TMC MP Mahua Moitra tries to bully Zee News Editor Sudhir Chaudhary with her parliamentary privilege

By resorting to cheap slurs to settle her personal score, Mahua Moitra disregarded her parliamentary privileges by not only abusing an independent journalist but also by intimidating and threatening them from continuing their job freely.

TCP MP Mahua Moitra, the new liberal icon in the town, who has been at the forefront of the controversy for her alleged ‘plagiarised’ speech, has now resorted to threatening journalists with her parliamentary privileges after they accused her ‘plagiarising’ her maiden speech.

She submitted a breach of privilege motion today Chaudhary claiming that they falsely reported her maiden address in this House. By resorting to cheap slurs to settle her personal score, Mahua Moitra disregarded her parliamentary privileges by not only abusing an independent journalist but also by intimidating and threatening them from continuing their job freely.

However, the Lok Sabha speaker Om Birla did not accept the breach of privilege motion submitted by the Trinamool MP.

Interestingly, Krishnanagar MP has chosen to hide under her parliamentary privileges to bully and threaten journalists for reporting the facts instead of initiating legal proceedings against the media organisation for alleged misreporting of facts.

Earlier on July 3, Sudhir Chaudhary in his flagship show DNA in Zee News had reported regarding the alleged plagiarism made by Mahua Moitra during her controversial speech in the Lok Sabha targetting the Narendra Modi government. Chaudhary had shared documents and tweeted images of a 2017 article from which he had alleged that Moitra had “stolen” words for her speech.

After severe embarrassment, Mahua Moitra had resorted to abuse the media and journalists while claiming that she had not ‘stolen’ her speech. In doing so, he had even blamed the media as a ‘paid media’.

With Mahua Moitra attacking and threatening media, she seems to be following in the footsteps of her leader Mamata Banerjee, who has the same trait of assaulting freedom of expression of the press when they criticise her authoritarian rule in the state of West Bengal.
