ANI Photo | “Big case of corruption…”: Manoj Tiwari on ‘cash for query’ case

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Manoj Tiwari on Friday said that the ‘cash for query’ scandal is a big case of corruption.
“This is a big case of corruption. A parliamentarian gives permission to a businessman to ask question from his ID. So you can understand the transactions going on in this case,” Tiwari said speaking to reporters on Friday in Gorakhpur.
Tiwari further said that the matter is with the Ethics Committee and it seems to him that Moitra will be punished.
“It seems that Mahua Moitra will be punished in this case. The matter is with the ethics committee and everything will be investigated,” the BJP MP said.
Reacting to the raids by the Enforcement Directorate against Bengal Minister Jyotipriya Mallick, Tiwari said, “Whether it is the TMC or their INDIA allaince, all of them are corrupt. In time all their deceits will come in the open.”
The BJP MP also said that the matter of Delhi pollution will be solved only when Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is removed from power.
“When Arvind Kejriwal will be removed, the matter of pollution in Delhi will be solved in two years,” he said.
The Ethics committee has summoned Mahua Moitra on October 31 over allegations against her in the ‘Cash-for-Query’ scandal. However, Moitra has sought more time from the committee.
Earlier on Thursday, BJP MP Nishikant Dubey and advocate Jai Anant Dehadrai, who initially levelled the cash-for-query allegation against the TMC MP, appeared before the Lok Sabha Ethics Committee to submit oral evidence on their allegations.
The BJP MP earlier wrote to the Lok Sabha Speaker, alleging the involvement of Mahua Moitra in the ‘cash for query’ scandal. He claimed that he held evidence as shared by Advocate Dehadrai, which allegedly corroborates the charges against the TMC MP
