Union Minister Smriti Irani as we speak questioned why a lady member of Parliament can’t be addressed as a woman.
Her remarks got here after Congress’s Adhir Ranjan Chaudhary and Sougata Ray of Trinamool Congress objected to Ms Irani referring to Geetha Viswanath Vanga of the YSRCP as a woman member throughout the Query Hour within the Lok Sabha.
They stated the minister ought to have addressed her as an “honourable member”, to which Ms Irani stated no matter she stated was not unparliamentary and referring to a lady member as a woman was not incorrect.
“I’ve taken no disrespect to her presence within the Home,” Ms Irani stated.
The BJD’s Anubhav Mohanty stood up in assist of Ms Irani, saying she has not used any unparliamentary or derogatory or incorrect phrase.
