BJP leader and Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi has slammed TMC MP Derek O'Brien for his swipe at the government for passing bills in Parliament without discussion. Naqvi, accused and then accused O'Brien of conspiring to malign Parliament's dignity and quipped that he can have fish curry, if he's allergic to 'papri chaat'.
"If he is allergic to 'chaat-papri', he can have fish curry. But don't turn Parliament into a fish market. Unfortunately, the manner in which work is being done with conspiracy to malign Parliament's dignity, was never seen before," said Deputy Leader of the Rajya Sabha on O'Brien's tweet.
Earlier on Monday, O'Brien had criticised the GOVT for rushing bills through Parliament and asked if it was 'making papri chaat'. "In the first ten days, Modi-Shah rushed through and passed a dozen bills at an average time of under seven minutes per Bill. Passing legislation or making papri chaat?" he had tweeted.
Amid the continuous ruckus created by the Opposition over the 'Pegasus Project' issue, both the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha Centre have cleared many bills. The two Houses have been witnessing protests from the Opposition since the start of the monsoon session on July 19.
