Tapas Pal and Mamata Banerjee
Kolkata, July 1: Actor-turned-politician Tapas Pal has been cornered by his infamous remark on rape. Now, the Trinamool Congress (TMC) MP sought 'Mamata' (motherly love) from his party after tendering an unconditional apology to party supremo Mamata Banerjee and other leaders.

TMC spokesperson Mukul Roy on Tuesday, July 1 informed that Pal sent one letter to the party. He said Pal apologised to Mamata and other party leaders who were hurt by his statement which maligned party image.

TMC MP Derek O'Brien, during one press conference, said, "TMC has acted with speed, alacrity and caution. Tapas Pal has offered an unconditional apology letter."

TMC asked Pal to write one letter within 48 hours with explanations for his controversial remark. TMC has, however, not committed to taking any action against its MP. Roy said that the party can't jump the gun and that a due process would be followed in this concern.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) filed a case at Nakashipara police station against Pal. Meanwhile, central government also issued showcause notice to West Bengal state chief asking for details regarding Pal's statement.

The 56-year-old MPlanded in the latest controversy following one video in which he was caught saying, "If any CPI(M) man is present here. Listen to me. If you ever touch any Trinamool Congress worker or their families at Choumaha, you have to pay for this. Don't try to act smart with me. I am smarter than you. I am not from Kolkata."

"If you insult the mothers and daughters of Trinamool workers. Then I won't spare you. I will let lose my boys in your homes and they will commit rape. I will teach each of you a lesson," Tapas Pal told.
