"I have not received any (show cause) letter. I would have certainly replied had I received such a letter. I did not get any chance to express my views," Ghosh said reacting to his suspension.

Stating that Mamata Banerjee was his leader, Ghosh said that he has requested the party to form an inquiry commission. "I wanted the party to call me. I was willing to state my views. But verdict was given even before the trial," he said.

Meanwhile, another TMC MP Somen Mitra, husband of rebel Trinamool MLA Shikha Mitra, said that it would be known why Ghosh was suspended after he received the suspension letter.

Mitra said he was hearing about the suspension of his wife for the last one year, but she had not received any letter till now.

Ghosh's suspension for "anti-party activities" came barely a week after he, alongwith two other MPs Satabdi Roy and Tapas Pal, were served show-cause notices after they launched an attack on the party leadership while sharing a dais with suspended party legislator Sikha Mitra at a programme in Kolkata recently.

Ghosh, who also threatened to "reveal many things" if he was arrested in the Saradha case, has alleged that he was being made a sacrificial lamb.
