New Delhi: After angry exchanges between Congress and BJP members over dragging Sonia Gandhi's name in the controversial AgustaWestland helicopter deal in Rajya Sabha, Subramanian Swamy on Wednesday taking a jibe at the UPA chairperson said that he will now address her with another name.
Taking to Twitter, where he is quite active among his followers, Swamy tweeted, “Pts may have seen how Congis regard speaking Sonia's name is unparliamentary and to be expunged!! Next time I will call her Tadakka.”

Swamy had raised the issue through an adjournment notice under Rule 267, his first intervention since he took oath in the House yesterday, and referred to the allegations made by Christian Michael, the middleman in the deal, through a letter in the High Court of Italy.
The naming of Gandhi led the Congress members to angrily storm into the Well, with a handful even moving closer to the treasury benches menacingly. Members of the treasury benches too got up on their seats to counter the opposition.
Fearing an ugly showdown, a couple of marshalls too stepped into the Well to act as a wall between the opposition and the ruling side.
Before things got out of hand, Deputy Chairman P J Kurien adjourned the House for 10 minutes.
