Congress MLA from Manglaur, Qazi Nizamuddin, has accused the parliamentary affairs minister Madan Kaushik for misleading the house and providing wrong information and submitted a notice for breach of privilege motion in Vidhan Sabha.

According to the news report published in, he said that the minister stated that all the dues of sugarcane farmers for the season 2019-20 have been paid.
