The uproar over Trinamool Congress MP Nusrat Jahan’s “contradictory” remarks about her marital status is far from over. BJP MP Sanghmitra Maurya has now written to Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla, requesting that the matter be referred to the Ethics Committee for a thorough “investigation into her illegal and ethical conduct” and appropriate action taken against her.
Maurya described her House membership as “non-est.” Sanghmitra Maurya, the BJP MP from Badaun in Uttar Pradesh, attached the Lok Sabha profile of the Trinamool Congress MP, where she mentions her husband’s name as Nikhil Jain, in her letter to the Speaker on June 19. “An appropriate action be informed under relevant Lok Sabha procedure and/or the matter be referred to the Committee on Ethics for a detailed investigation for her illegal and ethical conduct,” Maurya wrote in the letter. ” “Her media statement about her marital status calls into question her oath for Lok Sabha membership, which she took as Nusrat Jahan Ruhi Jain. “As a result, her membership is effectively null and void in law,” the letter continued.
According to Maurya’s letter, Jahan pronounced her name as Nusrat Jahan Ruhi Jain during her oath ceremony on June 25, 2019, and she was also dressed as a newlywed. “In fact, when she was attacked by a section of Islamists for marrying a non-Muslim and wearing sindoor, MPs from all parties came to her defence.” According to media reports, CM Mamata Banerjee attended her reception,” the BJP MP wrote.
Maurya stated that Jahan has the right to her personal life and that no one should interfere with it, but her recent media statement about her marriage indicates that “she deliberately provided false information in Parliament.” “She purposefully provided false information to the Lok Sabha Secretariat, engaging in unethical, illegal, and immoral behaviour.” “She cheated her electorate by providing false information, and this reflects poorly on parliament and its members,” Maurya charged.
Jay Prakash Majumdar, vice president of the West Bengal BJP, had earlier this month accused Jahan of making “contradictory” remarks about her marital status and said the law should take its own course.
“This is a massive contradiction.” She is a member of the legislature. She is a legislator, and she is not abiding by the rules. The law should be allowed to take its own course. “Even in parliament, she declared her marital status as’married,'” Majumdar said.
He referred to Nusrat Jahan’s comments about her divorce from businessman Nikhil Jain, in which she stated that the issue of divorce does not arise because the “ceremony” was never valid under Indian law. Nusrat stated in the statement that because they married outside of Turkey, according to Turkish Marriage Regulation, her marriage is not legally valid. “Because it was an interfaith marriage, it required validation under India’s Special Marriage Act, which did not occur.” According to the law, it is not a marriage, but rather a relationship or a live-in relationship. “As a result, the issue of divorce does not arise,” she explained.
