BJP's Mukul Roy today moved the Delhi High Court against the Centre and the West Bengal government over his phone allegedly being tapped.
Roy had recently quit the TMC, following differences with its supremo and CM Mamata Banerjee, and joined the saffron party but her nephew said he had made 'false' statements against him.
Roy had claimed at a public meeting earlier this month that Biswa Bangla is not a government entity but a private company owned by Abhishek Banerjee, nephew of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
Roy said the TMC government was "suppressing and pressuring every constitutional body" and that is why he has opted to for the voter card to oppose the West Bengal regime.
Abhishek Banerjee served legal notice on Roy for making malicious and defamatory statements against him and demanded an unconditional apology within 48 hours.
West Bengal government today iterated that the Biswa Bangla Marketing Corporation is totally owned by it and is not a private entity.
Kicking back at the party he quit this week, Roy said Mamata is no longer the same person whom he knew while fighting the Left Front.
