Parliament Winter Session updates: Moitra expelled from Lok Sabha, Mamata says sad day for democracy

Amid an Oppositon walk-out, the Lok Sabha has expelled Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra from House as it adopted the Ethics Committee recommendation in 'cash-for-query' matter. In her reaction the TMC leader said that the decision was a weaponisation of a Parliamentry committee.

While the Ethics Committee tabled its report on Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra's involvement in an alleged 'cash-for-query' case, the lower house speaker Om Birla has disallowed her from speaking in the House.

Trinamool Congress and other opposition members demanded that Moitra be allowed to put her views in the House, which was turned down by Speaker Om Birla citing past precedence.

Birla observed that in 2005, the then Speaker Somnath Chatterjee had in a directive disallowed 10 Lok Sabha members, who were involved in a 'cash for questions' scam, to speak in the House.

Earlier, Lok Sabha saw protests and was adjourned till 2 PM on Day 5 of the ongoing Winter Session of the Parliament.

5 key takeaways from Mahua's first reaction

1. There is no evidence of any cash or any gifts, anywhere. The recommendation of expulsion is solely on the ground that I shared my Lok Sabha portal login. There are no rules whatsoever to govern the sharing of the logins.

2. If this Modi govt thought that by shutting me up they were going to get away with the Adani issue, let me tell you this this kangaroo court has only shown to all of India how important Adani is to you.

3. 'Tomorrow the CBI will be sent to my house... I am sure, they will harass me for the next 6 months but I would like to ask what about the 13,000 crore coal scam of Adani that the CBI and the ED have not found a place to look at.

4. You hate minorities, you hate women, you detest Nari Shakti, and you cannot handle power and authority.

5. I am 49 years old and I will fight you for the next 30 years -- inside Parliament, outside Parliament, in the gutter, on the streets6. This is the beginning of your end, 'Jab naash manush par chahta hai toh pehle Vivek mar jaata hai'
