Biswa Bangla wholly-owned Bengal government company: Bengal govt official

The State Government had immediately refuted the allegations regarding the Biswa Bangla stating that the company, brand and the logo "Biswa Bangla" is exclusively owned by the Government of West Bengal.

Banerjee, who sent the legal notice to Roy, has however demanded an "unconditional apology" in 48 hours.

Three days after Bharatiya Janta Party leader Mukul Roy labeled allegation against Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee's nephew Abhishek Banerjee, the political tussle between BJP and Trinamool Congress has now turned into a legal war. He had also said that the All India Trinamool Youth Congress national president owned the party's mouthpiece Jago Bangla.

Roy's legal team seemed unperturbed by the notice.

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.

That's what bothers me. "You don't want to let yourself believe, but you know, I am a victim of sexual abuse". Nassar, who worked with the US women's national gymnastics teams for more than two decades, is now in jail.

To counter Roy's claims, Trinamool Congress organised public rally on Monday and called Roy a "Gaddar" (traitor) who cheated on the party's leader Mamata Banerjee.

Last week, the government also came out in Abhishek's defence with two secretaries of the state government making public statements that the brand was owned by the government. "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. "The allegations are completely baseless", home secretary Atri Bhattacharya said soon after Roy's statement. "If anyone claims that the Biswa Bangla Marketing Corporation is a private company, it is totally false".

He also reiterated: "It is a government company and rights to the logo have been transferred to the company".

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