Harsimrat Badal says Renuka Chowdhury, Jairam Ramesh misbehaved with me, threatens to move privilege notice


New Delhi: Union minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal on Friday threatened to move a privilege motion against senior Congress leaders Renuka Chowdhury and Jairam Ramesh for allegedly misbehaving with her in the Rajya Sabha.

The Minister said after the House was adjourned following uproar by the BJP and other parties over the issue, the Congress leaders misbehaved with her. After the proceedings of the House were adjourned there was a verbal clash between Ms Chaudhury and Ms Badal. ”Renuka Chaudhury came and fought with me. You cannot talk to a Minister in this manner,” Ms Badal told reporters outside Parliament.

The Minister alleged that the Congress MPs did not allow her to speak in the Upper House when she tried to raise the matter. Talking to newspersons, she said she would move a privilege motion against the two Congress Parliamentarians for allegedly misbehaving with her.
