Kolkata: Even as the controversy surrounding his rape remarks continues to rage, yet another video tape has surfaced showing Trinamool Congress MP Tapas Paul exhorting his partymen to kill CPI-M workers.
On a day when Paul tendered an apology after being caught on tape threatening to "gun down CPI-M men and let loose his boys to rape their woman, a new video has come up which shows him abusing Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) activists and asking his party workers to slit their rivals' throats.
"Men who kill others are not humans. Till I am here, I will request don't spare any CPI-M worker. Our men will kill them. I am also asking the women to slit open CPI-M worker's throats," says Paul in the video telecast by a news channel.
In the entire video Paul is seen inciting people to unleash violence on the rivals.
"If a CPI-M man dares to touch anybody, I will take out my gun and shoot him. I always carry a gun... I will destroy his entire clana I warn my opponents... I will make their family pay dearly. I will ask my boys to go there. They will rape them and leave," Paul had said in the first video that has now gone viral.
With political leaders, eminent personalities and activists baying for his blood and the National Commission for Women (NCW) writing to the president and prime minister seeking his expulsion from parliament, the Lok Sabha member, in a letter addressed to his party and the media, sought to tender an apology terming his comments a "gross error of judgment" and "deeply insensitive".
