New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday (September 22) issued a show cause notice to party member and Lok Sabha MP Ramesh Bidhuri on instruction of party president JP Nadda. The notice was issued for the use of unparliamentary language used by MP Bhiduri against BSP MP Danish Ali.

BJP MP Ramesh Bidhuri made the remarks in the Lok Sabha on Thursday (September 21) while discussion was underway on Chandrayaan-3. After his objectionable comments, in which he called the BSP MP a "pimp", "terrorist" and "extremist", Opposition MPs demanded action against the BJP MP.

Following uproar over the highly objectionable remarks made by BJP MP Ramesh Bidhuri, BSP MP Danish Ali the latter wrote a letter to Lok Sabha speaker Om Birla and complained against the slurs hurled at him inside the House. "That it has happened in a new Parliament building under your leadership as Speaker is truly heartbreaking for me as an elected Member Of Parliament," said Danish Ali.

In his letter, Danish Ali mentioned how derogatory words were used against him inside the Parliament in the Lok Sabha while discussion was underway on Chandrayaan-3 success. Danish Ali expressed his disappointment at the incident and asked the Lok Sabha speaker that the matter be referred to Lok Sabha's Privileges Committee.

"I request you to refer this matter to the committee of privileges under rule 227 of the rules of procedure and conduct of business in Lok Sabha for examination, investigation, and Report," he said in his letter.
