Renuka to move privilege notice to Prime Minister

Renuka Chowdhury

After that budget sessions, President Ramnath Kovind began his speech, following which Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave a lengthy vote of thanks. "Despite such (a) vexatious laugh by Renuka Chaudhary, the PM didn't get irritated", he added.

The Congress MP said, " I have chose to move privilege notice against prime minister. After Union Minister Kiren Rijiju mocked Renuka Chowdhury in a post shared on Facebook, the senior Congress leader today put up a motion for breach of privilege in the house against the incident. "I merely referred to PM's equanimity".

Immediately, Rajya Sabha speaker Venkaiah Naidu intervened and asked MP Renuka Chowdhury to consult a doctor if she is suffering from throat infection. The response of the Congress to this is wrong, he said. Rajya Sabha Chairman remarked that such behaviour is unbecoming.

Sharma had also questioned why PM Modi was silent about Rijiju's comments. "Women security does not come only by saying words like "Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao", as all this sounds like hollow talk", he said. As Modi sought to take away credit from the Congress government for Aadhaar, Chowdhury burst into a guffaw that resonated across the chamber and drew the disapproval of Chairman Naidu.
