Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Sanjay Raut on Tuesday said the meeting by the Opposition's INDIA bloc, scheduled for tomorrow, was “not called in a hurry” and that it was planned “even before the declaration of (assembly) election results.” His statement came after West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee announced skipping the meeting, claiming that she was not made aware of it in advance. "This meeting was not called in a hurry. Even before the declaration of election results, this meeting was being planned...Mallikarjun Kharge spoke to Uddhav Thackeray about the meeting 2 days before the election results were announced...Uddhav Thackeray will reach Delhi tomorrow and take part in the meeting," the Shiv Sena (UBT) MP said. Earlier, while addressing the media, CM Banerjee said she would have rescheduled her itinerary if she had the information about the meeting. "I have got no information so I kept a programme in North Bengal. If we had the information, we wouldn't have scheduled those programmes. We would have definitely gone (for the meeting), but we have not received any information," she said. Dig Deeper

Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra on Tuesday said she was not sure if the Lok Sabha Ethics Committee report on her in the alleged ‘cash-for-query’ case would be placed or not in Parliament. "Let's see, I don't know whether they will place it or not," Moitra, who reached Parliament on Day 2 of the winter session told reporters. Parliamentary sources said the report of the ethics committee on the expulsion of Moitra from the Lok Sabha was expected to be tabled in the House on Tuesday. The Lok Sabha's Ethics Committee, chaired by BJP member Vinod Sonkar, had adopted its report at a meeting on November 9, recommending Moitra's expulsion from the lower house over the cash-for-query allegation. On Monday, Opposition members demanded a discussion in the Lok Sabha on the report, recommending the expulsion of the TMC member, before any decision was taken on the matter. Dig Deeper
