For months, Nishikant Dubey and Mahua Moitra locked horns on social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter. While Moitra accused Dubey of facing his degree, the tirades continued after the Lok Sabha ethics committee started an enquiry into the allegations against Mahua Moitra. But on December 8, the day on which Mahua Moitra lost her Lok Sabha membership, Nishikant Dubey did not put out any tweet. Neither did advocate Jai Anant Dehadrai who forwarded his complaint to Dubey alleging that Mahua Moitra shared her Parliament login with industrialist Darshan Hiranandani who posted questions on Gautam Adani that Mahua Moitra raised in the Lok Sabha. It was alleged that Mahua took cash and gifts in exchange for the favour, which the former Trinamool MP rejected though she admitted to having shared the login with Hiranandani to get the help of his office to key in the questions in the portal.

Mahua Moitra, an elected member from the Krishnanagar Parliamentary Constituency of West Bengal from the membership of Lok Sabha, Smt. Mahua Moitra has ceased to be a member of Lok Sabha with effect from the 8th December, 2023 afternoon,” the Lok Sabha secretariat notified on Friday evening.

Mahua Moitra’s expulsion from the Lok Sabha has become a rallying point for the INDIA parties as they unanimously condemned the way the Lok Sabha debate concluded by adopting the resolution. Trinamool supremo Mamata Banerjee said the party stands by Mahua Moitra.
