The incident has taken everyone by shock and reactions are pouring from across party lines.

Congress leader Jairam Ramesh called the event shameful. “[It is a] complete shame what Bhiduri said,” Ramesh told reporters. 

He attacked Rajnath Singh’s apology and said “Rajnath Singh’s apology is not acceptable. It was a halfhearted apology…it is an eyewash.”

“Bhiduri has spoken in a language that is an insult not just to parliament but to every Indian,” Ramesh added. 

TMC MP Mahua Moita also condemned the incident in a tweet. She wrote “BJP MP @rameshbidhuri calling MP Danish Ali a “Bharwa” (pimp), “Katwa” (circumcised), “Mullah Atankwadi” & “Mullah Ugrawadi” ON RECORD in Lok Sabha last night. Keeper of Maryada @ombirlakota Vishwaguru @narendramodi & BJP Prez @JPNadda along with GodiMedia- any action please?”
