BJP leader Sayantan Basu further claimed, “The backs of the Trinamool Congress ministers and leaders could not be saved if the state government starts the recruitment process for TET. The law and order situation will deteriorate. The TMC leader has taken a lot of money from the students appearing for the TET exam. The TET’s appointment needed to be postponed.”
