"Paul is heard repeatedly warning his opponents and threatening them with dire consequences."
Kolkata, June 30 - The Trinamool Congress Monday sought an explanation from its parliamentarian Tapas Paul for threatening to shoot down CPI-M men and unleashing his 'boys' to rape women.

Tapas Paul has been asked to provide a written explanation to the party in the next 48 hours (two days) about what is his point of view, the party's national spokesperson Derek O'Brien said.

Telecast by vernacular news channels, a video showed Paul from Krishnanagar Lok Sabha constituency in Nadia district, warning Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) men to be aware of him as he won't spare them and destroy their entire clan.

If a CPI-M man dares to touch anybody, Tapas Paul will not spare him. I will take out my gun and shoot him. I always carry a gun... I will destroy his entire clan, Paul was heard telling his party workers in Choumaha village.

I warn my opponents... If anything happens to my mothers or sisters, my party workers, I will not spare them, I will have the last word. I will make their family pay dearly. I will ask my boys to go there. They will rape them and leave, said Paul, as his supporters cheered his every word.

Paul is heard repeatedly warning his opponents and threatening them with dire consequences.

The comments have been widely slammed and the Congress, BJP and CPI-M have demanded stern action against him, including sacking him from parliament.
