What is cash-for-query issue?
Let us tell you that BJP MP Nishikant Dubey had last month accused TMC leader Mahua Moitra of asking questions in Parliament in exchange for cash and gifts. He had claimed that bribes were exchanged between Mahua Moitra and businessman Darshan Hiranandani. Dubey had cited lawyer Jai Ananth Dehadrai’s letter, which mentioned alleged exchanges between Moitra and Hiranandani.
However, Mahua Moitra has denied all these allegations. He had also sent a legal notice to BJP MPs Nishikant Dubey and Jai Ananth Dehadrai. He had said that all these allegations are derogatory, wrong and baseless. The Ethics Committee was investigating this matter only.
