Smriti Irani Sends Legal Notice to Congress over Allegations against Daughter


NEW DELHI – Union Minister Smriti Irani on Sunday sent legal notice to the Congress and its senior leaders Pawan Khera, Jairam Ramesh, Netta D’Souza over their “malicious allegations” against her daughter and asked them to tender a written unconditional apology.

She also asked them to withdraw the allegations they have made against her 18-year old daughter with immediate effect.

The notice, sent through her lawyer, said that these allegations have been made with the knowledge of their falsity, or at least in careless disregard of the truth.

“Cease and desist from disseminating any content whatsoever, arising out of or in any connection with the allegations and/or similar content thereto in respect of our client and her daughter, Zoish Irani. Ensure that all the record of the allegations is permanently deleted and the same is never disseminated re-circulated in future,” the legal notice read.

In case of failure to act as mentioned above, Irani would be constrained to initiate appropriate civil and criminal proceedings against them, the notice warned.

On Saturday, the Congress had in a press conference alleged that restaurant ‘Silly Souls Cafe and Bar’ run by Irani’s daughter in Goa, got its excise licence fraudulently.

Irani termed the allegations “malicious”. -IANS
