New Delhi: A day after President Pranab Mukherjee's son and Congress MP Abhijeet Mukherjee drew flak for his ‘dented and painted’ remark, the Congress on Friday ruled out any action against him.

Congress spokesperson Rashid Alvi said that there would be no action against Abhijeet Mukherjee for his remarks.

"He has realised it himself and apologised. Where is the scope for action," Congress spokesperson Rashid Alvi told reporters.

Abhijeet who represents Jangipur constituency, which President Pranab Mukherjee had vacated before the presidential election, had described women protesting against the Delhi gang-rape incident as people from the fashionable set.

Latter on owning complete responsibility, he issued an unconditional apology and withdrew his comments following angry reactions from across the country including family and partymen.
