On Friday, Trinamul leaders filed a police complaint against PM and National Highway Authority of India. The leaders say their names were printed without their permission in an advertisement for a highway project launched by Prime Minister. The advertisement read that the prime minister would lay the foundation stone in the “august presence” of seven leaders. Darjeeling MP S.S. Ahluwalia was the only BJP leader mentioned in the advertisement. The rest are all Trinamul legislators.
The chairman of the Siliguri-Jalpaiguri Development Authority and the MLA of Alipurduar said, “The advertisement mentioned me as a guest without any consent. This has defamed me, following which I have filed a complaint at Alipurduar police station against the prime minister and the NHAI for necessary investigation”.
Jalpaiguri MP Bijay Chandra Burman, Alipurduar MP Dasrath Tirkey and the Mainaguri MLA also participated in the procession and then filed their police complaints.
