Senior TMC leader Madan Mitra on Friday appeared before Enforcement Directorate (ED) officials in connection with the probe in the Saradha Scam case. "It's a routine thing. Enforcement Directorate is an authorised agency as per the Constitution and the legal side of the country. They called, I came. But 2-3 hours during election period is very costly, I tried my best to convince them that I'll come whenever they call me. Even you do not call me by summon, you call me on mobile only. In 2 hours we could have covered at least 2 blocks to get mandate of the people," Mitra said. "Whatever they wanted Pan card, Adhaar card, voter card, income tax returns, I tried to give them all sort of information , the mandate of the electorate is the protection of the democracy and the country. Just give me the time I will come on time. Every time I tried my best to co-operate with the investigation and this time also I am doing that," he added.
