New Delhi: AIADMK MP A. Navaneethakrishnan on Wednesday stole the show during a debate in the Rajya Sabha by presenting a beautiful rendition of a Tamil song picturized in the Valley from an old Tamilian movie.
Wednesday's debate in parliament was on the prevailing situation in Kashmir following the killing of militant Burhan Wani.
Though leaders like Ghulam Nabi Azad and Karan Singh, who hail from the State, expressed concern, the AIADMK MP's speech and song stole the show.
The MP displayed his crooning skills in the Upper House with a rendition of yesteryear Tamil film song 'Kashmir Beautiful Kashmir' sung by T.M.
“The song raised some chuckles in the House, especially from Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad,” the Hindu reported on Thursday.
When Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairperson P.J. Kurien was willing to allot more time so that he could sing the full song, Navaneethakrishnan passed the buck onto his party colleague Maithreyan, who was seen smiling.
The AIADMK touched upon many topics to establish the Tamil Nadu-Kashmir connect right from Tamil movies shot in Kashmir to Kashmiris visiting his state.
He even shared a 'secret' — that his mother, like many pregnant women in Tamil Nadu, took Kashmir saffron to "give birth to beautiful babies."
"My wife took it. My daughter-in-law took it, my granddaughter will also have it," the Hindu quoted him as saying.
"Kashmir to Kanyakumari, India is one. I too belong to Kashmir, Kashmir belongs to me," he roared amidst thumping applause, the report added.
