Refer TMC MP’s Ethical Misconduct To Committee on Ethics

LEADER of the CPI(M) group in Rajya Sabha, Sitaram Yechury has written to the Speaker of Lok Sabha regarding the outrageous remarks made by Trinamool Congress MP, Tapas Paul on July 3.  The letter noted that Tapas Pal, MP in the 16th Lok Sabha from Trinamool Congress had made a highly objectionable statement publicly in a gathering at his constituency Krishnanagar "If anyone from the Opposition dares to touch any women then I will send my boys and get women of CPI(M) raped." He also says that he roams around with 'maal' (revolver) and will not hesitate to use it on his opponents. This video was apparently showing in all the media on July 1, 2014 and now available with the media. This is a clear cut case of ethical misconduct on the part of Tapas Pal which had led to denigrating the image of parliamentarians and is also an unbecoming conduct on the part of the member. The letter requested that the above said act of ethical misconduct may be referred to Committee on Ethics and suitable punitive action may be taken against the member.
