Politicians pay-back; Om Puri facing privilege notices


Om Puri
New Delhi, Aug 29: There is trouble in store for veteran Bollywood actor Om Puri for launching a tirade against the politicians when he lambasted politicians calling them illierate and useless. The politicians are however miffed with Puri's rhetoric, with MPs deciding to submit privilege notices against the actor.

Two Lok Sabha MPs and two Rajya Sabha members submitted the notices citing that Puri made derogatory remarks against the House and the MPs in a public space. The BJP is also mulling to move a privilege notice. The issue lies with the speaker of the Lok Sabha and the Chairman of the Rajya Sabha to admit the notices in both the Houses. In such a scenario, in the event the notices getting accepted , a committee will examine the evidence against Puri and may even summon him.

Om Puri had earlier expressed his apology for making the stinging remarks in a popular TV channel's interview. He said, "I am unhappy with myself over two of the terms that I used. The first is 'uneducated' and the second is 'useless'. I agree I could have used better language, but I was caught in the moment and so used those terms."

With Om Puri facing the ire of politicians for his derogatory remarks, he will be sure regretting his fiery remarks at the spur of the moment.
