Mahua Moitra

New Delhi, Aug 02: Did Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra just hide her bag during an ongoing discussion on “mehengai” (price rise/inflation) in the Lok Sabha? Well, that is what netizens believe has happened.

A video that has emerged on social media shows Trinamool Congress’s Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar speaking in the Lok Sabha and Moitra sitting right next to her. As soon as Dastidar raised the issue of price rise, Mahua Moitra, it appeared, quickly slid her Louis Vuitton bag under the table.

This clip was enough to create a hullabaloo on social media. So much so, that #LouisVuitton booked a spot on the Twitter trends list.
