INDIA. Delhi: Mahua Moitra, a Trinamool Congress (TMC) MP, used “unparliamentary language” on the House floor on Tuesday while discussing the Adani controversy.
The leader is known for making striking comments and often making herself into the headlines; however, this time, she raised her voice on issues such as China, Pegasus, BBC, Morbi, Rafale, and Adani.
The TMC speaker, in her statement, said, “Today, I say this with a very heavy heart. The Lok Sabha is a space that stands out more for what cannot be said in its halls than for what we can say. The list of unmentionables is far longer than the list of mentionables. It is as though the treasury benches get training in a special camp that teaches them to react hysterically the very instant a member of the opposition utters certain words, no matter in what context. We can’t say China, Pegasus, BBC, Morbi, Rafale, and, on occasion, Modi ji. The President’s Address addresses our country’s greatest pain, “corruption and crony capitalism.”
Further attacking the industrialist and PM Modi, he said that despite the fact that Adani never made drones he got the contract for their manufacture when it was always HAL and other companies involved in the business. She referred to Adani as “Mr A” in the House.
Further said, “Prime Minister, this man Mr ‘A’ topi pehnaoed you (fooled you). He travels with you on your delegations. He meets heads of state on visits to India. He portrays India as the Prime Minister, and the Prime Minister is him. He makes it appear to the world that he is the remote control behind the Prime Minister and will oblige the Prime Minister by obliging him.”
In context to the statement, Parliament Speaker Om Birla said, “Nothing will be going on record. Some very harsh and offensive words have been used. I would request that the Parliamentary Affairs Minister speak with the party (TMC).”
As a result, veteran BJP leader and Union Minister of Parliamentary Affairs Pralhad Joshi demanded an apology from the Bengal dominant party after their party MP made such a contentious statement on the House floor.
