TMC MP Abhishek Banerjee shoots legal notice to BJP MP Babul Supriyo
Kolkata/UNI: All India Trinamool Youth Congress president Abhishek Banerjee, MP from Diamond Harbour Lok Sabha constituency, on Saturday dashed off a legal notice to BJP MP from Asansol and Union Minister of State Babul Supriyo for the latter's tweet.
The tweet attacked Abhishek and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
Describing the tweet as "false and incorrect", Abhishek through his lawyer asked Supriyo to withdraw the tweet and demanded an apology.
The legal notice said: "The minister had tweeted certain false and incorrect statements against my client which also concerns Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and the state government at large.
"The narration contained in your tweet is false to your knowledge, fake and distorted with the intent to instigate the supporters of my client and that of the Chief Minister."
The notice further said, "You have deliberately used the phrase 'amanobik mukhyomontri (inhuman chief minister) in your tweet.
"The tweet posted by you is false, defamatory, malicious and politically motivated. Your attempt to engage in wrongful dissemination of information to the public is evident from the very fact that you have cherry-picked certain words and presented it in an incorrect manner, so as to give a wrongful meaning and a false representation thereof."
"You have also cropped and posted a video of our client to support your allegation," the lawyer stated.
