Saloni Subha ( Intern Journalist ) Congress MP Shashi Tharoor, has given notice for breach of privilege against BJP MP Nishikant Dubey, claiming that he made “disparaging remarks” on social media over his decision to summon a panel meeting to discuss alleged “misconduct” of Facebook.

Shashi Tharoor in his open letter to Lok Sabha strongly objected to Dubey’s statement on Twitter that “the chairman of standing committee doesn’t have the authority to do anything without discussion of the agenda with its members”. Tharoor said Dubey accused him of championing his political party’s “agenda without the authorization by the committee and speaker.

Meanwhile, tagging a tweet on media reports about the rules and functioning of the committees, Dubey tweeted on Wednesday, “In the last 11 years as an MP, I have neither violated any rules nor would I let anyone violate or abuse their power for their parties personal vendetta with agenda”.
