New Delhi: A BJP member in Lok Sabha on Friday charged Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi of dancing with tribal women when the country was mourning the death of former President APJ Abdul Kalam, saying it was a “shameful” act.
Ramesh Bidhuri raised the issue when Congress members were protesting against the government, demanding sacking of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje over the Lalit Modi controversy.
He said it was “shameful” that a Congress Chief Minister was dancing when the nation was observing state mourning.
Bidhuri, however, did not take Gogoi's name and was supported by several of his party members, demanded a discussion on the issue.
However, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan ignored the demand.
Gogoi's son, Gaurav, was among the protesting Congress MPs who were in the Well and on the aisles.
Gogoi has already apologised for dancing with tribal girls of tea garden workers community at a function in Golaghat district of Assam on Wednesday when the nation was in mourning as a mark of respect to Kalam.
