"They are threatening us with a defamation suit. The day they file a defamation suit, we will do the same against them for stopping to a new low and for making personal attacks. We will also file a complaint against them," West Bengal BJP president Rahul Sinha said.

Sinha also demanded that the Trinamool Congress publish a white paper on the buyers of paintings by the TMC supremo and on the Saradha chit fund scam.

"The people want an answer. They can't evade questions for long," Sinha said.

The BJP Prime Ministerial candidate at a rally at Serampore on Sunday had asked about the identity of a person who had allegedly bought a painting of the TMC chief at Rs 1.80 crore.

TMC on Monday had demanded a public apology by Modi for his comments or face a defamation suit.
