Kolkata: West Bengal’s Bharatiya Jananta Party President Dilip Ghosh on Monday sent a legal notice to Trinamool Congress MP and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s nephew Abhishek Banerjee for calling him a ‘goon and mafia’.
The notice served to Banerjee said that the Trinamool Congress Lok Sabha MP from Diamond Harbour will have to tender unconditional apology and withdraw the statement within the next three days. Ghosh also termed junior Banerjee as ‘khokababu‘ (kid) in politics.
“Political leaders should have a sense of political courtesy. Politicians should think before saying something. The politician who is calling me a mafia should explain to the people about the lifestyle he leads. He stays in a residential building worth Rs 7 crore. People will understand everything and they will give a befitting reply to them,” said Ghosh in a press conference.
While addressing a rally on Sunday, Trinamool youth wing president Banerjee had said that no BJP leader, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has the guts to call him by his name and instead they use innuendos like ‘bhaipo‘ or ‘bhatija‘ (nephew) to hurl verbal attacks at him.
Banerjee had allegedly named BJP state unit chief as a ‘gunda‘ (goon) and ‘mafia’ and called BJP central leader Kailash Vijayvargiya an ‘outsider’.
