New Delhi: Both Houses of the Parliament have been adjourned till 12 pm over Congress leader Adhir Chowdhury’s remarks calling President Droupadi Murmu “Rashtrapatni.”
Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury swiftly apologised saying it was a mere slip of the tongue and the BJP is “making a mountain out of a molehill”. He accused the BJP of distracting from crucial discussions on price rise, the Agnipath scheme, unemployment etc.
Accusing the Congress of “demeaning” President Droupadi Murmu, Union Minister Smriti Irani today protested in the Lok Sabha demanding an apology after its leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury. Another protest led by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, saw her standing with fellow MPs with placards on the Parliament premises protesting the remark. Inside the lower house, Sitharaman called it a “deliberate sexist abuse” and demanded that Congress President apologise.
