Dilip Ghosh's lawyer sent a legal notice to Mr Banerjee for the words he allegedly used at a rally in Bengal's South 24 Parganas district on Sunday (November 29).

At the rally in Satgachhia, Abhishek Banerjee had referred to Dilip Ghosh as a goonda (goon) and accused him of having links with the mafia in Bengal.

The legal notice sent by Ghosh through his lawyer Partha Ghosh requests Abhishek to withdraw his remarks within three days “in the same manner in which they were made and published, along with an unconditional apology”.

Ghosh said, “The court will decide on the allegations by the TMC leader and the society should at the same time contemplate whether such politics should be allowed or not.”

The BJP accuses the young MP of having links with drug and coal mafia and calls him bhaipo or bhatija (nephew), a reference to his relation with chief minister Mamata Banerjee.
