TMC MP Mahua Moitra has been accused of asking questions in the parliament in exchange for cash. Similar row erupted in 2005
In 2005, 11 MPs were expelled from the Parliament after they were accused of taking money for asking targeted questions in the House
The mixed bag of MPs were from 4 separate parties. The list included 6 MPs from BJP, 3 from BSP and one each from Congress and RJD
The ‘cash-for-query’ scam was unearthed after two journalists broadcast a sting operation footage of the MPs. They were caught seeking money on tape
A special court ordered framing of graft and criminal conspiracy charges against the former MPs in August 2017.
