As remarks against a woman member were not perceived merely as a joke, BJP hit back asking the grand old party to apologise for interrupting the prime minister's speech.

While replying to the motion of thanks on the president's address, Modi said that the Congress keeps saying we brought Aadhaar. She lashed out at the PM after the latter referred her to a character in Ramayana. "The Prime Minister is silent on that, which is again not only obnoxious, outrageous but condemnable". "Despite such (a) vexatious laugh by Renuka Chaudhary, the PM didn't get irritated", he added. "I personally feel that this attitude and comment in the Upper House of Parliament belittles the office of the PM and amounts to an insult to each and every woman in the country", Ms. Dev said.
