Railway Budget 2015: What Venkaiah Naidu said about Rahul Gandhi that led Parliament to adjournment

New Delhi, Feb 26: Lok Sabha on Thursday, Feb 26 was adjourned following Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu's controversial remark on Vice President of Congress, Rahul Gandhi.

Adjournment of Lok Sabha ahead of much awaited Railway Budget by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu created ruckus in the Parliament. Despite Naidu's apology, Opposition leaders continued their protest in the House on Thursday.

Congress along with Trinamool Congress, CPM, NCP MPs staged a walkout following the protest. Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge said, "The minister has every right to explain his position but does not have a right to insult others...We will not tolerate your insult."

Naidu earlier in the Lok Sabha had criticised the Opposition. The Minister for Parliamentary Affairs criticised Congress and others for their opposition to the land ordinance, saying Congress governments had brought 637 ordinances and the United Front government 77.

Without taking Rahul Gandhi's name, Naidu slammed Congress and its Vice President. Hinting at Rahul Gandhi's controversial leave during Budget session, Naidu said, "if the Congress can't do it here, then it should go somewhere far and do it."

Naidu was referring to Congress's poor performance in all assembly elections which have been held in different states post Lok Sabha election 2014.

Speaking about recently held Delhi assembly elections, Naidu said, "We need to examine why after winning in seven states we lost in Delhi... You (Congress) have been reduced to zero."
