November 19 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party National Executive Committee member Anirban Ganguly (/topic/anirban-ganguly) has sent a legal notice to filmmaker Aparna Sen (/topic/aparna-sen) seeking unconditional apology for allegedly calling BSF (/topic/bsf) personnel “murderers” and “rapists”.
“I have issued a notice through my lawyer to Smt Aparna Sen (/topic/aparna-sen) asking her to issue an unconditional apology for terming the @BSF (/topic/bsf)_India a force which indulges in “rape” & “murder”. Her behaviour is obnoxious, toxic, vicious & disgusting. She speaks the language of India’s enemies,” tweeted the BJP leader on Thursday.
Earlier, BJP leader Suvendu Adhikari (/topic/suvendu-adhikari) on Thursday visited the headquarters of the Border Security Force (BSF (/topic/bsf))’s South Bengal Frontier in Kolkata (/topic/kolkata) to apologise to the security force officers for the alleged derogatory language used by Trinamool Congress MLAs against the personnel.
Adhikari visited the BSF (/topic/bsf) headquarters in Kolkata (/topic/kolkata) along with other 65 BJP MLAs today.
Speaking to ANI, “Adhikari said, “Some TMC MLAs used abusive languages for BSF (/topic/bsf) in the Assembly. So we havecome here to apologize to BSF (/topic/bsf) officers and thank them for their national service.”
“The notification issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs on October 11 to extend the BSF (/topic/bsf) jurisdiction is good news for West Bengal (/topic/west-bengal). The BSF (/topic/bsf) always do sacrifices for the nation and protect the people,”he said.
