Shaken to know BJP planning criminal cases against me: Mahua Moitratext_fields
Kolkata: Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra, who recently appeared before the Lok Sabha Ethics Committee in connection with the cash-for-query row, on Sunday claimed that she is shaken to know that BJP is "planning" a criminal case against her.
She said that Central agencies like the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Enforcement Directorate (ED) should first start probing the Adani Group's alleged involvement in a Rs 13,000 crore coal scam.
"Shaking in my skin to know the BJP is planning criminal cases against me. Welcome them - only know that CBI and ED need to file FIR against Adani for Rs13,000 crore coal scam before they question how many pairs of shoes I have," Moitra claimed in a message posted on X.
She also said that she had an exact transcript of the record in Ethics Committee verbatim that shows the "cheap" and "irrelevant" questions she faced there.
"Also, BJP - before you push out women MPs with fake narrative remember I have EXACT transcript of record in Ethics Committee verbatim. Chairman’s cheap sordid irrelevant questions, Opposition’s protests, my protests - all there in official black & white. Besharam & Behuda," her post read.
Hours after facing questioning by the Ethics Committee of the Parliament and staging a walkout from there on Thursday, Moitra shot off a letter to Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla, describing the session as a proverbial "Vastraharan".
"I write to you in great anguish today to update you on the unethical, sordid and prejudiced behaviour meted out to me at the hearing of the Ethics Committee by the Chairman. I have been subjected to the proverbial 'vastraharan' by him in the presence of all members of the Committee," the opening lines of Moitra’s letter to the Lok Sabha speaker read.
