In a condemnable video accessed by Republic TV, Trinamool MP Mahua Moitra has been caught tearing a paper and aiming to throw it towards the Lok Sabha Speaker in a moment of ruckus during the ongoing budget session of Parliament. The incident happened when Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman was making a statement in the Lower House on Tuesday. This comes during a time when the Opposition has been uncompromisingly demanding a discussion over the Delhi violence, often leading to utter pandemonium.
