Zee News Editor accuses Trinamool Congress MP of plagiarising Parliament speech
TMC MP Mahua Moitra has filed a defamation case against Sudhir Chaudhary, the editor of Zee News channel, in a Delhi court.
Taking cognisance of Moitra's complaint, the Metropolitan Magistrate Preeti Pareva listed the case for hearing on July 20. Her statement will be recorded on that day.
Sudhir Chaudhary described Moitra’s speech in Parliament speech as plagiarism.
He had said that the speech that TMC MP gave in Parliament had been lifted from an article published in the US.
Mahua Moitra had taken exception to his comments, and denied charges of plagiarism.
American author Martin Longman wrote the article about US President Donald Trump.
There was an interesting turn in this case when the author of the article himself came on social media and said that the MP was being wrongly charged.
