In a sarcastic response on Twitter amid an argument over her Louis Vuitton bag, Mahua Moitra said she paid for the handbag and the lawyer from the same source.
Trinamool Lok Sabha MP Mahua Moitra, whose Louis Vitton sack in Parliament has created a new row, took a stab at responding to a social media user who asked her the source of the money and said: ” Modiji sent me some of the proceeds after the auction of his ₹10 lakh suit. I bought a purse and used the rest to pay for attorney’s fees.” The “attorney’s fees” were related to her motion challenging the director’s “unlawful extension” of the Law Enforcement MP for Lok Sabha tweeted that the Supreme Court had accepted his petition and called on the Indian government to respond within 10 days.
“Where do you get the money to file Supreme Court petitions? That’s what the agencies should be investigating,” one Twitter user wrote. Mahua Moitra’s response also addressed the controversy over her Louis Vitton bag. The money for the petition and the bag come from the same source, the sarcastic tweet said.
A Lok Sabha video has gone viral with the BJP claiming Mahua Moitra was seen hiding her Louis Vitton bag quickly as the price hike debate began on Monday. BJP’s Shehzad Poonawalla called her “Marie Antionette” and denounced her “hypocrisy”.
As the debate swept through social media on Monday, with many claiming that as an investment banker before joining politics Mahua Moitra could afford the bag, the MP posted a photo collage on Tuesday showing how she carries the bag Louis Vitton since 2019. “Jholewala fakir in Parliament since 2019. Jhole leke aye le… jhola leke chal padenge,” Mahua Moitra tweeted.
