Kolkata: Trinamool Congress leader and nephew of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, Abhishek Banerjee on Saturday sent a defamation notice to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the alleged derogatory remarks made against him at a public rally on May 15 in Diamond Harbour. ‘Your speech, punctuated by false, malicious, and defamatory content, was an embodiment of political calculation and mischievous intent.

Your imputations were deliberate and mala fide, perpetrated through thinly-veiled references of ‘Bhatija’ (nephew) and ‘Didi’ while being fully aware that Mamata Banerjee is referred to as ‘Didi’ and my client himself is the only nephew of the said Banerjee who is involved in public life and is the sitting MP from Diamond Harbour,’ read the letter from Abhishek Banerjee’s lawyer Sanjay Basu.
