Senior Congress leader Renuka Chowdhury was laughing continuously at upper house during Prime Minister’s speech on Wednesday despite repeated warnings from Chairman Venkaiah Naidu. Responding to this adamant behavior of Chowdhury, Prime Minister had said that he was having the privilege of hearing such a laughter for the first time after culmination of Ramayana TV serial. “Chairman sir, I request you to not say anything to Renukaji. After Ramayan serial, we have got the privilege of hearing this kind of laughter today,” said Prime Minister. The entire house bursted in laughter after Prime Minister’s little jibe .
The video of Prime Minister’s remark is going viral on the internet since, as people in social media are comparing the laughter of Renuka Chowdhury with that of demoness Surpanakha in Ramayana serial. However Prime Minister himself did not make comparisons with any specific character.
Meanwhile Renuka Chowdhury in her defense has alleged that Prime Minister denigrated the status of a woman with his comment. “PM made a personal remark, what else do you expect from him? I can’t fall to that level to reply to him. This is actually called denigrating the status of a woman,” she said.
