Mahua had said- I will destroy all the lies on 2nd November.
On the other hand, before leaving for Delhi, Mahua said – ‘I will destroy all the lies on 2nd November. If I had taken even a single rupee, the BJP would have immediately put me in jail. BJP wants to suspend me from Parliament. The truth is that they can’t even style my hair. The Ethics Committee does not have criminal jurisdiction.
Dehadrai said – I will soon reveal the truth to everyone
Supreme Court lawyer Jai Anant Dehadrai, who filed a complaint against Mahua in the cash for query case, said that the matter is still in the court, so it would not be right to say anything about it right now. But later I will reveal the truth.
He said that I cannot comment about anyone else. This is a free country, everyone can say whatever they want here. But, whatever you say, you have to face the consequences. When the right time comes, I will also tell everyone what happened. If a person is trying to hide the reality by becoming a victim, then the whole country is watching him. The majority of people are intelligent.
Jai Anant Dehadrai has filed a complaint against Mahua by giving evidence against her in CBI.

Ethics Committee is not the right place to investigate private matters.

If there is any criminal charge against me then the investigating agencies should investigate. Ethics Committee is not the right place to investigate someone’s private matter.
