Ask sharpest of questions in Parliament, but allow govt to respond: PM to MPs, parties | India News

NEW DELHI: Prime Minster Narendra Modi on Monday said that it should make us proud that several women, people belonging to the SC, ST and OBC communities have taken oath as Union ministers.
The PM made these comments while introducing newly inducted Union ministers in the Lok Sabha. The PM’s speech was disrupted by slogan shouting from opposition members.
“It seems some people cannot digest that more women, SC, ST and OBC community members are becoming ministers,” PM Modi said amid ruckus in the Lok Sabha.
