Mahua Moitra said this on her expulsion from Lok Sabha; Mamata Banerjee, INDIA bloc leaders, CPI (M) said this

Trinamool Congress leader Mahua Moitra expressed her expulsion from the Lok Sabha as a result of a "kangaroo court" and accused the government of weaponizing a parliamentary panel to subdue the opposition. 

Following her removal as a Lok Sabha member based on the recommendation of the Ethics Committee in the "cash-for-query" case, Moitra asserted that she was declared guilty of breaching a non-existent code of ethics, emphasizing the lack of evidence regarding any cash or gifts received.

In response to her expulsion, Moitra addressed the Modi government, stating, "If this government believed that silencing me would resolve the Adani issue, this kangaroo court has only demonstrated to India the hastiness and abuse of due process used to harass a single woman MP into submission." 

Opposition INDIA bloc leaders on Friday accused the government of doing "vendetta politics" as the Lok Sabha expelled Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra after holding her guilty of sharing her credentials with others and accepting gifts from a businessman to extend favours.

Black day:Adhir Ranjan

"It is a new black day in the new House. A new black chapter is starting today," Congress' leader in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury said.

Bahujan Samaj Party MP Danish Ali, who is a member of the ethics panel and was among those who staged a walkout protesting the nature of questions that were asked to Moitra by panel chief Vinod Kumar Sonkar, said the report was incomplete.

Vendetta politics: Mamata

TMC chief Mamata Banerjee condemned the expulsion, labeling it as vendetta politics and injustice. She expressed confidence in Moitra's victory in the battle and predicted the defeat of BJP in the next election.

The CPI(M) criticized Moitra's expulsion as a "black day" for the Parliament, attributing it to the BJP's assertive use of its majority. Sujan Chakraborty, a central committee member of CPI(M), denounced the decision as an act of "injustice" and highlighted Moitra's lack of opportunity to cross-examine the complainant, BJP Lok Sabha member Nishikant Dubey.
