Modi gives a fitting reply to Renuka Chowdhury's cackle in Rajya Sabha

By Vikas

Narendra Modi took a dig at Congress leader Renuka Chowdhury who laughed out loud during the Prime Minister's speech in Rajya Sabha. When Rajya Sabha Chairman Venkaiah Naidu objected to Chowdhury's interruption, Modi said, "Sabhapati Ji, I request you don't say anything to Renuka ji. After Ramayan serial, we are now getting the opportunity to hear such a laugh."

BJP leaders roared in laughter and clapped after Modi took a jibe at Chowdhury in Rajya Sabha. Naidu asked Opposition to maintain silence in the house, saying, "The entire country is watching us, we should not become a laughing stock."

After the session, Renuka Chowdhury dubbed Modi's remark as "denigrating the status of a woman."

"PM made a personal remark, what else do you expect from him? I can't fall to that level to reply to him. This is actually called denigrating the status of a woman," she said.

Union Minister Smriti Irani said Renuka Chowdhury is making using "gender as her shield".

After a blistering attack on Congress in Lok Sabha, Modi continued his tirade against the grand old party in Rajya Sabha.

"You don't need new India, but the India of Emergency, of Bofors and chopper scams...You don't want new India. You want a Bharat in which the people bow in front of the government," he said.

Modi also asked the Congress why they were blocking the Triple Talaq bill.

"Look at all that you have mocked -- Swachh Bharat, Make in India, surgical strikes, Yoga Day. You are free to mock as you please but why are you blocking the bill for OBC Commission? Why are you blocking Triple Talaq Bill. Are you not sensitive to the aspirations of OBCs," the PM said.
