22 September (ANI), New Delhi, India: Ramesh Bidhuri, an MP for the Bharatiya Janata Party, made racial slurs against Danish Ali, the leader of the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), in the Lok Sabha on Thursday. The opposition leaders expressed their outrage and demanded harsh action against him on Friday.

The statements made by Bidhuri during the Lok Sabha’s consideration of the Chandrayan-3 Mission have been removed.


According to sources, Ramesh Bidhuri was warned after Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla took notice of his comments.

If there is another incident, they threatened to take harsh measures against the BJP MP. BJP member Bihduri represents South Delhi.

Jairam Ramesh, a senior of the Congress party, vehemently denounced Bidhuri’s comments and requested his dismissal from the Lok Sabha.

“Ramesh Bidhuri stated some really offensive things against Danish Ali. It becomes less as it receives more criticism. The apology from Rajnath Singh, the defence minister, is inadequate. Such profanity has never crossed my ears. Both within and outside of the Parliament, this language is inappropriate. Ramesh told ANI, “This is an insult to all of us, not just Danish Ali.

He said that Bidhuri’s statements “show intention” on the part of the BJP and called for the worst punishment possible.

“The beginning of the new Parliament has been done by Bidhuri and his words. This shows the intentions of BJP. What Bidhuri is saying is BJP’s intention…I think this is a fit case for suspension and the strictest punishment should be taken against him,” Ramesh said.

National Conference leader Omar Abdullah strongly objected to Bidhuri’s remarks and said “we are habitual of hearing it”.

“Those words were used against the whole Muslim community. I can’t understand how can Muslims associated with the BJP tolerate this? This shows what they think about Muslims…They should be ashamed,” Abdullah said.

RJD MP Manoj Jha said he is “saddened but not surprised” at Bidhuri’s remarks.

“This is the truth of PM’s ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’. We need to think that if such words were used for an MP in Parliament, then to what kind of language against Muslims, Dalits legitimacy is been given? Till now, the PM could not say a word on Ramesh Bidhuri,” Jha said.

West Bengal Minister and TMC leader Shashi Panja also slammed Bidhuri.

“BJP MP Ramesh Bidhuri uttered derogatory insulting remarks against a fellow MP in House yesterday. Does this not affect the respect of the House? TMC condemns this kind of parliamentary behaviour,” she said. (ANI)
