"National security with a login portal? Mr. Adani is buying all our ports, all our airports... His shareholders are foreign investors and the ministry of home affairs is giving them clearance to buy all our infrastructure," the TMC leader vehemently expressed after her expulsion from the Parliament.

Her departure was punctuated by references to Ramesh Biduri's derogatory remarks aimed at BSP MP Danish Ali. She questioned the BJP's inaction against Biduri, emphasizing the absence of Muslim MPs in their ranks. "The BJP has sent 303 MPs but hasn't sent one Muslim MP to Parliament. No action has been taken against Biduri for abusing Ali…You hate minorities, you hate women, you hate nari shakti," she proclaimed.

"I am 49 years old, I will fight you for the next 30 years, inside parliament, outside parliament, in the gutter, on the street," Moitra said. Her unwavering determination signaled an intent to confront the BJP over perceived injustices, leaving an indelible mark on the political landscape.
