Karti Chidambaram questioned the contradiction in expelling Mahua Moitra from Lok Sabha despite a committee finding her "criminal," suggesting the subsequent call for an inquiry was contradictory, likening it to a technicality in cricket.

Karti Chidambaram invokes Angelo Mathews timeout to slam Mahua expulsion

Congress MP Karti Chidambaram on Friday slammed the expulsion of TMC MP Mahua Moitra from Lok Sabha.

While speaking to ANI, Karti Chidambaram said, "The committee concluded that she is criminal, but then recommended an intense legal institutional inquiry by the Government of India in a time-bound manner. After finding somebody criminal, why are you asking for an inquiry? This recommendation itself is completely contradictory. The person who drafted it has to read it again."

He even compared her expulsion to a Bangladesh-Sri Lanka match and said, "there was a match between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. Angelo Matthews was timed out because Shaqib ul Hassan appealed against it according to the law. It was correct, but it was against the spirit of cricket."

He further said, "Whatever happened, they might act as if it's under the law under procedure.But what they did was unethical. Please understand one thing in India, people don't mind if you defeat your opponent, but they don't like it when you humiliate your opponent."
