RS chairman Venkaiah Naidu expunges remarks made by PM
The remarks made by the prime minister while referring to the opposition's candidate B K Hariprasad for the post of Rajya Sabha deputy chairman were expunged after some members made a demand in this regard, according to the Rajya Sabha Secretariat.
Chairman Naidu had yesterday said in the House that he will look into the remarks and see if there was something objectionable.
Remarks made by the prime minister are rarely expunged.
Hariprasad said it was unfortunate that the prime minister had lowered the dignity of the House.
The chairman also expunged a word uttered by Union Minister Ramdas Athawale during the felicitations.
