Moitra’s expulsion from LS: Oppn calls it ‘betrayal’ of parliamentary democracy, BJP terms it ‘apt’

New Delhi, Dec 9 (PTI) Trinamool Congress leader Mahua Moitra’s expulsion from the Lok Sabha triggered a political slugfest on Friday, with the opposition calling it a “betrayal of India’s parliamentary democracy” and the BJP asserting that it was an “apt decision” as there was proof of the allegations levelled against her.

Moitra was expelled from the Lok Sabha on Friday after the House adopted the report of its ethics committee that held her guilty of accepting gifts and illegal gratification from a businessman to further his interest.

After a heated debate over the panel report during which Moitra was not allowed to speak, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi moved a motion to expel the TMC MP for “unethical conduct”, which was adopted by a voice vote.
