Three Trinamool Congress MPs have written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi demanding the removal of Solicitor General Tushar Mehta from the post. In a letter to PM Modi by TMC MPs Derek O'Brien, Mahua Moitra, and Sukhendra Shekhar Roy, the three leaders alleged that SG Tushar Mehta had met BJP leader and Narada scam accused Suvendu Adhikari. Therefore, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta should be removed from the post immediately.
At the same time, an important statement of Tushar Mehta has also come out in this matter. He said that Suvendu officers came to my residence and office on Thursday at around 3 pm without prior knowledge. Since I was already in a pre-scheduled meeting in my cubicle, my staff requested her to sit in the waiting room. He was offered a cup of tea. When my meeting was over my office staff informed me about the arrival of Suvendu Adhikari. I requested my office staff to express my inability to meet the officer and apologize for waiting. The officers then left without requesting me to meet them. So the question of my meeting with the officer does not arise.
