New Delhi: The BJP MP Nishikant Dubey and advocate Jai Anand Dehadrai have been called up by the Lok Sabha ethics committee for a hearing on October 26 in connection with their “cash for query” allegations against Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra.
Dubey has complained before the ethics committee that
Moitra “took bribes to ask questions” in parliament on behalf of businessman Darshan Hiranandani to target the Adani group and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
In a letter to Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla, the BJP MP has accused the Trinamool MP of breach of parliamentary privilege, contempt of House and criminal conspiracy.
Ms Moitra has denied the allegations and said she is prepared for any inquiry. The Hiranandani Group, too, has trashed the allegations.
The Hiranandani Group lost energy and infra contracts to Adani Group and Ms Moitra’s questions were directed at perpetuating the Hiranandani Group’s interests, Mr Dubey indicated in the letter to the Speaker.
