Trinamool Congress minister shares fake post on Manmohan Singh

KOLKATA: The Trinamool Congress has been rocked by controversy after the party's secretary-general and state commerce and industry minister, Partha Chatterjee, shared a fake post on former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh on social media.

Chatterjee removed the message from his Facebook wall shortly after it was identified as fraudulent.

The uproar began when Chatterjee uploaded a fake message on social media about the former prime minister's death late Monday evening. Since then, the secretary of the Trinamool Congress and the party's spokesman have unleashed harsh attacks on Chatterjee without naming him. Ghosh responded to the controversy on his Facebook page about 1 a.m. on Wednesday.

I had a photograph with Dr Manmohan Singh when I was sworn in as a Rajya Sabha member in 2012. When I retired in 2018, I struck up a conversation with him while he was on the opposing bench. I've also seen him in the capacity as a former journalist. From what I learned about him, I developed a profound admiration for him. I strongly condemn individuals who spread false information regarding his death on Tuesday. I also criticise those who acted irresponsibly by sharing the same false information and spreading it farther. "I wish Dr. Manmohan Singh the best of health," Ghosh posted on Facebook.
