SAD submits privilege notice against Jairam, Renuka

New Delhi, July 25 (IANS) A notice for a privilege motion against Congress leaders Jairam Ramesh and Renuka Choudhury was submitted by the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) in the Rajya Sabha on Monday, accusing them of misbehaving with Union minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal.

SAD’s Rajya Sabha MP Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa submitted the privilege notice and also took up the issue in the upper house on Monday morning.

On July 22, a private member’s bill on granting special status to Andhra Pradesh could not be taken up in the Rajya Sabha as members from the treasury benches were protesting against Aam Aadmi Party’s Lok Sabha MP Bhagwant Mann’s Facebook video.

Food Processing Minister Harsimrat Badal, who was present in the upper house, also sought permission to speak but was not allowed.

The upper house was adjourned later, after which Badal and the Congress leaders allegedly had an argument.

The minister wrote to Chairman M. Hamid Ansari, seeking stern action against the two Congress members.

Ramesh and Choudhury, however, denied the misbehaviour charge.

Harsimrat Badal had also written to the Rajya Sabha Chairman to seek “stern action” against Ramesh and Chaudhary, accusing the two Congress leaders of humiliating her in the house.
