New Delhi: Senior Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury has apologized to President Draupadi Murmu over the word ‘national wife’.He wrote a letter to the President on Friday apologizing to him. In his letter, he said that those words had come out of me by mistake.
And I will not be wrong if I say that my tongue slipped.
Let us tell you that there was a lot of ruckus in the Parliament regarding Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury’s statement of ‘national wife’.
The leaders of the ruling party were demanding from the Congress leader that he should apologize to the President for his statement.
Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury had
a special conversation with a few days ago regarding the controversy over his objectionable statement about the President.
During that time he had said that first of all I would like to say that BJP is making rice a mountain.
The work inside the house has come to a standstill. We are demanding a discussion on inflation.
There are agitations in the House on the issue of unemployment.
We want discussion in the house regarding Agneepath outside also.
ED wants to talk about misuse of CBI.
We are continuously making demands in the House,for this we felt that let’s meet the President once and have our say.
She is the supreme of the country and the supreme of the house, whether it is Lok Sabha or Rajya Sabha. We come here only on his call.
We tried to march from Vijay Chowk towards him ie Rashtrapati Bhavan, during which we were taken into custody.
When we are agitating,at that time a journalist asked where we want to go,
then we said that we want to go to the President,’Rashtrapati’ came out of my mouth.It’s a mistake.
I am a Bengali Indian man, I am not a Hindi speaker,I have lost my mind,there was no mistake in our intention,
he is in the highest position of the country, we respect him.
Today in the House also we were not given a chance to express our views.
The ruling party accuses me and stalls the house.
Adhir Ranjan had further said that you only tell that the leader of our party is a woman herself,if we cannot respect women,
then how do we go after listening to our party president.
They allege, okay,but I too have the right to answer.Charges were unilaterally leveled against me in the House.
I appealed to the Speaker that I should be given a chance to speak, the Speaker gave me a chance to answer,
the Speaker had also given permission to speak, but the ruling party did not give us a chance to speak.
The Finance Minister, whose darshan was not available,is coming to the House today and accusing me and has started all
this against me to avenge what a minister did in Goa.
He further said that I have said not once but a hundred times that a mistake has been made, what to do, mistake can be done by a person,
I am Bengali, Hindi is not my mother tongue.
If despite this our President feels bad, then I will go and meet him. I will explain to them, I will talk, I will try.
