But Modi stopped the speaker and said he must not stop Renuka Chowdhury as many years after Ramayan we are getting to hear such a hearty laughter. This remark of PM made whole the Rajya Sabha erupt with laughter. While Renuka Chowdhury stopped promptly.
The MP, however, did not take the remark in jest. Talking to media outside the Parliament on Wednesday evening Chowdhary slammed the prime minister for the personal remark.
Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a fresh attack at the Congress Party in both houses, saying the country has been suffering due to the “wrong” policies it has pursued since independence and that the party has spent time singing paeans to one family instead of focusing on people’s welfare.
