This is highly objectionable, will file for privilege: Renuka Chowdhary over her laughter video
Union Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju posted a video of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's remarks on Renuka Chowdhary in Rajya Sabha.
Taking the dig at Chowdhary, Rijiju shared a Facebook post late on Wednesday after Modi compared Chowdhary's laughter with the one in the epic television serial "Ramayana" in the 1980s.
However, this didn't go well with Chowdhary. Speaking to ANI, she said,''This is highly objectionable, and I am going to file for privilege.''
The Congress also slammed Modi as "anti-women" for his "derogatory remark" against its MP Renuka Chowdhury in Parliament.
Earlier on Wednesday, Modi had taken a dig at Chowdhary, who burst out laughing at his claim that the idea of Aadhaar was conceptualised during the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government.
Modi had compared her laughter with the one in Ramanand Sagar's epic series.
Surpanakha was Lankan King Ravana's sister. It was to avenge her insult that Ravana had kidnapped Sita triggering his own fatal destiny at the end of a war between the two sides in the epic "Ramayana".
