Let the matter be investigated by the right forum of Parliament, said the Trinamool Congress (TMC) MP Derek O'Brien on Sunday on 'cash-for-query' accusations against party leader Mahua Moitra.
Derek O'Brien said, “We have observed reports in the media. The member concerned has been advised by the party leadership to clarify her position regarding the allegations levelled against her.
She has already done that. However, since the matter has to do with an elected MP, let the matter be investigated by the right forum of Parliament- after which the party leadership will take an appropriate decision.”
The TMC MP said that Mahua Moitra had been advised by the party to clarify her position regarding the allegations.
Citing a letter he received from Dehadrai, Dubey said the lawyer shared "irrefutable" evidence of bribes being given to Moitra.
In his letter to Birla, Dubey claimed 50 of 61 questions she asked in the Lok Sabha till recently were focused on the Adani Group, the business conglomerate which the TMC MP has often accused of malpractices, more so after it was at the receiving end of a critical report by short-seller Hindenburg Research.
On October 20, the Delhi High Court heard Moitra's petition seeking directions to restrain Dubey, Dehadrai and several social media platforms and media houses from posting, circulating or publishing any fake and defamatory content against her.
