New Delhi : Samajwadi Party MP Azam Khan apologised in Lok Sabha on Monday for making sexist remarks against BJP MP Rama Devi.
“I had no malintent towards the Chair. Everyone in the House knows my speech and my conduct, but despite this, if the Chair feels that I made a mistake then I apologise for that,” Azam Khan said.
Speaker Om Birla told the House to give another chance to Khan, and accepted his apology, asking him not to repeat such things. Birla said, “Azam Khan has tendered an apology and all members must maintain decorum so that no such incident takes place in future.”
However, BJP MP Rama Devi refused to accept Azam Khan’s apology. She said, “Azam Khan’s behaviour has hurt the nation and its women. He has always made such remarks and never changed. His habit should change. He says whatever comes to his mouth, this needs to change.”
