KOLKATA: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's nephew Abhishek on Monday sent a defamation notice to the state's newest BJP member Mukul Roy after the later leveled corruption allegations against him.
Mukul Roy alleged that 'Biswas Bangla' was actually a business entity owned by Abhishek Banerjee.
Following the allegations, the Trinamool Congress (TMC) declared that they will arrange a rally to counter Roy where one of the key speakers will be Roy's son.
The TMC-turned-BJP leader's son Subhrangshu who is also a party MLA would be trying to send out is that Mukul, who had been promising a change in Bengal, was unable to convince his own son to join BJP. Subhrangshu is the TMC MLA from Bijpur in North 24 Parganas and after Mukul’s defection he had maintained that Mukul was his father, but Mamata Banerjee was his leader.
In another development, Mukul had written a letter to West Bengal Home secretary Atri Bhattacharya and principal secretary, mirco, small and medium enterprises Rajiva Sinha for defending Mamata and Abhishek over the allegations he had leveled against them.
