Renuka Chowdhary laughs in between Rahul Gandhi meeting, will Congress supporters defend her now?

Rajya Sabha MP Renuka Chowdhary, or rather, her laughter is back in the ‘news’ again. Renuka Chowdhary was shot to media attention recently when she laughed hysterically during the Prime Minister’s speech and the PM joked that he had heard such a laughter for the first time after Ramayana serial. Renuka Chowdhary, according to reports has unleashed her laughter again. This time, however, it was in between a high-level party meeting called by Congress President Rahul Gandhi.

Here is a refreshing reminder of that laugh inside Rajya Sabha:

According to “reports”, recently Congress President Rahul Gandhi had held a high-level party meeting where Renuka, being a senior Congress leader, was also invited. Rahul was speaking about the grim situation the party is in currently. He of course had Pidi sitting quietly and patiently in his lap. He added that the party leaders would have to ‘give their best’ to overcome the hardships. Right then, Renuka Chowdhary laughed at full throttle, again. A Congress leader, on conditions of anonymity, has stated that Renuka’s laughter was met with by stunned silence by other attendees. Pidi too cocked his little head to the right and couldn’t believe what had just happened. The Congress President, seeing that reaction, reportedly sat down abruptly without finishing his talk. Renuka Chowdhary however, continued her famous laugh. She stopped it after some precious moments but it was too late.

Renuka soon realised her ‘mistake’ and came out of the meeting. But as per the anonymous Congress leader, Rahul baba has taken offence to the laughter. The Congress leaders have been pretty displeased and Rahul Gandhi has even hinted that Renuka should not be there in party meetings after it. In fact, we are told he might soon be taking a vacation just to get away from the haunting sounds of that thunderous laugh. Congress leaders have told us in confidence how Rahul’s eyes became bloodshot while he clutched on to Pidi for moral support. In fact, Rahul has planned a visit to see his naani just to get some solace from the crackling sounds that won’t let him sleep at night.

When Renuka Chowdhary laughed during the PM’s address the whole Congress supporting ecosystem jumped to her defence. They even hailed Surpanakha as the heroine of the tragic saga of misunderstood feminism. Here are some gems:

 

Feminist journalists asserted that as male parliamentarians are known to create a ruckus in the house, Renuka Chowdhary has all the right to laugh however loud she wants to when the PM is making a speech. Hail women power!

Congress’s own spokesperson stood up for Renuka’s right to cackle too.

Even the Congress party itself has condemned the PM’s jibe and called it derogatory. There were hosts of ‘feminist’ articles calling for a woman’s right to laugh and ‘patriarchy’s’ centuries-old attempt to suppress laughing women.

Will Renuka Chowdhary have the same kind of support this time around too? Many Congress leaders are blamed for being hypocritical. At least Renuka Chowdhary has shown now that her laughter does not discriminate. She has laughed on camera, press briefings, in Parliament and now even in between Rahul Gandhi’s meeting too. She sure is one fearless woman who laughs without hesitation or regard to any ‘rules’ and cultural impositions by the ‘patriarchal’ society. Woman power comes from laughing in between serious statements in important events. We could now just LLRC (laugh like Renuka Chowdhury) at the entire chain of events.
