A legal notice has been sent to Congress’ National Coordinator for social media Gaurav Pandhi by renowned folk singer Malini Awasthi for defaming her husband Awanish Awasthi, who is an IAS officer and currently serving as that UP Additional Chief Secretary.

The singer took to microblogging site Twitter on Wednesday to inform about it.

“I have sent a legal notice. He should either unconditionally apologise or I am going to the court. He should be facing. I have written that truth should prevail. I want to see what their reaction is. I want the world to see that a party which talks about women empowerment- this is what they actually think about women,” she said.

Earlier, Malini has slammed Gaurav Pandhi over the allegations levelled against her and warned him of legal action if he fails to provide evidence for those allegations.

“You have run out of arrows in your quiver of dirty politics by maligning a woman who has worked hard for 48 years,” she said on Twitter.

अपनी इस बात का प्रमाण दो या फिर वैधानिक कार्यवाही के लिये तैयार रहो @GauravPandhi एक स्त्री के 48 वर्षों के परिश्रम को दुर्भावना से देखने वाले,तुम्हारी घिनौनी राजनीति के तरकश में तीर कम पड़ गए तो इस नीचता पर उतर आए?मेरे पति के चरित्र व ईमानदारी की मिसाल पूरे प्रदेश में दी जाती है https://t.co/XGxQnhSOQk

Her reaction came shortly after Pandhi posted a tweet on Tuesday alleged that UP Additional Chief Secretary Awanish Awasthi was acting like a BJP member because his wife Malini Awasthi was earning crores of rupees by conducting hundreds of shows for the UP government. 

“UP Addl Chief Secretary @AwasthiAwanishK is behaving like BJP’s Shakhaboy, against poor migrant workers. Is it because his wife Malini Awasthi does hundreds of shows for UP Govt and hence earning crores from BJP Govt? Their bank account statements won’t be surprising at all!,” Pandhi had said.
