New Delhi: ‘What else do you expect from him?’
It was the Congress Rajya Sabha MP Renuka Chowdhury’s reaction over Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s dig at her during his speech in the Upper House of Parliament.
“PM made a personal remark, what else do you expect from him?’ she told reportes.
“I can’t fall to that level to reply to him. This is actually called denigrating the status of a woman,” Chowdhury added.
The Congress leader’s loud chuckling had infuriated Rajya Sabha chairman Venkaiah Naidu, who stopped PM Modi mid-sentence to admonish the 63-year-old.
“What happened to you,” Naidu asked Chowdhury sternly.
Even when being told off by Naidu, Chowdhury was heard laughing.
Modi cut in and urged Naidu not to stop Chowdhury.
“Sabhapati ji meri aapse vinti hai Renuka ji ko kuch mat kahiye. Ramayan serial ke baad aisi hansi sunne ka saubhagya aaj jaake mila hai (I request you to let Renuka ji continue. After the Ramayan serial, we got the privilege of hearing this kind of laughter only today,” he said, to the amusement of top BJP leaders and other ministers sitting around him.
