Rejecting Manjinder Singh Sirsa's claim, the Speaker has sought a written apology within seven days and has threatened to sue him for defamation if he doesn't. 

The notice that was sent to Mr Sirsa by Mr Goel's lawyer stated, "The car does not belong to my client's son. The false and defamatory allegations and statements have damaged the reputation of my client." 

Mr Sirsa represents the Rajouri Garden Assembly constituency in Delhi.
