Mahua Moitra probe already on? BJP MP says NIC has shared information | India News


INDIA: Firing a fresh salvo at MP Mahua Moitra in the alleged ‘cash for questions’ scam, BJP MP Nishikant Dubey on Saturday filed a complaint with anti-corruption ombudsman Lokpal, accusing her of taking bribes to raise questions in Parliament.
In his complaint, Dubey alleged that Mahua was in India when her parliamentary ID was used in Dubai and claimed that the National Informatics Centre had shared this information with probe agencies, raising speculation that agencies have already started investigations.
Moitra, however, was undeterred and kept up her attack on Adani Group, alleging that charges have been levelled against her at its behest.
She also posted on X that she had received a message about an impending CBI raid. “I am busy with Durga Puja. I invite CBI to come home and count my pairs of shoes. But first please file FIR into Rs 13,000 crore coal money Adani stole from Indians,” she said. Soon after Dubey posted a message in Hindi, saying he was “tired of hearing CBI, CBI” and has, thereby, lodged a complaint with Lokpal, which is entrusted with probing corruption cases against public authorities, including MPs. Earlier, he alleged that “an MP pawned the country’s security for some money”.
“Do the Trinamool Congress (TMC) and opposition still have to do politics? People will take a decision,” he said.
Moitra hit back, saying it is Adani’s dealings which are related to national security and “not (an) email ID (of MPs like her) that every PA & every unchecked intern team of every MP accesses at will”.
“Request NIC to please release ALL details of MPs publicly to show they were physically present in place from where IDs were accessed by their PAs & researchers/interns/staff. Don’t use Fake Degree wala for leak, make this public NOW (sic),” she posted on X, referring to her allegations about Dubey’s educational credentials.
Targeting the Adani Group further, Moitra said, “Sorry Mr Adani. I am not taking your deal to shut up for six months in return for ‘peace’. And nor am I taking the second deal where I am allowed to attack you but not the PM. Adani used to CASH TO NOT QUESTION. Now he is forced to create a fake CASH FOR QUESTIONS (sic).”
Dubey has accused Moitra of accepting bribes and favours for asking questions in Lok Sabha at the behest of businessman Darshan Hiranandani to target the Adani Group and PM Modi. Lok Sabha’s ethics committee is looking into Dubey’s complaint and has asked him to appear before it on October 26 for recording “oral evidence”.
In an affidavit, Hiranandani admitted to using Moitra’s parliamentary login to ask questions targeting Adani.
