Lalu slams Naidu for calling Prabha Thakur `bewakoof`
Rashtriya Janata Dal president Lalu Prasad Yadav slammed BJP leader M Venkaiah Naidu for calling Congress Rajya Sabha MP from Rajasthan Prabha Thakur a `bewakoof`.
New Delhi: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) president Lalu Prasad Yadav on Thursday slammed Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader M Venkaiah Naidu for calling Congress Rajya Sabha MP from Rajasthan Prabha Thakur a `bewakoof`.
Lalu’s reaction came after Thakur broke down in tears outside Parliament allegedly over Naidu’s comment.
“This is the real face of the BJP and the Sangh,” said Yadav while slamming Naidu.
Meanwhile, Thakur said when she asked BJP about Purti companies, Naidu said, “Kaise bewakoof Parliament mein aa gaye hain.” Naidu has apologised to Thakur after the uproar.
The Rajya Sabha was adjourned briefly following an uproar in the House after Naidu used the disparaging word to describe the members sitting on the treasury benches.
The word used by Naidu was expunged by Deputy Chairman PJ Kurien, but his prompt action failed to pacify the ruling members.
Kurien then adjourned the House for 10 minutes.
The Upper House was debating the government decision to allow foreign direct investment in multi-brand retail.
