Abhishek Banerjee sends legal notice to Suvendu Adhikari
TMC MP Abhishek Banerjee has sent a legal notice to BJP leader Suvendu Adhikari asking him to apologize within 36 hours for making "defamatory statements" against Banerjee.
The legal notice stated that if an apology is not tendered within 36 hours, legal proceedings will be initiated.
The notice sent by Abhishek Banerjee to Suvendu Adhikari also states that Adhikari is an accused in multiple criminal cases despite which he is questioning the integrity of Abhishek Banerjee without any evidence.
Mentioning about the Saradha Chit Fund and the Narada bribery cases, the notice says, "Engulfed in egotism and arrogance, you seem to have forgotten about your many crimes committed against the public.”
Abhishek Banerjee's lawyer said in the notice, "In the event you fail to comply with the same, my client shall be constrained to initiate appropriate proceedings against you, both civil and/or criminal, in accordance with law, without any further notice."
Earlier this month, Abhishek Banerjee had sent a legal notice to Union Minister Babul Supriyo for making corruption allegations against him.
