Summary: (Express Photo) West Bengal BJP leader Mukul Roy on Tuesday met Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi at Raj Bhawan to apprise him of the controversy over the ownership of the "Biswa Bangla" logo.

Senior officials of the West Bengal government have already refuted Mr. Roy's allegations by stating that "Biswa Bangla" was wholly owned by the State government.

Mr Sinha had also said that when the government had approached the registry of trade marks, the authorities had said that two other applications were also submitted for it. Roy went on to allege that Mamata's nephew has also secured the registration of Jago Bangla trademark, under which the Trinamool Congress publishes its mouthpiece. Mr Sinha had said that Mamata Banerjee had created the Biswa Bangla logo and transferred it to the state government. "Any department of the state government can use it". "If anyone claims that it (Biswa Bangla) is a private company, it is wrong. The paid up capital is fully financed by the Department of MSME and Textiles".

But, Roy has only upped his ante. "The application of the government of West Bengal is shown as pending/abandoned", Roy has written in his letter, which he has also copied to Jitendra Singh, Union Minister of State for Department of Personnel and Training, seeking inquiry against the two bureaucrats under the All Indian Services Conduct Rules.

Trinamool Congress MP and the president of party's youth wing Abhishek Banerjee on Monday sent a legal notice to the party's former leader Mukul Roy for making "malicious and defamatory" statements against him, and demanded an unconditional apology within 48 hours.
