Shocking revelations in Parliament – Is TMC’s Mahua Moitra facing expulsion?

TAGS

The Indian Parliament is rocked by sensational allegations against Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra. The Ethics Committee has recommended her expulsion, citing “serious misdemeanours” involving accepting gifts, such as luxury items and the use of a car, from businessman Darshan Hiranandani. These allegations include Moitra allegedly taking ₹ 2 crore in cash to ask questions critical of the Narendra Modi government in Parliament.

Ethics Committee’s Damning Report and Recommendations

The 500-page report, which caused a stir in the Lok Sabha, quoted Mr. Hiranandani’s statement detailing his demands and favors for Moitra. The committee declared that the allegations of accepting illegal gratification were “undeniable” and amounted to unethical conduct unbecoming of an MP. The report unequivocally recommends Moitra’s expulsion and calls for a legal institutional inquiry by the government.
