GUWAHATI, Sept 1 � The Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) today demanded bringing Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi under the purview of the CBI inquiry into the Saradha chit fund scam.

AGP leader Dr Kamala Kalita alleged that the very fact that a scam of this magnitude flourished during his tenure, brings Gogoi under the scanner.

At a press conference, Kalita said it was the moral responsibility of the Chief Minister to undergo the investigation. �The same Tarun Gogoi who demanded a CBI probe in even the most trivial issues relating to former Chief Minister Prafulla Mahanta, cannot shrug off the allegations against him,� said Kalita.

In a bid to strengthen the party, the AGP is holding a national political convention on October 14 and 15 here, where representatives from various segments both from within and outside the party are supposed to take part.

Meanwhile, the BJP, Assam Pradesh today raised the demand for bringing Chief Minister Gogoi within the ambit of the CBI probe into the Saradha chit fund scam. The party said that for a thorough investigation into the scam the Chief Minister, who also holds the home and finance portfolios, should be covered by the inquiry.

Addressing mediapersons here, party spokesperson Adip Phukan said had the Chief Minister acted in time when various groups and organisations in the State had raised a hue and cry over the dubious acts of the non-banking financial companies, the people would not have been fleeced of their hard-earned money.

Phukan said the Chief Minister had always remained silent over the activities of the dubious non-banking financial companies that have been operating in the State without fulfilling the norms laid down by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) or the Securities and Exchange Board of India. �Crores of rupees of the common people have been looted by the non-banking financial institutions. Whose responsibility was it to check such fraud?� asked Phukan, pointing out that the Chief Minister, who also holds the home and finance portfolios, chose to turn a blind eye to all these developments.
