Kolkata
20 Mar 2017

Babul Supriyo, union minister and BJP MP from Bengal said that he would have readily apologised to Trinamool Congress MLA Mahua Moitra if she had personally expressed that she felt insulted by his remarks on a television channel debate. Supriyo’s statement came on a day the Calcutta High Court ordered a stay on criminal proceedings against him.“I approached the high court because it was too much of her to file a police complaint and for the police to submit a charge sheet against me for making a remark during a debate on a national TV channel. Had she expressed her grievances to me personally, I would have readily apologised,” Supriyo said speaking to media on Monday.
