Text of letter dated July 3, 2014 addressed by Shri Sitaram Yechury, Leader of CPI(M) Group in Rajya Sabha, to the Hon’ble Speaker of Lok Sabha regarding the outrageous remarks made by Trinamool Congress MP, Shri Tapas Pal.
“Shri 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 1st July 2014 and now available with the media.
”This is a clear cut case of ethical misconduct on the part of Shri Tapas Pal which had led to denigrating the image of Parliamentarians and is also an unbecoming conduct on the part of the Member.
“It is therefore, kindly 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.”
