TMC Refrains from Commenting on Mahua Moitra\'s \'Cash for Query\' Controversy

Mamata Displeased with MP\'s Role Amid Controversy, Moitra Continues Attack on Centre and Adani

Kolkata: West Bengal's ruling Trinamul Congress made it clear that it would not get involved in the controversy over its Lok Sabha MP Mahua Moitra's alleged role in 'cash for query' scandal.

Reacting to the controversy over Ms Moitra, TMC spokesperson Kunal Ghosh said on Saturday, "I think the individual at the centre of the issue will be able to explain it better. TMC have nothing to say about it."

According to sources, TMC supremo and chief minister Mamata Banerjee has been unhappy with her party MP's role since the controversy broke a few days ago. Ms Moitra however continued her attack on the Centre and industrialist Gautam Adani.

In a series of posts on X, she wrote, "Request NIC to please release ALL details of MPs publicly to show they were physically present in place from where IDs were accessed by their PAs & researchers/ interns/ staff. Don’t use Fake Degree wala for leak, make this public NOW."

The Krishnanagar TMC MP claimed, "Unknown FPIs own Adani shares whose origin SEBI cannot find & Adani gets MHA clearance to buy Mumbai airport. This is the real question of National security. Not email ID that every PA & every unchecked intern team of every MP has publicly & accesses at will."

She added, "Sorry Mr. Adani. I am not taking your deal to shut up for six months in return for “peace”. And nor am I taking the second deal where I am allowed to attack you but not the PM. Adani used to CASH TO NOT QUESTION. Now he is forced to create a fake CASH FOR QUESTIONS."

Ms Moitra also alleged, "Also got message about impending CBI raid. I am busy with Durga Puja. I invite CBI to come home & count my pairs of shoes. But first please file FiR into ₹13,000 crore coal money Adani stole from Indians."
