Trinamool Congress MP Derek O’Brien made an emotional speech during the Juvenile Justice Bill debate in the Rajya Sabha.
"Had it been my daughter, god forbid, what would I do? Would I have trusted the laws of the country or hire the best lawyers or taken out a gun and shot him? I would have taken out a gun and shot him. So it is an emotional matter," Derek said.
"I urge parliament to put laws that ordinary citizens want...I stand here to support the bill...It is a good bill and we shouldn't wait for an ideal bill," he appealed the lawmakers of the Parliament.
Some of the fellow MPs objected to Derek’s remarks, for which he replied, "Don't take me wrong. I am trying to express myself. I am not acting irresponsible. I am talking as a father what would I do."
. @rahulkanwal Slept over it... My remark about the gun-daughter was used to explain a sentiment. I don't regret one word of what I said— Derek O'Brien (@quizderek) December 23, 2015
