MLA Prabir Ghosal quits TMC posts after show-cause notice issued to him
TMC MLA from Uttarpara, Prabir Ghosal, on Wednesday (January 27) announced that he was resigning as district core committee member and spokesperson of the party’s Hooghly unit.
Prabir Ghosal took this decision a day after he was issued a show-cause notice by the party for making anti-party remarks.
However, Prabir Ghosal said that he would continue to remain an MLA. Ghosal said, “I have been forced to take this decision as there is an active lobby in the party that is not allowing me to do my work in my constituency. I will still continue to be MLA keeping in mind the needs of people.”
Prabir Ghosal also alleged that a conspiracy is being made by some party members to defeat him in the upcoming assembly polls "if I contest again from the Uttarpara seat".
According to party sources, Ghosal was issued a show-cause notice on Tuesday (January 26) for allegedly sharing internal affairs of the party with the media.
Ghoshal, however, said that he did not receive any show-cause notice from the party.
Meanwhile, state BJP vice-president and Barrackpore MP Arjun Singh praised Ghosal, saying “ the veteran journalist is a good person”.
