TMC MP to file petition against Azad in Rajya Sabha

first_imgNew Delhi, May 3 (PTI) Trinamool Congress (TMC) MP Sukhendu Sekhar Roy today said he will file a “petition” in the Rajya Sabha against Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad for “deliberately” misleading the House on AgustaWestland chopper issue.”I am going to file a petition within a week demanding strong action against Azad for deliberately misleading the House on AgustaWestland chopper scam,” Roy said here.According to Roy, the Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha said on April 27 that AgustaWestland had been blacklisted by the UPA government which is not “true”.”The fact of the matter is that the then Defence Minister AK Antony said on December 11, 2013 that AugustaWestland has not been blacklisted in the House. So Azad is wilfully misleading the House,” TMC leader said.Chairman Hamid Ansari had yesterday asked Roy to withdraw from Rajya Sabha for the day as he raised VVIP chopper deal issue, despite his notice having been rejected.Meanwhile, a day after Roy was asked to leave the House, TMC members walked out of the Rajya Sabha questioning why no action was taken against 33 Congress members who were named for “gross disorderly conduct” for protesting in the Well.
