Suspended Trinamool Congress MP Kunal Ghosh, who was arrested in connection with the Saradha chit fund scam and is now on bail, has been offered a position in the advisory committee of the Telecom department’s Kolkata circle, according to Sambad Pratidin – the Bengali daily in which Ghosh worked in a senior editorial capacity.

The newspaper said that Kunal received the offer letter for his new job on Friday. The news could not be independently confirmed by Observe24x7.

Sources close to him, however, claimed Kunal would soon join his new job and he was moving ever closer to the BJP at a time Trinamool’s relationship with the BJP was at its worst.

Kunal was granted regular bail on Friday by the Calcutta High Court, three months after he was given interim bail. A division bench of justices Ashim Kumar Roy and M M Banerjee granted the bail to Ghosh on a prayer by the Rajya Sabha MP.
