NEW DELHI: Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra Thursday tried to raise an issue in the Lok Sabha regarding alleged false reportage and personal attacks on her by a TV news channel and its editor, but was not allowed to do so.
Speaker Om Birla said he cannot allow names to be taken off of any person who is not a member of the House.
During the Zero Hour, Moitra was allowed to speak by Birla when she said she wanted to highlight an important issue through a point of order.
However, as soon as she took the names of the channel and the editor and tried to read out a statement, the Speaker asked her not to do so.
Immediately, the Speaker asked another MP to speak which forced Moitra to take her seat without completing her statement.
