After meeting with Congress president Sonia Gandhi in her office in Parliament to discuss the matter, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury made his views.

Congressman Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury said on Thursday that he had erred in calling President Droupadi Murmu “rashtrapatni” and that he would apologize to the President. But he attacked the BJP, declaring that he would not apologize to “these Pakistanis” (hypocrites).


Chowdhury admitted his error and said that because he is Bengali, he is not used to Hindi. He said that he just accidentally used the phrase once and that he never meant to belittle the President.


“I inadvertently used the word ‘rashtrapatni’ just once and it was a slip of the tongue. I never meant any disrespect to the President,” he told reporters outside Parliament, a day after making the remark. “What should I do? I said it and realized I uttered a wrong word. I even looked for media persons to request them to not focus on it. However, I couldn’t find them.”

The explanation was made while the BJP held up both Houses of Parliament and demanded that Sonia Gandhi, the head of the Congress, apologise to the country.

The Congress leader added that he had asked President Murmu for some time on Saturday and would apologize to her if his careless remarks had offended her. The BJP, according to Chowdhury, is making a “mountain out of a molehill” out of this problem.


After meeting with Congress president Sonia Gandhi in her office in Parliament to discuss the matter, Chowdhury made his statements.


The BJP on Thursday criticized the Congress for “demeaning the women and tribal of India” in response to the Congress MP’s “rashtrapatni” statement and sought an apology from Chowdhury.
