Share This

modi-10NEW DELHIA portion of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech in parliament on Thursday, with reference to a Congress parliamentarian, has been deleted from the records in a development that is rare and embarrassing for the government.

Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu expunged remarks made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the House that were found to be “objectionable”.
PM Modi made the comments in the Rajya Sabha after the government’s candidate, Harivansh, won the election for the post of deputy chairperson. Congress’s BK Hariprasad was the opposition candidate in the closely-fought election.

PM Modi, in his speech congratulating Harivansh, said the election was between “two Haris”. He went on to take a swipe at Mr Hariprasad, playing on his initials, which was seen as derogatory and infuriated the Congress. Immediately after, he praised Mr Hariprasad for doing his bit to protect the dignity of democracy in a lost battle.
