BJP Yuva Morcha Punjab vice-president Ashok Sareen on Sunday sent a legal notice to AAP leader Raghav Chadha demanding a written apology for his comments on the Bharatiya Janata Party. Rajya Sabha MP and Delhi Jal board Vice Chairman have created a row with his remarks on the BJP during a press conference on April 16.
While addressing a press conference Chada called BJP a 'Goondon-Lafango ki party' besides spelling BJP as 'Bharat ki Jahil Party'. In the legal notice sent under sections 499 and 500 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) Sareen has demanded a written apology from Chada within 3 days, failing which a civil and criminal complaint will be filed.
"You have falsely and maliciously lowered the reputation and created ill will against the BJP in the minds of the people of society. The utterances on your part are derogatory, defamatory and tantamount to the character assassination of the entire BJP," the legal notice to Chada read.
