Meanwhile, BJP MP Nishikant Dubey who is a member of the standing committee on Information Technology has written to the Lok Sabha Speaker seeking the removal of Tharoor from the post of its chairman. According to Dubey, the Congress MP from Thiruvananthapuram had violated rules of procedure of Lok Sabha.

The Jharkhand MP had yesterday given a breach of privilege notice against Tharoor and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi over Facebook row.

Dubey said Tharoor has no powers to summon any entity/organisation without consulting the members of the committee. "The agenda of any sitting of the parliamentary committee is decided after due deliberations and consultation with all the members," he said.
