Roy had on Friday alleged that West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's "Biswa Bangla" was nothing but a company owned by her nephew Abhishek Banerjee.

"Biswa Bangla, sponsor of the recent Under-17 FIFA World Cup, is owned by Abhishek Banerjee", Roy had alleged at his first public rally in Kolkata since he joined the BJP.

On the heels of expelled Trinamool Congress leader Mukul Roy's allegations, TMC Youth leader Abhishek Banerjee has sent a legal notice to Roy demanding an unconditional apology within 48 hours, failing which legal action would be taken against him. The notice demanded an unconditional apology from Roy within 48 hours failing which civil and criminal defamation suits would be filed against Roy.

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

People of West Bengal can easily identify a political opportunist, said West Bengal Minister of state for Health Chandrima Bhattacharya.

In connection with reports of multiple applications for trademark registration of the "Biswa Bangla" logo, State Additional Chief Secretary Rajiva Sinha said CJ Associates, on behalf of Abhishek Banerjee, had withdrawn its application and this had been accepted by the Registrar of Trade Marks.

The BJP's Mukul Roy today said he would move court on Friday against the West Bengal government for allegedly tapping his phones.

The TMC's Youth Wing organised a protest rally in the city on Monday to counter Roy's allegations.

Roy, who sent a letter to two senior officers of the state government for making "incorrect statements", said he was ready to face the legal battle on the subject.
