Cash-for-query scandal: Hiranandani speaks up amidst Mahua Moitra controversy


In a sensational turn of events, businessman Darshan Hiranandani has come out in the open about the controversial affidavit that’s taken the political arena by storm. Brushing off claims made by Trinamool Congress (TMC) MP Mahua Moitra that he was under duress, Hiranandani bared it all in an electrifying interview with Times Now’s Navika Kumar. Why the sudden revelation? He felt compelled as the allegations directly pinpointed him.

The Shocking Admissions

The details are staggering! Hiranandani admitted to accessing Mahua Moitra’s parliamentary credentials from Dubai to post questions. The gravity? This breach could spell disaster for Moitra with a potential suspension from parliament looming. “It was a grave mistake on my part, deeply embarrassing for both me and my company. But coming forward with the truth is the only way,” Hiranandani declared. He’s now officially shared the affidavit with both the Central Bureau of Investigation and the Parliamentary Ethics Committee.

Moitra’s Fiery Counter

Moitra didn’t hold back! In a riveting response to the affidavit that’s been the talk of the town, she took a shot at the Prime Minister’s Office, suggesting a conspiracy to coerce Hiranandani into signing. She questioned, “Who exactly did Hiranandani hand this affidavit to? The CBI or Ethics Committee haven’t called him yet!” Her posts on X, the Twitter successor, were brimming with defiance. She vehemently demanded transparency on the login details of all MPs and robustly defended the reliance on PAs, assistants, and interns for parliamentary tasks.

Intensifying Allegations and Investigations

The pot continues to boil. Nishikant Dubey, a BJP MP, has upped the ante by calling for a thorough investigation. The accusation? Mahua Moitra allegedly “accepted bribes to raise questions” in parliament. The target? The Adani group and PM Modi. Dubey has gone a step further, penning a letter to Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla, hurling charges of contempt, breach of parliamentary privilege, and conspiracy against Moitra. The Ethics Committee now holds the reins.

Moitra’s stance? She’s thrown the gauntlet down, daring any inquiry and drawing attention to other pending breaches against BJP members. The subtext of Hiranandani’s affidavit suggested Moitra’s motive was to attack PM Modi indirectly through targeting Adani Group’s head honcho, Gautam Adani.

The saga continues with more twists and turns expected. As allegations fly and defences are mounted, the nation waits with bated breath for the next explosive revelation.
