Samajwadi Party MP Azam Khan to appear before Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla over his remarks against BJP MP Rama Devi in the Parliament.
Samajwadi Party MP Azam Khan will appear before Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla on Monday and tender an unconditional apology in the House for his “sexist” remarks against BJP member Rama Devi.
In a meeting of floor leaders of all parties chaired by the Lok Sabha Speaker, it was decided that if he does not do so, the Speaker has been authorised to take action against him.
Earlier on Friday, members, cutting across party lines, condemned Khan’s remarks and demanded “exemplary action” against him. Rama Devi has said he should be suspended for the entire five years from Lok Sabha.
