BJP demands apology from two Congress MPs for their “threatening posture” towards Smriti Irani during debate on Unnao rape

BJP leaders accused Congress MPs Dean Kuriakose and TN Prathapan of rushing towards Irani when she was speaking in the House.

The BJP on Friday accused two of the Congress MPs in the lower house of parliament for “threatening posturing” while the BJP minister Smriti Irani was speaking about the Unnao rape case. The party has demanded an apology from the MPs for the same.

Smriti Irani asserted that she was chastised by a Congress MP for aggressively speaking in the Lok Sabha. She also claimed that some male MPs came towards her rolling up their sleeves and one other MP asked why did she speak at all.

Earlier, responding to Congress’ Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury’s remark- “Sita is being burnt while plans are afoot to build a Ram temple”, BJP minister Smriti Irani lambasted the opposition for politicising and communalising the issue of setting ablaze the Unnao rape victim.

“The shameful way in which the Congress leaders have politically connected the issues of women’s respect and security to communalism is unprecedented. Yes, it is condemnable. Setting afire a woman, rape and killing a woman is inhuman but don’t politicise the issue. Why are leaders from Bengal passing comments on heinous crimes in Hyderabad and Unnao conspicuously silent on the Malda case?” Smriti asked.

However, this did not sit well with a few Congress ministers who boldly charged towards Smriti Irani while she was rebutting Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury’s assertions. BJP leaders accused Congress MPs Dean Kuriakose and TN Prathapan of rushing towards Irani when she was speaking in the House.

When the House broke for lunch, the Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi denounced the unruly behaviour espoused by some of the MPs and asked for their apology.”This is the most condemnable behaviour. They came in a threatening position when she (Smriti Irani) was speaking. She is a lady member of the house. It is most uncalled and they should apologise.”

Another BJP leader, Meenakshi Lekhi, too sought an apology for the threatening behaviour of the Congress MPs and asked Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury to get his MPs to apologise in the House.
