Trouble started when Banerjee was speaking on the Repealing and Amendment (Second) Bill, 2014 that was later passed by the house.

Banerjee made a reference to Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Rajiv Pratap Rudy, who had told him to address the chair.

"I expect the ministers, like Shri Rudy, to listen to us," Banerjee said. Bharatiya Janata Party member from Trinamool ruled West Bengal SS Ahluwalia sought to respond to Banerjee's remarks, triggering a verbal duel.

Deputy Speaker M Thambidurai sought to restore order and said unparliamentary remarks will not go on record.

"I am very sorry for what is going on. Whatever they have spoken, nothing will go on record," he said.

Later, Rudy hit out at Banerjee, saying "Sir, this is the first time he has the taste of his own pill because this is exactly what he has been doing in the house all through these days."

"My only submission was that he should address the chair and not the members. This is what I was trying to correct. He should learn through time how to perform in the house," Rudy said.
