Kolkata, Jan 14 (IBNS) BJP leader Siddharth Nath Singh has sent legal notices to two MPs of the ruling Trinamool Congress in West Bengal for their alleged defamatory statements about his grandfather, the late Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri.

Singh, who is the party's in-charge for West Bengal, has demanded Rs. 10 crore each from Kalyan Banerjee and Abhishek Banerjee, both members of the Lok Sabha.

"Your comments have been made purposefully with an intention to cause an imputation to Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri...and your said actions have caused hurt and distress not only to my client but to the entire Shastri family," the legal notices say.

The two Trinamool leaders have been given two weeks' time for tendering  public apology and pay the compensatory amount, failing which civil and criminal proceedings will be initiated.

Abhishek Banerjee, who is the President of All India Trinamool Yuva and a nephew of  West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, made a remark against Singh at a public rally in Kolkata on December 1, while Kalyan Banerjee's controversial remark came at a meeting in Hooghly district on December 7.

Kalyan Banerjee had earlier made a comment against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and later apologized for it in Parliament.
