The arrest of West Bengal minister Partha Chatterjee by the Enforcement Directorate and the discovery of mountains of cash and valuables from properties allegedly linked to him has embarrassed a section of alumni of the Narendrapur Ramakrishna Mission in South 24 Parganas district. is given
Chatterjee has often said that he is an alumnus of the institution and studied there for six years.
Some former students of Narendrapur Ramakrishna Mission told News18 that this is a lie and the suspended Trinamool Congress leader stayed there only for one year, after which he was given a transfer certificate.
“He is not that kind of alumnus,” said Dibot Ghosh Thakur, a former journalist and student of the Narendrapur Ramakrishna Mission. I remember once he claimed on stage during a program that he studied at Narendrapur. When he came down from the stage, I told him to tell the truth, he is not really an alumnus of Narendrapur. We hear that he took TC and studied there for more than a year.
Whatsapp groups of alumni of the Narendrapur Ramakrishna Mission have been flooded with messages expressing outrage over Chatterjee’s claim for the past week.
Alumni members in India and abroad are angry and embarrassed that the name of the institution is being exposed in connection with the so-called SSC scam because of the sacked minister.
Another former student told News18, “Usually Narendrapur doesn’t give TCs, but in his case, we heard, one was given. It seems like the authorities understood its origin. There are two other examples of giving TCs in Narendrapur, and both of them are also infamous for several reasons.
Since Partha Chatterjee was the state education minister, his claim was not disputed except on one occasion, sources said.
He added that he should not be called an alumnus of Narendrapur Ramakrishna Mission. He said that a person can be considered an alumni of the institution only if he has studied up to class 10 or in class 11 and 12.
