Terming the comments against the Prime Minister as "very unfortunate", BJP also questioned Congress what it wanted as it sides with Trinamool Congress in "disrupting" the Upper House while talking of staging protests against Mamata Banerjee in West Bengal.
    
"We would demand a kind of comment at least, I don't think she will ever condemn it, as to how does she react over the most demaning, shameful and condemnatory comments made by her own MP inside the House on Wednesday about a very popular Prime Minister of India," Telecom Minister and senior BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad said.

On the use of words by a Congress MP who was later named and suspended from the House, Prasad said "it is very unfortunate. The kind of words used in the House, we condemn them strongly."

Parliamentary Affairs Minister M Venkaiah Naidu accused Congress of "misusing" the parliamentary forum and said "this cannot be allowed".

Accusing Congress of being uncertain about its political future, Prasad said that due to this its members were making such uncalled-for comments.
    
"Congress party is absolutely in a state of political uncertainty and was making uncalled for political reactions in the only forum they have got in the Rajya Sabha," he said.

Naidu said the government was ready to accommodate the opposition by walking an extra mile but he does not understand the problem of the opposition.
    
"What is the problem of the opposition, I don't understand. I will go an extra mile to accommodate the opposition. I am ready to give them anything, except power, because that the public has given to us after what they did all these years," he said.
