BJP Yuva Morcha’s WB Secretary Arrested For Possession Of Cocaine</a></span></strong></p> <p><strong>Allegations &amp; Responses</strong></p> <p>"I want a CID investigation. Rakesh Singh is close to Kailash Vijayvargiya. Arrest him. This is his conspiracy. I have all evidence," Goswami shouted, speaking to the mediapersons before entering the courtroom.</p> <p>Meanwhile, Rakesh Singh claims that Goswami had been "brainwashed" by the Kolkata police and the ruling Trinamool Congress (TMC) party. He added that he was not in touch with her for over a year and is ready to face investigation by any agency.</p> <p>"If I am involved, they can call me or Kailash Vijayvargiya or Amit Shah. I think the police have brainwashed her. I am not in touch with Pamela for more than one-and-a half-years now," Singh told PTI.</p> <p>"It’s possible that the Kolkata police is following the Trinamool Congress’s instructions. They are conspiring against me. These are baseless accusations and I am ready to face any challenge," he added.</p> <p>The TMC was quick to grab the opportunity to berate the BJP, its challenger in the assembly election sweepstake.</p> <p>"Earlier, one of their leaders was arrested for involvement in child trafficking. Now another has been arrested in a drugs case. This proves what the BJP and its leaders are up to," TMC secretary-general and state minister Partha Chatterjee said.</p> <p>"Only criminals, drug addicts and peddlers are associated with a corrupt party like the BJP," Firhad Hakim, a minister in the Mamata Banerjee cabinet, said.</p> <p>Meanwhile, Kailash Vijayvargiya expressed faith in the judicial system and talked about law taking its own course.</p> <p>"I do not know about this incident and hence will not like to comment. I have full trust in our legal system. If someone is found guilty, the law will take its own course," he said.</p> <p>(With Agency Inputs)</p>
