Backing Renuka Chowdhury, Congress spokesperson Anand Sharma had also said that the Prime Minister had crossed the line of political discourse with his language and the "outrageous" reference for which he should apologise. I heard the kind of indecent remarks she was making on PM Modi. In another tweet, he said, "Congress says it's a breach of privilege!" She lashed out at the PM after the latter referred her to a character in Ramayana.

Congress leader Renuka Chowdhury whom prime minister Narendra Modi made fun of on Wednesday for her loud laughter in the Rajya Sabha during his reply to the President's address, said on Thursday that she would move privilege notice against him. "I can't go to that extent", she added, branding the BJP and the Modi-led NDA government as anti-women. After the conclusion of the Rajya Sabha proceedings for the day, Renuka Chowdhury spoke to the media. She said she broke into a laugh when the PM credited the idea of Aadhaar to BJP veteran LK Advani.

Merely, a woman parliamentarian was laughing at his claims. what was alluded to (by Modi) is shameful.we condemn it. "We also urge the RS Speaker Shri Venkaiah Naidu to not act in a partisan manner and accord due respect to a fellow member of the house", it said.

Later, Chowdhury told mediapersons that the Prime Minister's jibe was anti-women. "Women security does not come only by saying words like "Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao", as all this sounds like hollow talk", he said.

"Let me remind them about a debate in the Rajya Sabha on July 7, 1998, LK Advani as Home Minister of the country said in reply to a question that a multi goal identity card will also be used for passport, driving licence and others". The whole house burst into laughter with Modi's comments.

Smiling broadly, Modi had requested Naidu not to restrain the Congress MP. "After the Ramayan serial, we got the privilege of hearing this kind of laughter only today".
