All India Trinamool Youth Congress President Abhishek Banerjee has sent a legal notice to BJP MP Babul Supriyo for allegedly making derogatory remarks against him.
Abhishek Banerjee has asked Babul Supriyo to apologise for his derogatory remarks which he has made against Banerjee. The TMC leader has asked Supriyo to apologise within 72 hours.
The legal notice reads, “Being aggrieved with your defamatory and false statements, my client had instituted a suit for defamation and injunction before the learned 3rd Bench, City Civil Court at Calcutta when the learned court was pleased to grant an ad-interim order of injunction on December 8, 2017, restraining you from making any derogatory comment or defamatory statement against our client.”
“On 30 November 2017, you had made false and defamatory statements in a press conference at Asansol linking our client to an illegal coal mafia and accusing him of illegitimately profiteering from the smuggling of coal in the State of West Bengal," the notice further read.
In September 2020, Abhishek Banerjee has sent a legal notice to Babul Supriyo asking him to withdraw the ''false and incorrect'' tweet which he made against Abhishek Banerjee and Mamata Banerjee.
The TMC leader demanded Mr Supriyo's apology over the statements he made against him and the Bengal government.
