Lok Sabha proceedings were adjourned till noon following uproar over Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhary’s remarks on President Droupadi Murmu.

The BJP has accused the Congress of “demeaning” President Droupadi Murmu and demanded its apology after its leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury called her “rashtrapatni”.

Union minister Smriti Irani said Chowdhury used the term knowing well that it demeans Murmu and her office and is against India’s values.

This is an insult to the tribal people of the country & the President of India. He should immediately apologize. Sonia Gandhi should also apologize for appointing someone like him, Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi told ANI

The Congress should apologise to the President and the country, she told reporters. “A tribal woman from a poor family who created history is being continuously demeaned by the Congress,” she told reporters.

“He has already apologised,” Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi was quoted as saying on party’s Adhir Chowdhury’s ‘Rashtrapatni’ remark against President Droupadi Murmu.

Under fire, Adhir told reporters outside parliament , “There is no question of apologising. I had mistakenly said ‘Rashtrapatni’…the ruling party in a deliberate design trying to make mountain out of a molehill”
