Derek O’Brien did not answer when asked if the controversial MP was present.
Banerjee had yesterday described Tapas Paul’s hate speech as a “big blunder”, but wondered if she should “kill him” for this and said whatever steps are needed to be taken have been taken.
“It is not just a mistake, it’s big blunder. We have taken whatever steps that are needed to be taken. It is an individual utterance. What do you want? Should I kill him? What can I do ? Whatever I can do we can do it through our policy”, Banerjee had said.
Tapas Paul, also an actor, had tendered unconditional apology for his threat to kill CPI-M workers and having their women raped after he was asked by an embarrassed party leadership to do so following widespread outrage.
