Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury uses derogatory slang for European delegation that visited JK, calls them ‘kiraye ke tattu’

Speaking in the Lower house of the parliament, Chowdhury slammed the government for barring Indian members of parliament from visiting Jammu and Kashmir while facilitating the visit of European delegation.

Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha, senior Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury today used derogatory remarks against the European parliament members who had recently visited Jammu and Kashmir to review the situation after the abrogation of Article 370. Chowdhury said that the European delegation that visited Kashmir were all “kiraye ke tattu (hired hacks)”.

The derogatory remarks used by Ranjan was opposed by some members of parliament. Lok Sabha speaker Om Birla said he would examine if the remarks needed to be expunged from the proceedings.

Speaking in the Lower house of the parliament, Chowdhury slammed the government for barring Indian members of parliament from visiting Jammu and Kashmir while facilitating the visit of European delegation. “Our leaders were not allowed to go there. Rahul Gandhi was stopped. Several other MPs were prevented from visiting Kashmir. Labourers are dying there. Army men are dying,” he said.

Chowdhury was speaking in the Zero Hour during which he termed it an “atrocity” to not allow former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah to attend the Lok Sabha proceedings.

A 28-member delegation of European parliamentarians had recently visited Jammu and Kashmir and interacted with the Jammu and Kashmir administration including the governor, and members of the civil society following the abrogation of Article 370 and subsequent bifurcation of the state into union territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.
