A comment made by PM Modi after NDA candidate Harivansh’s victory in the election for the post of Rajya Sabha deputy chairperson was deleted from the house records, causing embarrassment for the government.
In a rare and embarrassing development for the government, a portion of PM Modi’s speech has been deleted from the records in Parliament on August 9. Modi allegedly made “derogatory remarks” about Congress candidate BK Hariprasad in the Rajya Sabha after the NDA candidate Harivansh won the election for the post of the deputy chairperson.
As per media reports, PM Modi in his speech while congratulating Harivansh, said that the election was between “two Haris” and he went on to take a swipe at Hariprasad, playing on his initials. The PM’s remark was seen as derogatory by some from the Opposition camp. Rashtriya Janata Dal MP Manoj Kumar Jha raised the issue under Rule 238 and urged Rajya Sabha chairperson Venkaiah Naidu to expunge the remark. Jha said PM’s remarks were “derogatory in direction and intent.”Immediately after this, Modi praised Hariprasad for doing his bit to protect the dignity of democracy in a lost battle.
