Foul mouthed Azam Khan stirs row again, makes sexist comment in Lok Sabha
New Delhi, July 25 (IBNS): Controversial Samajwadi Party (SP) lawmaker Azam Khan on Thursday drew ire from the treasury benches over a comment directed at the then officiating Speaker Rama Devi.
It may be recalled that Azam made derregotary statement at Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s Jaya Prada during the recently concluded General Elections that drew the poll body's ire.
Rama Devi along with the NDA lawmakers asked Azam to apologise but he addressed Rama Devi as his "sister".
SP president Akhilesh Singh Yadav, sitting next to Azam, defended his colleague and lashed out at BJP calling the saffron outfit as 'badtameez'.
Speaker Om Prakash Birla, who was presiding at the time, told Akhilesh it was Azam who needed to apologise for using an unparliamentary word.
"It is very easy for all of you to demand 'expunge this, expunge that', but why should the need to expunge arise at all? Once a remark is made, it is already in the public domain. Therefore, we all should speak keeping the dignity of Parliament in mind," said the Speaker.
As Azam rose to speak on the "Triple Talaq" bill, the cries of "shame" became louder. All the Samajwadi members in the house then walked out in protest.
