Trinamool MP Kunal Ghosh, who has angered his party leadership by attending a function of a dissident leader, again riled his party on Monday by making allegations against two ministers in the West Bengal government.

Ghosh alleged agriculture minister Malay Ghatak was threatening the financiers of a newspaper which he heads and wondered how Manish Gupta, another minister who was home secretary when the police killed 13 Youth Congress activists on July 21, 1993, is holding a portfolio.

He also said a senior Trinamool minister had asked for `4 crore from Saradha boss Sudipto Sen, now in police custody.

Ghosh had come to testify before a judicial commission formed to inquire the 1993 deaths.

On Friday Ghosh had attended a blood-donation camp organised by MP Somen Mitra, whose relationship with Trinamool chief and chief minister Mamata Banerjee is on the stiff side.
