New Delhi: Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit
Friday replied to the notice served on her by Delhi BJP chief Vijender Gupta over a week back seeking an unconditional apology from her for her remarks alleging that an NGO run by
his wife was involved in "wrongdoings".
In her reply to the notice Dikshit asked Gupta to
withdraw it immediately or face legal consequences.
"Chief minister has asked Gupta to withdraw the notice
forthwith failing which necessary legal procedure will
follow," a source close to Dikshit said.
Dikshit has rejected point by point the notice served on
her by the BJP leader on March 14 in which he had accused her
of unleashing a "vilification campaign" against him to get
political mileage in next month`s civic polls.
Alleging that the Chief Minister had failed to adhere to
the norms of "political conduct" while eyeing to regain power
in the municipal corporation, Gupta had claimed that Dikshit
levelled the allegations to damage his political image knowing
well that the charges were false.
"You are therefore called upon to convene a press
conference and to retract and withdraw your aforesaid
statement. You are also called upon to forthwith tender an
unconditional public apology," the notice served on Dikshit
