In its first list of candidates for the Lok Sabha elections announced on Saturday, the BJP has fielded the Opposition Chief Whip in the State Assembly, Manoj Tigga, for Alipurduar Lok Sabha Constituency, reserved for the Scheduled Tribes.
Trinamool Congress member Mahua Moitra was on Friday expelled from the Lok Sabha over cash-for-query allegations levelled by BJP member Nishikant Dubey.
Her expulsion came following a recommendation made in this regard by the Lok Sabha Ethics Committee which tabled its report in the House earlier in the day. The report was discussed briefly in the House before action was initiated against Moitra.
