New Delhi, Feb 9: Congress leader Renuka Chowdhury on Friday filed a privilege motion in the Rajya Sabha against Union Minister of State (MoS) for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju over an objectionable video. 

Reacting to a video shared by Rijiju, Chowdhary yesterday had said this is highly objectionable, and I am going to file for the privilege.

Rijiju on Thursday posted a video with the caption: “Despite such vexatious laugh by Renuka Chaudhary ji PM Narendra Modi ji didn’t get irritated”.

Prior to this on February 7, the Union Minister of State for Home had shared a video of hysterical laughter by mythological character ‘Surpanakha’ linking Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s comment on Congress leader Renuka Chowdhary in Rajya Sabha.

Rijiju later, clarified that he was “only referring to how PM didn’t get annoyed.”
