Kolkata: Within a day after a TV news channel`s footage showed Trinamool Congress MP Tapas Pal threatening to send his men to rape Opposition party women, another video of him inciting partymen to kill CPI(M) workers has gone viral on Tuesday.
In the recent video, Pal is seen addressing his party workers and inciting them to slit the throats of CPI(M) members with knives.
He further added that their mothers must have slept with dogs to have given birth to them.
The previous video showed Pal addressing a gathering in his Krishnanagar constituency and telling his workers that if anyone from the Opposition dares to touch any woman then he will send his boys and get women of CPI(M) raped.
However, after his disgraceful remarks stoked a huge controversy, Pal tendered an unconditional apology today, stating that his remarks were insensitive.
In his letter marked to chairperson, AITC and the media among others, Pal said that he had let down his constituents and the people of Bengal. “I have let down my party, the Trinamool Congress, and my political colleagues, I have let down my family, including my wife and children and my parents, and my friends. I apologise to all of them,” he said.
On the other hand, the Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee has also accepted that Pal had committed a big blunder and he apologised under her instruction.
However, when asked about the action she would take against him, she said that she can`t kill him for whatever he had said.
