New Delhi: BJP’s Lok Sabha MP Nishikant Dubey intensified his attack against TMC MP Mahua Moitra in the ‘cash for query’ scandal, alleging that Moitra’s login credentials for Parliament’s official website were used in Dubai. Dubey asserted that this information was provided to probe agencies by the National Informatics Centre. These fresh accusations surfaced following businessman Darshan Heeranandani’s affidavit, where he claimed to have given gifts to Moitra in exchange for parliamentary questions. Moitra has vehemently denied all allegations.
Dubey, who reported the matter to Parliament’s Ethics Committee, stated on X that Moitra’s ID for Parliament’s official website was accessed from Dubai while she was in India. He accused Moitra of compromising national security for financial gain, emphasizing that the government, Prime Minister, Finance Department, and central agencies are all part of the National Informatics Centre. He stressed that the opposition’s actions are being closely monitored. The Ethics Committee has summoned Dubey to provide oral evidence on October 26.
Hiranandani, in his affidavit, confessed to using Moitra’s parliamentary login details to access Parliament’s website and pose questions targeting Gautam Adani.
