Mukul Roy alleges Trinamool Congress slogan is owned by Abhishek Banerjee
Nov 13 2017 by Desiree Burns
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's nephew Abhishek on Monday sent a defamation notice to the state's newest BJP member Mukul Roy after the later leveled corruption allegations against him. They had made it clear that the government owned the trademark rights of the Biswa Bangla brand for running stores and showrooms whereas Roy claimed the rights of publication and advertisement of the Biswa Bangla logo was with Trinamool MP Abhishek Banerjee. He had also said that the All India Trinamool Youth Congress national president owned the party's mouthpiece Jago Bangla. Subhrangshu is the TMC MLA from Bijpur in North 24 Parganas and after Mukul's defection he had maintained that Mukul was his father, but Mamata Banerjee was his leader.
"Can you imagine the slogan of a party being owned by an individual?"
Mr. Roy, who recently shifted loyalties from the TMC to the BJP, produced a certificate of registration of trademark in the name of Mr. Banerjee. It is widely known now that the reason of the fissure between Mamata Banerjee and her long term aide Mukul Roy has been Abhishek Banerjee.
