Tapas pal took apology

Tapas pal took apology

Trinamool Lok Sabha member Tapas pal seek apology for his rape video.

Even as politicians, rights groups and intellectuals ratcheted up the demand for the arrest and expulsion of Trinamool Congress lawmaker Tapas Paul for his rape comments, West Bengal`s ruling party Wednesday appeared to have put the matter behind it following Tapas` apology a day ago.

The Trinamool Lok Sabha member from Krishnanagar constituency in Nadia district, Tapas was caught on video tapes threatening and warning CPI-M rivals to beware of him and that he would gun them down and unleash his men to rape their women.

Repeatedly using expletives to describe CPI-M activists, Tapas even asked his partymen and women to prove themselves by slitting rivals` throats and killing them.

The Trinamool, which sought an explanation from Tapas and announced that party supremo and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will take a decision Wednesday, held a strategic meeting during the day.

Tapas, in a letter addressed to his party and the media Tuesday, sought apology terming his comments a "gross error of judgment" and "deeply insensitive".
