Cong MP’s remark on President Murmu triggers protest in Lok Sabha.
Lok Sabha MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury referred to President Droupadi Murmu as “Rashtrapatni”.
Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury is the leader of the Congress party in the Lok Sabha.
“There is no question of apologising. I had mistakenly said ‘Rashtrapatni’', said Adhir Chowdhury.
Union Minister Smriti Irani slammed the Congress and demanded an apology for maliciously targeting President Murmu.
She further said a tribal woman from a poor family who created history in the country is continuously demeaned by the Congress party.
Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman also demanded an apology from Sonia Gandhi in Rajya Sabha.
