BJP's Amit Malviya Hits Back at 'Slanderous' Allegations Amid Legal Battle

Amit Malviya, BJP's IT cell chief and co-in-charge of Bengal, dismisses allegations by lawyer Santanu Sinha as a TMC tactic to oust him from Bengal. Malviya plans to file a defamation case against Sinha while urging Mamata Banerjee to address legitimate concerns instead. Sinha, however, stands by his statements.

Amit Malviya, the chief of BJP's IT cell, emphatically denied on Thursday allegations made by Kolkata-based lawyer Santanu Sinha, labeling the claims as a calculated move by the TMC to push him out of Bengal—a mission he insists will fail.

In a decisive counteraction, Malviya, who also co-manages the party's Bengal affairs, announced plans to initiate a criminal defamation suit against Sinha. The lawyer allegedly posted defamatory comments targeting him on social media. Malviya called on West Bengal's Chief Minister and TMC leader Mamata Banerjee to address issues surrounding Sandeshkhali through proper avenues rather than resorting to slander.

Speaking firmly, Malviya posted on social media, ''Mamata Banerjee must find other legitimate means to wipe the taint of #Sandeshkhali instead of using fringe elements to fling muck on me. Such attempts to keep me out of Bengal won't work.'' Meanwhile, Sinha, a leader of Hindu Samhati, maintained his stance and expressed readiness for a legal battle.
