With the Union cabinet clearing the proposal for Presidential reference for removal of Justice AK Ganguly as the head of West Bengal Human Rights Commission, the retired Supreme Court judge on Thursday said he needed some time to decide the next course of action.
"I don't want to comment now. I need some time to decide. Please give me some time, later on I will let you know," Justice Ganguly told PTI.
The Union cabinet on Thursday cleared the proposal for Presidential reference for removal of Justice A K Ganguly as head of the WBHRC.
Earlier in the day, the judge had said he has not yet 'decided' on whether to resign as the chairman of the WBHRC.
"I have not decided anything," Justice Ganguly said.
Demands for his resignation from the WBHRC have been expressed in several quarters after a three-judge Supreme Court panel indicted the judge over allegations of sexual harassment of a female law intern in December, 2012.
