Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra has written to Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla questioning how the NDTV news channel, now owned by the Adani group, had access to the draft report of the ethics committee that investigated allegations of “exchange of queries” against it.
“What is most shocking is that this media channel is majority owned by the Adani Group, with whom I have raised very serious issues of corporate fraud and violations of financial and securities norms in the Lok Sabha,” Ms. Moitra said in her letter today. . On Thursday it was published.
He added that the Adani group “was hit by a Rs 13,000-crore coal scam where they over-invoiced imports besides serious allegations of defrauding companies in the power, gas, infrastructure sectors etc.”
“The share ownership pattern of this group is very suspicious, as the ownership of the questionable FPI is done secretly, in violation of Indian securities regulations,” Ms Moitra said.
In his letter, the Trinamool leader said this was a “complete breakdown” of all due process and Lok Sabha rules. “Your inaction and failure to respond to my previous complaint is also unfortunate. However, for your information, I would like to draw your urgent attention to this serious violation.”
His letter came hours before the Ethics Committee approved a report recommending his expulsion from the House of Representatives (Lok Sabha).
The report is scheduled to be submitted to Parliament on December 4. This is the first time since the establishment of the Ethics Committee in 2000 that the committee has recommended the expulsion of a representative.
