mallikarjun kharge takes jibe at bjp after india s oscar wins  says please don t take credit

Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge took a jibe at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) while speaking in Rajya Sabha today on India’s glory at the Oscars. Rajya Sabha MPs congratulated the makers of Naatu Naatu, the chartbuster from SS Rajamauli’s film RRR and the Tamil documentary The Elephant Whisperers for winning two Oscars.


Congratulating the makers of Naatu Naatu for winning Oscar for Best Original Song and The Elephant Whisperers for winning Oscar for Best Documentary Short Film, Kharge said it is a matter of great pride for India. Taking a dig at the ruling BJP, he said they should not say Prime Minister Narendra Modi has directed the film.

Congress chief said his request is that the ruling party should not take credit that they have directed, they have written the poem, or Modi Ji has directed this film. They should not say that is only my request. It is the contribution of the country, he added.

Not just the opposition members but also the treasury benches laughed in response to the comments. Jagdeep Dhankhar, the vice president and chairman of the Rajya Sabha, and Piyush Goyal, the leader of the House, were also seen laughing. Dr. S. Jaishankar, minister of external affairs, Mansukh Mandaviya, minister of health, and Bhupender Yadav, minister of labour, were seen smiling too.


Earlier during the proceedings, Jagdeep Dhankhar expressed that the 95th Academy Awards was a moment of glory for us.

The wins for The Elephant Whisperers and RRR mark a new recognition of the full spectrum of cinema that India produces, he added.

Samajwadi Party (SP) MP Jaya Bachchan said she was happy that the House was discussing the most important ambassadors of the country, the film fraternity.
