PM Modi’s Ramayana jibe on Renuka Chowdhury’s hysterical cackling

PM Modi spoke in the Rajya Sabha after his stinging speech in the Lok Sabha today. Unlike the Lok Sabha speech which saw high drama amidst constant sloganeering by Congress MPs, his Rajya Sabha address was more or less peaceful. However, it was not without some awkward moments which the PM used to make satirical remarks.

One such moment was when PM Modi referred to an old speech of ex-Home Minister and ex BJP President L K Advani made twenty years ago. When the PM proceeded to mention AADHAR was actually conceptualised here (the parliament), Congress MP Renuka Chowdhary started laughing hysterically.

Her sudden and loud laughter took many by surprise but the Rajya Sabha speaker and Vice President Venkaiyah Naidu did not take it kindly. He not only chided Renuka Chaudhury for ‘loose and unruly behaviour’ but also advised her to visit a doctor if she has a problem.

The PM too did not let the opportunity go. He requested the speaker that he must not stop Renuka Chowdhury. He added further, “many years after Ramayan we are getting to hear such a hearty laughter.”

The PM’s remark made the Rajya Sabha erupt with laughter. While Renuka Chowdhury stopped promptly, Social Media was abuzz with reactions and comments. People started guessing as to which character the PM was referring to when he mentioned Ramayan.

Twitterati not only hailed the PM’s sense of humour, they also questioned Renuka Chowdhury’s behaviour inside the Parliament.

Kanchan Gupta, the veteran journalist, also commented that while Renuka Chowdhari has the right to crackle, other have the right to crack a joke at the crackling.

Not a dull moment, when the PM speaks!
