Siliguri, 18th September: MLA Shankar Ghosh held a press conference on Saturday surrounding the recent conflict inside the vaccination center in front of Tarun Tirtha Club in Bharatnagar.
During the conference, Ghosh said "If I abuse a woman and if it is proven, I will resign from my post. This incident should be investigated once again." He further said that he is ready for whatever cooperation is needed on his part to bring out the truth of this incident. Meanwhile, the woman who had lodged a written complaint against the MLA is unwilling to address the media over this issue.
