December 8, 2023: Trinamool MP Mahua Moitra has been expelled from the Lok Sabha on Friday after a discussion on the report of the Ethics Committee in the ‘cash for query’ that was tabled in the Lower House.



The opposition party staged a walkout after the Lok Sabha adopted the motion to expel the TMC leader.



Speaker Om Birla said, “...This House accepts the conclusions of the Committee that MP Mahua Moitra's conduct was immoral and indecent as an MP. So, it is not appropriate for her to continue as an MP..."

During an interview, Mahua Moitra after her expulsion said, "...If this Modi government thought that by shutting me up they could do away with the Adani issue, let me tell you this that this kangaroo court has only shown to all of India that the haste and the abuse of due process you have used demonstrates how important Adani is to you. And to what length you will go to harass a single woman MP into shutting her into submission..."





"The Ethics Committee has no power to expel....This is the beginning of your (BJP) end”, she added.
