It has been reported that the panel has suggested Mahua Moitra’s removal from the Lok Sabha.
The lower house of Parliament received a report from the Lok Sabha’s Ethics Committee on Friday regarding the cash-for-query allegations made against Mahua Moitra, a member of the Trinamool Congress. The report was presented by BJP MO Vijay Sonkar, the head of the panel, which caused a commotion and forced a two-hour adjournment of the house.
The opposition members of parliament asserted that Mahua Moitra’s disqualification motion might be presented on the house floor today.
The motion faces opposition from Congress. Parliament is being attacked by this. Congress leader Manickam Tagore claimed that there is a plot to disqualify a legislator through the ethics panel when an MP raises a question about a corporation.
RSP leader NK Premachandran stated that the opposition would question why Hiranandani, who allegedly paid bribes to Moitra, was not questioned by the panel.
Sudip Bandyopadhyay, a Trinamool MP, has written a letter demanding that parliamentarians be given 48 hours to review the report.
The panel reportedly suggested Moitra’s removal from the Lok Sabha due to the accusation that she used her parliamentary portal to ask questions of businessman Darshan Hiranandani in exchange for bribes.
Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, a Congress MP, charged that the BJP administration was engaging in “revenge politics”.
The problem has existed for a while. The country is receiving the incorrect message as a result. Why does our government engage in political retaliation? Although PM Modi speaks effectively, I fail to see why there is such a stark contrast between his words and deeds. Why was this such a grave error that it required a house suspension? Can’t they ask her in front of everyone in the house? He claimed that it seemed to be a dictatorship.
Karti Chidambaram, a Congress MP, called the report a “misadventure” by the government.
All I can say if they take these misadventures is that they will give Mahua an additional 50,000 votes when he runs for office again in 2024. It has not seemed like a fair and equitable process, in my opinion. We desire that she stay in Parliament. This is just another attempt by the BJP, which uses this tactic regularly to muzzle critics. He stated, Of course, we are against it. In November, Mahua Moitra made an appearance before the panel. But she accused Sonkar of asking unethical questions, so the meeting turned into a slogfest. Sonkar afterward claimed that she had spoken against him and that the panel was unparliamentary.
