Kolkata: The Bharatiya Janata Party on Monday issued a legal notice against Trinamool Congress MP and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee`s nephew Abhishek Banerjee for blaming the saffron outfit for the killing of five Bengalis in Assam`s Tinsukia and warned him of further legal action, a senior state BJP leader said.
“The Trinamool Congress is trying to confuse the people over the killing of five Bengalis in Assam. Abhishek Banerjee has directly accused the BJP and the Assam government of the killing. We have sent a legal notice to the speaker seeking his unconditional apology,” State BJP leader Mukul Roy said.
“The BJP strongly condemns the cowardly and barbaric act of killing those people, but the Bengal government and the ruling Trinamool Congress are trying to ignite tension over it. It may turn out to be dangerous for the whole nation,” he said.
