Taking political discourse to a new nadir, Congress MP from West Bengal and now the leader of the Congress party in Lok Sabha, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury used an obnoxious analogy to attack PM Narendra Modi. Chowdhury compared PM Modi to ‘gandi naali’ while replying to the Motion of Thanks moved by Pratap Singh Sarangi.

In an offence launched by Chowdhury against the BJP, he insulted the Prime Minister with his objectionable remarks. Taking a swipe at the PM, Chowdhury said there was no comparison between Indira Gandhi and Narendra Modi. He further added that “Ganga and gandi naali (dirty drain) can’t be compared”, to which members of the ruling party protested and demanded that his words be expunged.
The speaker pacified the worked up ruling party members saying if any unparliamentary word was used by Chowdhury it would be expunged from the record.
Responding to the motion of thanks moved by Pratap Singh Sarangi, Chowdhury drew the attention on the water crisis in the country and the deaths of children due to encephalitis in Bihar. He also alleged that the leaders of the ruling party were now indulging in worshipping Narendra Modi.
In a blistering attack, Chowdhury dared the Prime Minister to take action against Congress president Rahul Gandhi and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi. “Did you succeed to catch anybody in 2G and coal allocation scam? Did you manage to send Sonia Gandhiji and Rahul Gandhiji behind the bars? You came to power by calling them thieves, then how are they sitting in Parliament? Why are not they in jail?” he questioned.
Chowdhury however, apologized after his controversial remarks created an uproar stating that his Hindi was not good.
In addition to this, Chowdhury also put forth a bizarre demand in the parliament suggesting that Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman’s moustache be declared as ‘national moustache.’
