The youth wing of the Trinamool Congress on Friday hit the streets protesting against the Financial Resolution and Deposit Insurance (FRDI) Bill, saying the hard-earned bank deposits of the people would be at risk once the legislation was passed.Led by Trinamool Youth Congress national President Abhishek Banerjee, thousands of workers of the organisation took part in a rally from Jadavpur to Hazra in south Kolkata.In his address on the occasion, Banerjee said: "If FRDI Bill is passed, the hard-earned deposits of people in banks would be at risk."He said there was no difference between the BJP leaders and those like Saradha Group head Sudipto Sen, now under arrest for his involvement in the ponzi scam."(Prime Minister) Narendra Modi and (BJP chief) Amit Shah are trying to usurp the money of people, just like chit funds. If Sudipto Sen has been arrested, why won't steps be taken against BJP leaders?"As long as Trinamool is in existence, we will not allow FRDI Bill to be passed. The Bill has already been referred to a Select Committee. We will fight till the end," he said.Refering to the Gujarat polls, Banerje said though the BJP managed to scrape through, it came up with its worst performance in 22 years."They even lost in Narendra Modi's hometown. This only show s BJP will be voted out in 2019; their death knell has been rung," he said.
