New Delhi :BJP member Nishikant Dubey in Lok Sabha Thursday demanded a CBI inquiry into the functioning of chit fund companies and jail for people involved in ponzi schemes.
Raising the issue during Zero Hour, he said people in states like West Bengal have been hit by chit fund companies as they take deposits illegally.
“All chit fund companies should be closed and CBI should do an inquiry. Jail people who are behind these,” Dubey said.
Without taking any name, he said after 2011 in West Bengal, the number of companies increased rapidly.
These firms, he alleged, are being run by a nexus of journalists, bureaucrats and politicians.
Taking a dig at West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, he alleged that in such cases, when a bureaucrat was called by the CBI for questioning, people sat on dharna.
