Subramanian Swamy has filed a notice in the Rajya Sabha challenging the expunging of his comments by Deputy Chairman, calling the decision as arbitrary, unreasonable and against the House rules.
Rajya Sabha LOP Ghulam Nabi Azad said people from minorities communities are being attacked in country. Minorities Affairs Minister Najma Heptulla replied that members should not get emotional. We will verify facts and take action.
Swamy also moved breach of privilege proceedings against Leader of the Opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad for “falsely” saying that the UPA government had blacklisted Finmeccanica, the manufacturer of AgustaWestland choppers.
P.J. Kurien said that Chairman will examine the notice regarding breach of privilege and then take a further decision.
In Rajya Sabha ,Subramanian Swamy gave breach of privilege motion against Gulam Nabi Azad and protests by Congress MPs created ruckus in the house.
The BJP MP had made certain comments targeting Sonia Gandhi while speaking on the issue of minority institution and Rajya Sabha Deputy Dhairman P J Kurien expunged them following vociferous protests from the opposition MPs.
The Congress had warned not to allow him to speak until he apologises to the expunged comment on Sonia Gandhi while raising the AgustaWestland chopper scam in the House on Wednesday, and so they rose in protest when the nominated BJP leader tried to speak as soon as the Zero Hour began.
He had told Swamy that he was “unnecessarily provoking others” and asked him to refrain from it.
An unrelenting Swamy tweeted today, “I have filed a notice in the RS challenging the expunging of my words by the Dy Chairman since it is arbitrary, unreasonable and against the RS rules.”
In another tweet, he said, “Today I will seek to move a Breach of Privilege against Ghulam Nabi Azad for his falsely stating in the RS that the UPA had blacklisted Finmeccanica.”
Azad yesterday said Swamy is just two days old in the House and his remarks have already been expunged twice. “There are 365 days in a year, how many times are you going to expunge his words,” he asked the Chair.
The Congress leader said Swamy does not know the difference between street language and parliamentary words.
“He does not allow his hair to grey so he can learn and mature
