Referring to the clause in the poll code, the TMC emphasizes the need for immediate action against Ghosh for his remarks, which are deemed offensive and derogatory.

The party asserts that such comments not only lack decency but also perpetuate misogyny and disrespect towards women in positions of authority.

The BJP leader’s statements have elicited sharp criticism from TMC leaders, with Kirti Azad condemning them as demeaning to women and suggesting legal action under the POCSO Act.

Bengal minister Shashi Panja echoes the sentiment, emphasizing the necessity of defeating individuals like Ghosh in the upcoming elections.
