On the instruction of party president JP Nadda, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has issued a show-cause notice to party MP Ramesh Bidhuri for his use of improper language against BSP MP Danish Ali, according to sources. The comments Bidhuri made during the Lok Sabha debate on the Chandrayan-3 Mission have been removed because they were offensive to certain communities.
Danish Ali, a member of the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), wrote to Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla about BJP MP Ramesh Bidhuri’s remarks about minorities in the Lok Sabha, calling them “heartbreaking” for him as a minority member. “I write to you with deep anguish regarding the speech given in Lok Sabha by an MP of the BJP Ramesh Bidhuri during the discussion on Chandrayaan’s success,” MP Danish Ali writes in a letter.
“During the course of his speech he directed the most foul abusive invectives against me which are part of the record of the Lok Sabha,” he added.
As a minority member of this great country and an elected member of Parliament, he wrote, “This is most unfortunate and the fact that it has happened in a new parliament building under your leadership as Speaker is truly heartbreaking for me.”
