Nashik: In an informal remark which might lead to a controversy, Nationalist Congress Party MP Supriya Sule said that Parliamentarians discuss clothes in the house while important discussions are underway.
"When I go to the Parliament, I hear the first speech, then a second and then a third. And in the fourth speech the speaker repeats what the earlier three spoke. And if you ask me what the fourth speaker said, I really can't remember anything. Parliamentarians also discuss where the other got their sari from while discussions on national issues are on," she said.
Sule added that like school students, parliamentarians, too, sometimes get bored after listening to lengthy lectures and debates in the House and discuss other topics among themselves.
"You students sometimes get bored after sitting through lectures and then start talking about actress Deepika Padukone and her looks in 'Bajirao Mastani', similarly, in Parliament too, when your MPs get bored after listening to lengthy debates, they discuss other topics among themselves," the daughter of NCP chief Sharad Pawar said, evoking peals of laughter among the girl students at the event.
