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 had said.
