'Slip of tongue': Adhir in written apology to Murmu on 'Rashtrapatni' remark

Yesterday war of words had ensued between the ruling party and Congress with Union Minister Smriti Iran expressing anguish over Chowdhury's remarks, seeking apology from him and Congress chief Sonia Gandhi.

Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury has tendered a written apology to President Droupadi Murmu for his 'Rashtrapatni' remark saying that it was a slip of tongue. Expressing his regret, the Congress MP said he mistakenly used an incorrect word for the position she holds.

On Thursday, war of words had ensued between the ruling party and Congress with Union Minister Smriti Irani expressing anguish over Chowdhury's remarks, seeking apology from him and Congress chief Sonia Gandhi. The latter in response told her to speak to Chowdhury directly.

The Lok Sabha on Thursday witnessed noisy scenes after BJP members strongly protested against Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury's remark on President Droupadi Murmu.

Irani claimed that Chowdhury has disrespected the entire tribal community, women, poor and the downtrodden by his remark adding that such humiliation of Murmu will not be tolerated by the poor, tribals and women of the country.
