Adhir Ranjan said – I did not get a chance to explain in Parliament
Meanwhile, Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, embroiled in controversy for making controversial remarks on President Murmu, said that yesterday there was a ruckus against me in Parliament, but I was not given a chance to reply. He said that the way Sonia Gandhi was targeted yesterday, the government should demand a lot. I am at the center of the controversy that is happening. Despite this, BJP is attacking Sonia Gandhi. He said that I have sought an opportunity to give my reply in Parliament.
Adhir Ranjan said- ‘I did not say this intentionally’
Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury yesterday apologized for calling President Draupadi Murmu ‘national wife’. Talking to the media yesterday, he said that I did not say this intentionally. It accidentally came out of my mouth. In this regard, BJP MPs had demonstrated in Parliament yesterday against Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury’s remarks on President Draupadi Murmu.
Smriti Irani had alleged
Smriti Irani was very vocal about this in Parliament yesterday. He said that the Congress is still unable to accept the fact that a tribal woman is adorning the highest constitutional post of this country. Sonia Gandhi-appointed Leader of the House Adhir Ranjan addressed Draupadi Murmu as the wife of the nation. He said that ever since Draupadi Murmu’s name was announced as the presidential candidate, Draupadi Murmu became a victim of the Congress party’s hatred and ridicule. The Congress party called him a puppet.
Sonia Gandhi’s statement
On the other hand, Sonia Gandhi also gave a statement on this whole matter. Taking the side of Chaudhary on this whole controversy, Sonia Gandhi said that Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury has apologized on this.
