Businessman Darshan Hiranandani Alleges Mahua Moitra Of Asking For Bribe. MP Files Defamation

Businessman Darshan Hiranandani submitted an affidavit to Lok Sabha ethics committee on Friday in which he claimed that TMC MP Mahua Moitra had asked for bribe from him for questioning against businessman Gautam Adani in Parliament.

Soon after the receiving the affidavit, panel chief Vinod Sonkar said the case will be investigated as it’s a huge crime.

“I received a complaint related to Mahua Moitra. In this regard, a meeting of ethics committee has been called on October 26. A notice has been sent to BJP MP Nishikant Dubey to appear before the committee on October 26 in connection with the allegations of bribery.

A detailed examination will be done by the committee in this matter and a conclusion will then be reached… ” said Mr Sonkar in a statement.

Mr Hiranandani accepted that he used Moitra’s parliamentary login to question Adani following a state-owned behemoth Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) booked capacity at Gujarat-based Dharma LNG import facility in Odisha and not at his firm’s facility.

Talking about the actions need to be taken the panel chief also said, “if someone has used MP’s login, then it is a very serious offence. We will go through all the evidences on October 26 when the complainants have been asked to be present with proof”.

“This has happened for the first time in Parliament’s history. This is very unique and serious case,” he said further.

In the mean time, a defamation case filed by TMC MP Mahua Moitra was heard by a bench headed by Justice Sachin Datta. Now the next hearing on matter is scheduled to be on October 31.
