After Mamta Banerjee declared KD Singh as persona non grata in the party recently, the Trinamool MPs have been banned from talking to their colleagues in the parliament. Only Derek O Brian is allowed to stay in touch with him as he is the head of the house. According to The Indian Express, for all others it will be nothing more than exchange of courtesies.

After police initiated a case against the Alchemist Chief and Trinamool Congress MP KD Singh for allegedly cheating investors, West Bengal Chief Minister and party’s supremo Mamata Banerjee on Thursday said giving him a ticket was a “blunder”. “Giving a ticket to KD Singh was my blunder. We did make a mistake,” She told Bengali TV channel – ABP Ananda in an interview.

A suo-moto case was started by the Kolkata police against the Group’s chit fund arm and its owners including KD Singh for alleged cheating on the basis of a complaint lodged by 69 investors on March 16 in city’s Bowbazar police station, police said on Thursday.

Incidentally, Narada News chief Mathew Samuel, who conducted a sting operation purportedly showing Trinamool Congress leaders accepting bribes, reportedly claimed that the sting operation was sponsored by Alchemist chief KD Singh.

“Narada issue is a case of political conspiracy. BJP has good relation with KD Singh and it may be the case that he was forced to do it (fund the Narada sting operation). I do not know,” Banerjee said when asked about the sponsorship of the sting operation.

“The conspiracy angle of the Narada sting must be investigated. Why were 2014 tapes published in 2016?” she asked.
