Recently, Mamta had accused West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar of taking money through hawala. It is believed that his meeting with Vineet Narayan was in this regard.
According to sources, his schedule of meeting with opposition leaders has gone into turmoil. Mamta’s program to meet opposition leaders on Tuesday has come to a standstill due to the ban on entry of any person other than MPs in the Central Hall of Parliament due to the Kovid-19 protocol.
Mamta Banerjee, who arrived in Delhi during the monsoon session of Parliament, can also meet leaders of other opposition parties.
