“I write to you in nice anguish in the present day to replace you on the unethical, sordid, and prejudiced behaviour meted out to me on the listening to of the Ethics Committee by the Chairman …
I’d urge you instantly to present me safety from being subjected to private humiliation and malicious conduct by the aforesaid below the guise of a purported “Ethics Committee” listening to,” reads her letter to Birla.
‘Subjected to vastraharan’
Moitra went on to say she was subjected to the “proverbial vastraharan” by the chairperson, BJP MP Vinod Kumar Sonkar, and as a substitute of asking questions pertinent to the matter, exhibited a preconceived bias by questioning her in a malicious and defamatory means.
“I’ve been subjected to the proverbial ‘vastraharan’ by him within the presence of all members of the Committee,” Moitra mentioned within the strongly-worded letter.
“The committee must designate itself below a reputation apart from the ethics committee because it has no ethics and morality left,” she added.
In the meantime, Sonkar mentioned the committee had been tasked with conducting a complete probe into the matter and that as a substitute of cooperating, Moitra turned indignant together with opposition members and so they used “objectionable phrases” and made unethical claims in opposition to him.
Moitra, who’s on the centre of a bribe-for-query row, appeared earlier than the Ethics Committee of the decrease home on Thursday. The committee is probing BJP Lok Sabha member Nishikant Dubey’s allegations in opposition to Moitra.
Dubey has accused Moitra of asking questions, which have been keyed in by means of her parliamentary account, on the behest of businessman Darshan Hiranandani in return for bribes and favours from the Dubai-based scion of a widely known enterprise household.
Moitra has admitted that she shared her log-in credentials with Hiranandani, whom she has described as a detailed buddy for a very long time, however has dominated out any pecuniary motive and asserted that the questions have been at all times hers.
The Trinamool Congress MP has claimed that the Adani Group is behind the “bogus” fees resulting from her strident criticism of the enterprise conglomerate.
