- A round of allegations and counter-allegations between Congress MP Shashi Tharoor and BJP MP Nishikant Dubey
Amid the controversy over Facebook, the round of sending notice has started in the political world. Congress leader and Chairman of Parliamentary Standing Committee on IT Affairs, Shashi Tharoor sent notice to BJP MP Nishikant Dubey for breach of privilege. The Congress leader accused MP Dubey of making derogatory remarks. The BJP MP then gave notice to Shashi Tharoor and Rahul Gandhi for breach of privilege.
Charges on BJP i.e. MPs
Nishikant Dubey, BJP MP from Godda and member of the same committee, said, “I have seen for the first time that the chairman of the parliamentary committee has violated the privilege against his fellow member.” Justifying his move, he said that making false accusations against BJP meant accusing all its MPs.
The Congress leader has questioned the motives, truth and honesty of all MPs. When asked about the support of Tharoor by committee member TMC MP Mahua Moitra, the BJP MP said that those who are supporting Tharoor are not aware of the rules.
Tharoor wrote a letter to the Speaker of Lok Sabha
Earlier, Shashi Tharoor wrote a letter to Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla. In the letter, Tharoor referred to the Twitter statement of the BJP MP, in which he said that the chairman of the Standing Committee did not have the authority to do anything without discussing the agenda with its members.
Tharoor wrote that I hope that strict action will be taken in the matter so that future incidents can be avoided and people's trust in Parliament remains.
Tharoor said to question Facebook
On Sunday, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi tweeted claims from The Wall Street Journal that questioned the fairness of Facebook. After this, Shashi Tharoor wrote on Twitter that he can ask Facebook representatives to appear before the committee.
Many like the BJP MP objected to this, saying that Tharoor unilaterally and announced it on social media without consent with the committee members.
