The Lok Sabha on Friday expelled Trinamool Congress leader Mahua Moitra as Member of Parliament for ‘unethical conduct’ in ‘cash for Parliament Questions’.
Meanwhile, before announcing the expulsion of Moitra, the Speaker requested every member that they need to prepare the question themselves.
“No one can put the question on behalf of the MP, I am speaking on record. I am the Speaker and it is my responsibility to maintain the dignity of the House,” he said.
Moitra was expelled following the Ethics Committee report recommendations accepted on voice vote.
