New Delhi: Congress parliamentarian Renuka Chowdhury on Friday moved a privilege motion in the Rajya Sabha against Union Minister Kiren Rijiju for sharing a video of Prime Minister Narendra Modi mocking her laughter in the Rajya Sabha.

Rijiju had captioned the tweet as "Despite such vexatious laugh by Renuka Chaudhary ji PM Narendra Modi ji didn't get irritated."

Furious over the post, Renuka said, "This is degrading to a woman and highly objectionable."

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday hurled a ‘Ramayana’ jibe at Renuka Chowdhury, who broke out in a loud laughter during his speech on Motion of Thanks to the President’s Address.

Modi asked the Chairman of the Rajya Sabha, M Venkaiah Naidu — who not only chided the Congress member for “loose and unruly behaviour” but also advised her to visit a doctor if she has a problem — not to  stop her as it was after ages that one had the opportunity to hear “such a laughter” after the serial Ramayana.
