The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has reportedly issued a show cause notice to party MP Ramesh Bidhuri for using unparlimentary language against BSP MP Danish Ali in the Lok Sabha.
BJP issued the show cause notice to Bidhuri on instruction of party president J P Nadda for his use of unparliamentary language against BSP MP Danish Ali, news agency ANI reported citing sources.
Defence Minister Rajnath Singh had reportedly apologised immediately after Bidhur made the remarks.
Further, Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla had taken a serious view of use of unparliamentary words by a member.
Birla reportedly also issued a warning to Bidhuri that if if there is any recurrence of such behaviour in future, strict action will be taken.
Ali has approached Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla for action against BJP member Ramesh Bidhuri over the unparliamentary remarks, which were later expunged, made by the latter regarding him, during the debate in the Lok Sabha on the Chandrayaan 3 mission Thursday night.
In his letter to the speaker, Ali wrote :“I write to you with deep anguish regarding the speech given in the Lok Sabha by an MP of the BJP, Mr Ramesh Bidhuri, during the discussion on Chandrayaan success… During the course of his speech, he directed the most foul, abusive invectives against me, which are part of the records of the Lok Sabha. Among the words he directed against me were ‘Bhadwa’ (pimp),’Katwa’ (circumcised one),‘Mullah ugravadi’ (Muslim terrorist) ‘atankvadi’ ( terrorist) etc…", Indian Express reported.
Ali requested the Speaker to take “cognisance of this foul conduct on the floor of the House and take appropriate action” against Bidhuri.
He also asked that the matter be referred to the Privileges Committee of the Lok Sabha for prompt action.
