Mahua Moitra's ‘gun on head’ response to Hiranandani's affidavit in ‘cash for query’ row

In a signed affidavit, Hiranandani admitted to using TMC MP Mahua Moitra's Parliamentary login to ask questions targeting Gautam Adani.

Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra has issued a detailed response to the signed affidavit by businessman Darshan Hiranandani that corroborated BJP legislator Nishikant Dubey's claims about her receiving money and gifts for posing certain questions in Parliament 

Moitra expressed scepticism about the document's legitimacy due to the lack of official letterhead and notarization, suggesting that a prominent businessman like Darshan Hiranandani would not typically sign such an important statement on plain white paper without potential external pressure. 

“The affidavit is on white paper and not on official letterhead or notarised. Why would one of India's most respected/ educated businessman sign a letter like this on white paper unless a gun was put to his head to do it?” 

Calling the content of the letter a “joke”, Moitra further claimed that the affidavit was drafted by “some half-wit in the PMO who doubles up as a creative writer in the BJP's IT cell” 

Narendra Modi and billionaire industrialist Gautam Adani while implicating various political opponents and investigative journalists in her alleged corruption. 

“Cyril Shroff is Gautam Adani's “samdhi” and was on the SEBI's committee in total conflict of interest. Rahul Gandhi and Shashi Tharoor are both people the government targets relentlessly.
