Congressional leaders, Pralhad Joshi, meet with the LS speaker after the protest

NEW DELHI: Lok sabha He held separate meetings with leaders and the Union minister on Friday following a meeting in the House on comments made by BJP deputy Harsh Vardhan against Rahul Gandhi.

Gandhi and Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury were the leaders of Congress who met with Birla.

Lok sabha proceedings were adjourned during the Question Hour this morning after Harsh Vardhan "condemned" Gandhi's "outlandish" statement that the youth will beat up Prime Minister Narendra Modi with sticks.

Vardhan said that while answering Gandhi's question, he would first read the statement. This led to the uproar.
