On Friday, the lok sabha Ethics Committee will present its report on trinamool congress MP Mahua Moitra's 'cash-for-query' scandal. The report, which recommended Moitra's removal from parliament, was previously put on the lower house's agenda for december 4, but it was not tabled. The news comes after numerous Opposition MPs demanded that the ethics panel's suggestions be discussed before making a judgement on the trinamool congress MP.

Earlier that day, on november 9, the ethics panel, chaired by vinod kumar Sonkar, endorsed a report recommending Moitra's removal from the lok sabha over the 'cash-for-query' allegation. Six members of the panel voted in support of the report, including congress MP Preneet Kaur, who had previously been suspended from the grand old party for anti-party activities.

Four panel members from opposition parties provided dissent notes. The report was dubbed a "fixed match" by the opposition members, who said that the complaint made by bjp lok sabha member Nishikant Dubey, which the panel analysed, was not supported by a "shred of evidence." Dubey originally levelled the 'cash-for-query' charges against Moitra, citing supreme court lawyer jai Anant Dehadrai's claims that the trinamool congress MP collected paid to ask questions in parliament on behalf of industrialist Darshan Hiranandani.
