Quotes

The Saradha scam, a ponzi scheme in which the public lost about ` "3,000 crore, flourished in eastern India where banking penetration was low and faith in post office savings had eroded due to low interest rates. Saradha, like Sahara and other chit fund companies, tried to step in to fill this gap and pick up small savings of the poor by promising better returns. When these chit fund companies began to grow bigger by purchasing legitimacy from politicians and investing in unviable projects, this house of cards came down. A number of lives were lost due to the busting of the chit fund company. Banerjee provided a bailout of `500 crore, but it did not serve any purpose. Saradha’s collapse also hurt media houses it funded, film companies, football clubs like East Bengal and many other entities on West Bengal’s cultural and political scene."
...In his plea before the court, Bhushan submitted that the revelation "portrays a very disturbing and explosive material coming in the way, virtually interfering with the administration of justice in several sensitive cases."
