Mahua’s expulsion proves BJP’s political bankruptcy: Mamata Banerjee

Kolkata, Dec 8 (IANS): Launching a scathing attack on BJP over the expulsion of Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra from the Lok Sabha, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday said that the development once again proves the "political bankruptcy” of BJP.

“I am shocked hearing what happened at the Lok Sabha today. Mahua was not even given a chance to place her point of argument. The Lok Sabha members from the I.N.D.I.A. bloc sought some time to go through the 495-page report of the Ethics Committee of the Parliament. The discussion was completed within just half an hour,” the chief minister said while speaking to the media persons at Kurseong in north Bengal on Friday afternoon.

The chief minister claimed that the development proves the political bankruptcy of BJP. “Unable to counter Trinamool Congress politically, they are now resorting to such vendetta politics, where Mahua became a victim. Our party is beside her on this issue,” the chief minister said.

Thanking the I.N.D.I.A. bloc allies for extending support towards Moitra, the chief minister said that their support proves how united the allies are against BJP. “Our party will jointly move with the other allies of I.N.D.I.A. bloc in support of Mahua. Our movement against BJP and the current Union government will go on,” she added.

Banerjee said that the expulsion of Moitra was done in a hurried manner so that she cannot participate in just one session of the Parliament that is pending before the 2024 Lok Sabha polls. “I had a hope that the Prime Minister will consider this matter and allow her to participate in the remaining session,” the chief minister said.

    This is Bulldoz politics of BJP with Hitler’s dictatirship not giving the defendant opportunity to speak in defence. Because the truth the defendant may speak will be too bitter for BJP and all their plans will crumble. Moitra should approach SC appellate court to fight for her rights and get fair justice exposing BJP.

    Lets be fair here and keep political affiliations aside. Madame, sharing logging in userid details and password with an external party is crime. Any company for that matter would terminate an employee if they share these details with another employee or another company. Here this western educated Mahua shared her log in details and pass word of the Indian Parliment to a friend in Dubai ?????? Is this acceptable? If Congress or INDI Alliance parties support you here, its giving BJP victory in a platter before elections.
