Kolkata: Trinamool MLA Tamonash Ghosh, who was tested positive for coronavirus in May, succumbed to the deadly disease on Wednesday. The 60-year-old was the MLA from South 24 Parganas.  

Tamonash — a neighbour of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee — tested positive for the virus, along with two family members and three aides, last month. 

“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 & party. He contributed much through his social work,” Mamata Banerjee tweeted.

“He has left a void that will be difficult to fill. On behalf of all of us, heartfelt condolences to his wife Jharna, his two daughters, friends and well wishers,” Banerjee said.
