NEW DELHI: A day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi commented on Congress MP Renuka Chowdhury’s laughter in the Rajya Sabha, her party on Thursday sought an apology from the PM while Chowdhury threatened to move privilege motion on the matter.
Congress members raised the matter in Rajya Sabha. A women delegation of Congress MPs also met Rajya Sabha Chairman Venkaiah Naidu on the matter.
“I am planning to move a privilege motion on the matter and will decide after discussion within the party,” Chowdury told reporters after the meeting. The BJP said it will move a similar motion against her for insulting the PM in the Upper House.
Modi had said, “Chairman sir, don’t stop Renukaji. For the first time, after seeing Ramayana serial, I have got an opportunity to see such a laughter.”
