Taking a dig at West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, the Janata Dal (United) on Thursday highlighted the Saradha chit-fund scam and alleged that lies in the Trinamool Congress (TMC) bastion.

JD (U) leader lashed out at Mamata over recent outburst against Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government's decision to demonetise high-value currency notes.

"More than 200 companies in East India are involved in the generation of and the headquarters of such companies are in Bengal," Singh told ANI outside the Parliament here.

"The headquarters of these companies, located in Bihar, Odisha, Jharkhand and Assam, are in Bengal and it is these companies that exploit the common man," he added.

Seeking a reply from the TMC supremo, the JD (U) leader said that the former is answerable for all the scams happening in West Bengal.

Meanwhile, Singh also made it clear that the JD (U) was in tune with the government's move.

He, however, urged the ruling dispensation at the Centre to make it more easy and convenient for the common people.

"The government should focus on providing immediate relief to people," he said.

The JD (U) leader further said Bihar Chief Minister is in support of demonetisation, but wants the government to take stringent actions against those having unaccounted income and the people involved in alcohol trade.

"ji chooses his words carefully unlike Mamata Banerjee, who makes statements without giving a thought and later apologises for such statements. She herself does not understand what kinds of words she uses," he said.

Both the Houses of Parliament have witnessed disruptions over the move with a united opposition mounting pressure on the government to rollback its November 8 decision.

The government has, however, so far silenced all critics and categorically stated that this move is aimed at getting rid of the menace.
