PTC News Desk: The Parliamentary Ethics Committee, looking into the cash-for-query allegations against Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra, has approved the recommendation for her expulsion from Lok Sabha. According to sources, four members voted against the recommendation and six members voted in favor of it.
As per the media, the draft report had recommended cancelling her membership, finding her actions "highly objectionable, unethical, heinous and criminal".
