Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla has taken BJP MP Ramesh Bidhudi’s controversial statement in Parliament ‘seriously’ and warned of ‘stern action’ on any repeat of such behavior in future.
During a debate on the ‘success of Chandrayaan-3’ in the Lok Sabha on Thursday, Bidhudi made a controversial remark targeting Bahujan Samaj Party MP Kunwar Danishali.
After that, there was an uproar in the Parliament and the opposition leaders demanded action against the BJP MP from South Delhi, Ramesh Bidhudi.
Officials said the Speaker warned Bharatiya Janata Party MP Bidhudi that strict action would be taken against him if such behavior was repeated in future.
According to a report by news agency PTI, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh, who was present in Parliament after Bidhudi’s remarks, expressed regret over the incident.
Reacting to the matter, Bahujan Samaj Party MP Danishali said, “I hope that justice will be done to me and the Speaker will take action. If this does not happen, I will consider leaving Parliament with a heavy heart.”
Meanwhile, news agency ANI and PTI have reported in their reports that a show cause notice has been issued to MP Ramesh Bidhudi on the direction of BJP President JP Nadda for using unparliamentary language against Danishali.
In this video, when Ramesh Bidhudi was speaking objectionable words, BJP MP Doctor Harsh Vardhan was seen sitting behind him and smiling.
Some people on social media have also objected to his behavior.

Who is Bidhudi who used profanity in Parliament?
Born in Tughalabad, Delhi, Bidhudi was brought up and educated in Delhi.
In an interview, he said that his father had donated his land for a school, Arya Samaj temple and hospital in the village.
He came in contact with Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad through the student politics of Bhagat Singh College, Delhi University in the 80s.
Bidhudi and his family are active members of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh.
Bidhudi’s political career began as a student.
He has been actively involved in politics since 1993. He was an MLA in the Delhi Legislative Assembly from 2003 to May 2014.
In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Ramesh Bidhudi defeated Aam Aadmi Party’s Raghav Chadha and Congress candidate and boxing champion Vijender Singh.
Ramesh Bidhudi is a BJP MP since 2014. He has been elected from South Delhi Lok Sabha on BJP ticket in 2014 and 2019.
Meanwhile, Congress leader Jairam Ramesh told news agency ANI, “Whatever he (Bidhudi) said to Danishali is highly reprehensible. Defense Minister Rajnath Singh’s apology is not enough. Such language should not be used inside or outside the House.”
“Prime Minister Narendra Modi says that the new parliament started with women’s power but it started with Ramesh Bidhudi. This is not Ramesh Bidhudi’s idea but Bharatiya Janata Party’s idea. We demand that Ramesh Bidhudi’s membership should be revoked.”
Controversy and Controversy
He is a businessman by profession and during the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, he declared his wealth to be Rs 18 crore.
A case under IPC section 323, 34, 500, 502 has been registered against him. They state that their main source of income is trade and rental income.
It is not the first time that his name has come up in a controversy. In 2017, he raised the issue of Sonia Gandhi’s Italian origin to attack the Congress.
During a public meeting in Mathura, he said, “In Italy, there is such a ritual that within five-seven months of marriage, even grandchildren are born. There is no such ritual in Indian culture.”
However, later he gave a statement clarifying this statement.
He said, “Acche Din cannot be accounted for before the completion of our five-year tenure.”
Bidhudi said this in response to the criticism of the Congress that even after two and a half years of forming the government, the BJP government has not fulfilled its promises.
Bidhudi has previously been accused of making ‘unparliamentary and indecent’ comments inside Parliament.
A Muslim MP’s religious identity was targeted in the Lok Sabha on Thursday, while earlier four women MPs had approached the Speaker and complained about his alleged ‘behaviour’.
The incident took place on August 4, 2015. Ranjit Ranjan, Sushmita Dev, Arpita Ghosh and PK Smiti Teach accused Bidhudi of using ‘vulgar and profanity’ language.
However, Bidhudi denied these allegations.
He told the English newspaper Economic Times in this matter that, “I have no personal fight with him and I have not used such language. They are using such ways to divert attention. They are taking advantage of being a woman.”
BJP leader Dr. Harsh Vardhan’s statement
In this video, while Ramesh Bidhudi was using the catastrophic words, BJP MP Dr. Harsh Vardhan was also seen sitting behind him and smiling.
Some people on social media expressed their dismay about this. Harsh Vardhan has been questioned.
Now Dr. Harshvardhan wrote on social media platform X, “I saw my name trending on Twitter. My name is being thrown in the case of two MPs using unparliamentary language against each other in the Lok Sabha.”
“Our senior leader Rajnath Singh has already condemned the use of unforgivable language by both sides,” he said.
Dr. Harshvardhan wrote, “I want to ask my Muslim friends who wrote against me on social media, do they really think I can be with someone who uses language that hurts the sensibilities of certain communities?”
He says, “They are trying to spoil my image. In my political career of 30 years, I have worked with millions of Muslim brothers and sisters. My childhood was also spent playing sports with my Muslim friends in Phatak Telia area of Chandni Chowk.”
He says, “I won the Chandni Chowk Lok Sabha election and it would have been impossible if all the communities had not supported me. I am sorry that people are putting my name in this. The truth is, I couldn’t quite hear what was actually being said over the noise. I live my life with principles.”
