Rinku sends notice to Channi over defamatory remarks

In a conversation with the media, Rinku said, "I joined the BJP due to some reasons. In the General Election, Channi was my rival candidate from the Congress. He had made allegations against me and I against him. But after Channi’s win, I congratulated him, and the matter ended. But during the campaign, Channi again alleged that I was involved in gambling, lottery, and drugs business. The allegations have hurt me, my family, and my relatives".

Rinku sends notice to Channi over defamatory remarks

BJP's Sushil Rinku and Congress MP Charanjit Singh Channi.


BJP leader Sushil Rinku has sought Rs 5 crore in damages from former Chief Minister and Congress MP Charanjit Singh Channi, accusing him of tarnishing his image with false allegations.

 

Rinku's advocate served a legal notice to Channi, alleging that the former CM had made baseless accusations of involvement in drug peddling, lottery trade, gambling, robbery, theft, and snatching during a campaign meeting for the Jalandhar West bypoll.

 

The notice claims that Rinku has never been involved in such activities and has no criminal record, making Channi's allegations entirely false and defamatory.

 

In a conversation with the media, Rinku said, "I joined the BJP due to some reasons. In the General Election, Channi was my rival candidate from the Congress. He had made allegations against me and I against him. But after Channi’s win, I congratulated him, and the matter ended. But during the campaign, Channi again alleged that I was involved in gambling, lottery, and drugs business. The allegations have hurt me, my family, and my relatives".

 

"He has made these allegations without any proof. When he was the CM, he praised me as an MLA. Now, his thinking has changed. I’ve sent a legal notice to him and will take the case to its logical end," said Rinku, as he played Channi's audio clip.

 

Channi has responded to the notice, saying it is Rinku's legal right to take action and he will respond accordingly.

 

The legal notice is a result of the escalating political tensions between the two leaders, with Rinku seeking legal recourse to protect his reputation.

 

The legal notice served on Channi, states, "In that meeting (campaign meeting for Jalandhar West bypoll), while making a statement to media persons, you (Channi) raised serious allegations against my client that he had been engaged in drug peddling, lottery trade, gambling, robbing, theft, and snatching. The allegations are absolutely false, baseless, and without any evidence as neither Rinku was involved in such activities, nor has he been booked for such crimes".
