” Our customer is neither an owner nor operating the eatery called Silly Souls Goa. likewise she has not entered any show cause notice from any authority whatsoever as contended,” Nagra said.
” My customer, a youthful eighteen time old pupil and a budding cook who has worked in colourful caffs to learn culinary trades, is sought to be scarred in infinity by her mama ‘s political opponents who with oblique and ulterior motive seek to calumniate her,” Nagra said.
” These political opponents have levelled colourful unwarranted charges and cooked allegations against our customer. It’s unfortunate that they’ve resorted to spreading a false propaganda only to minimise a non issue without catching on true data and with a destined ideal of defaming our customer for solely being the son of a political leader,” Nagra said in the statement Congress claims evidence
