Aiyar hurts, Shukla apologizes

 

Rajya Sabha members belonging to various parties raised objections to reported comments of Mani Shankar Aiyar comparing MPs with animals.

 

An apparently embarrassed Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Rajiv Shukla tendered an immediate apology on behalf of Aiyar and informed the House that he will talk to him in this regard.

As members pressed for summoning the Congress member and referring the matter to the Ethics Committee of Parliament, Deputy Chairman P J Kurien hoped he will come and explain his position in the House.

He said, "If that does not happen, then there is a course of action...The Chair will examine the matter."

Earlier raising the matter soon after Question Hour, members of BJP, SP, BSP and Left parties were on their feet condemning Aiyar's remarks and demanding action against him.

Aiyar, during a television debate on logjam in Parliament on FDI, had reportedly made the remarks.

As members attacked the ruling party over Aiyar's remarks, Shukla sought to pacify them saying, "It is not a good thing. If he has said so then in my opinion it is totally inappropriate. I will talk to him and if he apologises, it will be good."

This was objected to by Naresh Agrawal (SP), who demanded an apology from Aiyar minus any ifs and buts..."If he does not apologise then action should be taken against him," he said.

Shukla said, "First of all, I apologise if he has made any such remarks...I will tell him to come and apologise to members if he has said so."

Kurien also said that since Aiyar is not present in the House, he should be given an opportunity to come and explain what he said.
