Except for a statement by party spokesman Derek O'Brien on the day the news broke, the TMC has remained uncharacteristically oblivious of the issue.
Mamata Banerjee's Facebook account has not said anything either. These days she is usually quick to react through Facebook on matters concerning the Centre. Neither has any party MP attacked the Centre over the case. The speculation is that if the probe does dig into the appointments done since 2009, many uncomfortable truths might tumble out.
