After much speculation over the authenticity of tapes, Narada News has decided to publish the unedited version of the X Files Sting operation footage exposing corrupt Trinamool Congress leaders. The fifth video footage in the series features senior TMC leader and state Panchayat and rural development minister Subrata Mukherjee.
West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee has at many occasions flaunted her association with Subrarta Mukherjee and considers Subrata as her mentor. The veteran TMC leader in the sting video can be seen accepting bribe to favor the fictitious company and promote it.
The undercover Narada News journalist, editor in chief Mathew Samuel, met Subrata posing to be a representative of a fictitious consultancy company lobbying for some 25 big MNCs who would like to win tenders and start projects in West Bengal. Subrata can bee seen accepting Rs 4 lakh for helping the company. His associate can be heard in the background saying: “He is no 2 in the party, no less than Rs 5 lakh.” Subrata (laughing) is seen claiming: “He is with me; he is the man who makes me impure.”
Narada News stated: “This is advance; after you come to power we want work, you have to do that,” adding, “I have some money with me.” (7:20) To which Subrata eagerly responds: “Ya, give it.”
