Cash-For-Query-Row: Trinamool Congress leader and Lok Sabha MP Mahua Moitra has now directly attacked the Ethics Committee of Parliament in the cash for query case. MP Moitra has alleged that the Ethics Committee of the Lok Sabha investigating the matter is no less than a kangaroo court. His tweet comes a day after the Ethics Committee recommended his expulsion from the House in the cash-for-queries case.
She posted on X and said – Kangaroo Court
TMC MP Mahua Moitra tweeted that she is proud to be the first person in parliamentary history to be unethically expelled by the Ethics Committee, whose mandate does not include expulsion. First expel and then ask the government to ask CBI to find the evidence. Kangaroo Court is a bummer from start to finish. Along with this, the MP also claimed that due to the allegations leveled against him by Bharatiya Janata Party and its MP Nishikant Dubey, he will win from Krishnanagar parliamentary constituency in 2024 with a big margin.
The draft against Mahua Moitra was adopted by a margin of 6-4.
The committee, headed by BJP Lok Sabha member Vinod Kumar Sonkar, met in New Delhi and adopted its 479-page report, which, according to reports, recommended Moitra’s removal. This was the first such action by the committee against an MP. Committee head Vinod Sonkar said that six members showed support while four opposed it. Aparajita Sarangi, Rajdeep Roy, Sumedhanand Saraswati, Preneet Kaur, Vinod Sonkar and Hemant Godse supported the report, while Danish Ali, V Vaithilingam, PR Natarajan, Giridhari Yadav opposed it.
It was said that Mahua Moitra had taken money, goods and many other facilities from industrialist Darshan Hiranandani. With whom the password and login details were also shared. It also said that out of 61 questions asked by Moitra in Parliament, 50 sought information with the intention of protecting or maintaining Hiranandani’s business interests.
