Kolkata (West Bengal) [India], June 24 (ANI): West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee condoled the demise of TMC MLA Tamonash Ghosh, who died of cardiac arrest on Wednesday.
"Very, very sad. Tamonash Ghosh, 3-time MLA from Falta & party treasurer since 1998 had to leave us today. Been with us for over 35 years, he was dedicated to the cause of the people and party. He contributed much through his social work," Mamata tweeted.
