"Its paid-up capital was paid by the state MSME (Micro, Small, Medium Enterprise) and Textiles Department", Additional Chief Secretary Rajiva Sinha told reporters at the state Secretariat Nabanna. Along with this Roy also claimed that the "Jago Bangla" newspaper, the mouthpiece of the TMC was also owned by Abhishek Banerjee.

Three days after BJP leader Mukul Roy alleged that West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee's nephew and Trinamool Congress MP Abhishek Banerjee owns the Biswa Bangla brand, the MP sent a legal notice to Roy on Monday demanding unconditional apology at a press conference.

The BJPs Mukul Roy today said he would move court on Friday against the West Bengal government for allegedly tapping his phones. "If anyone claims that the Biswa Bangla Marketing Corporation is a private company, it is totally false". She is creator of the logo and we are the user.

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

They are confident of securing a deal with the possibility of signing Herrera on a pre-contractual agreement in January. The player's reluctance to sign a new contract has encouraged Atletico to ramp up their efforts to push for a deal.

Sinha said when the government had approached the registry of trade marks, the authorities had said that two other applications were also submitted for it. "I heard of that the legal notice would be served to me".

The controversy over Biswa Bangla brand owned by Biswa Bangla Marketing Corporation has generated a lot of heat in the state since November 10 when Roy alleged that the brand aggressively promoted by the Mamata Banerjee administration is actually owned by Abhishek Banerjee.

He also reiterated: "It is a government company and rights to the logo have been transferred to the company".

"Since most of the time I am in Delhi, I felt I must change my voter I-card and become a voter from Delhi", Roy said. "Let the notice come, we will face the legal battle", he said. However, Roy said he would respond later.
