Members of Left parties in the Lok Sabha today demanded action against the Trinamool Congress members allegedly shown accepting bribe in the Narada sting, into which the Calcutta High Court today ordered a CBI probe.
Mohammad Salim (CPI-M) in high pitched voice attacked TMC members, only a few of whom were present in the House, even though Speaker Sumitra Mahajan did not allow him to raise the issue.
"Why is the Ethics Committee not conducting its meeting? There should be some shame. They (TMC members) are bribe-takers," he said, joined by other Left members.
It is a question of Parliament's dignity as allegations have been levelled against its members, he said.
Saugata Roy (TMC) was seen countering Salim but he could not be heard.
