Nishikant Dubey Disputes Mahua Moitra's Version of Parliamentary Ethics Panel Meeting

New Delhi: Following Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra's departure from the parliamentary Ethics Panel meeting on the cash-for-query matter, BJP MP Nishikant Dubey accused her of creating her "own narrative" of the cross-examination session.

"...I and (Jai Anant) Dehadrai went there as witnesses, and Mahua Moitra went as an accused. However, she gave interviews and quoted what happened inside the committee of ethics. She tried to set up a wrong narrative in public. What happened today is the darkest day of parliamentary history...," stated BJP MP Nishikant Dubey.

Jai Dehadrai, a Supreme Court lawyer, reportedly claimed to possess "irrefutable" evidence of bribes being given to Moitra, as per Nishikant Dubey's statements.

These remarks came as several opposition leaders, including Moitra and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) MP Danish Ali, walked out of the Parliament Ethics Committee meeting on Thursday. The meeting was related to cash-for-query charges against Moitra, who serves as the Lok Sabha MP representing West Bengal's Krishnanagar.

BJP MP Dubey, who had initiated the charges against Moitra, had alleged having irrefutable evidence to prove that Moitra had breached parliamentary protocols. He now refutes Moitra's claims that the panel posed "filthy and undignified" questions during her cross-examination.

The cash-for-query dispute escalated when Moitra left the Lok Sabha Ethics panel's meeting after being subjected to what she described as "filthy questions" during the inquiry that insinuated she had accepted a bribe of Rs 2 crore to pose questions in Parliament.

"They ask filthy questions, they are reading from a script. They are picking on anything," Mahua Moitra alleged.

BSP's Danish Ali also walked out in solidarity with Moitra, highlighting the panel's line of questioning, which he deemed intrusive and inappropriate, including inquiries about her nighttime conversations. "Raat ko kisse baat karti hai, kya baat karti hai. Yeh sab pucha (Who do you talk to at night, what do you talk about. They asked this)," Ali revealed.
