Renuka files privilege motion against Rijiju for 'objectionable' social media post

11 February 2018

The minister's remarks came as a response to Congress MP Renuka Chowdhury moving a privilege motion against him for allegedly sharing a video of PM Narendra Modi mocking her laughter in the Rajya Sabha. Yesterday, during the reply, Modi had questioned the Congress's claim of being the originator of the biometric ID Aadhaar when he said that the then Home L K Advani had in 1998 spoken about an all-purpose ID in This led to Chowdhury bursting into loud laughter.

"There were hashtags like #LaughlikeSurpankha, #Lolisapasse and #LaughLike RenukaChowdhury".

After reminding Prime Minister Narendra Modi of a certain character from Ramayana, Congress leader Renuka Chowdhury has now transformed into a character from another epic - Mahabharata. But he forgets that the women today have changed and they know how to speak for themselves. In a tweet, he had said: "Renuka ji, I fail to comprehend in which way did I insult the women dignity?"

The two parties have been embroiled in a war of words ever since Chowdhury laughed during Modi's speech in the Rajya Sabha four days ago.

"However, Rijiju had held that there was nothing wrong in the video that he had posted".

"What was alluded to is shameful".

"This is the first time we are hearing such laughter after the "Ramayana" serial", Modi said.

"The prime minister is silent on that, which is again not only obnoxious, outrageous but condemnable".

Rijiju later clarified that he was "only referring to how PM didn't get annoyed". Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu had caked her out and told her to "go see a doctor" for her "unruly behaviour".
