TMC MP Abhishek Banerjee serves legal notice to BJP leader Mukul Roy

Roy, who was one of the founding members of Trinamool Congress, had said on Friday that the party was now more of a private limited company than a political outfit and alleged that Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's "Biswa Bangla" (the name by which she brands the state) was nothing but a company owned by her nephew Abhishek Banerjee.

A day before, Bhattacharya and Sinha armed with papers showed the Bengal government, and not any individual, owned Biswa Bangla Marketing Corporation and held the copyright of the brand created by chief minister Mamata Banerjee, strongly rebutting Roy's charges.

There is no official word on whether Abhishek will speak.

Roy also claimed that all campaign material of Trinamool Congress was printed by a company Jago Bangla that is owned by Abhishek Banerjee.

The CM and Trinamool said the allegations were baseless.

Roy's legal team seemed unperturbed by the notice.

Roy marked his letter to Union minister of state Jitendra Singh, who looks into the personnel, public grievances and pensions department, saying their conduct needed to be referred to the Centre for enquiry and departmental action. Claiming that Mr. Roy had made "malicious and defamatory statements" against Ms. Banerjee at a public rally on November 10, his counsel Sanjay Basu said in the notice that the allegations were "deliberately sensationalised to defame our client". Though Subhrangshu Roy disagreed with his father's joining the BJP and swore by Mamata Banerjee, he stayed away from the meeting.

TMC MLA Arjun Singh challenged Roy to contest in the municipal election reacting to Roy's earlier statement that he has his men in all 77,000 booths in the state. "Its paid-up capital was paid by the state MSME (Micro, Small, Medium Enterprise) and Textiles Department", Additional Chief Secretary Rajiva Sinha told reporters at the state Secretariat Nabanna.

"If anyone claims that it (Biswa Bangla) is a private company, it is wrong".

Mukul Roy wrote back to both Sinha and Bhattacharya alleging they broke All India Service (Conduct Rules) 1968 and stuck to his guns.

The notice stated that the remarks made by Roy in regard to "Biswa Bangla" and "Jago Bangla" are false.
