On February 7, 2023, Ram Mohan Naidu Kinjarapu presented his remarks during the Motion of Thanks on the President’s Address in Lok Sabha. As per the uncorrected discussion text available on Lok Sabha’s website, Mahua Moitra, a Trinamool Congress leader, was heard using abusive language inside the Parliament. Several members of the Parliament objected to the language and demanded an apology from her. The Chairperson mentioned that none of her statements would go on record and asked the Leader of the Party concerned and the Minister of Parliamentary Affairs to consult and take an appropriate decision. The video of Mahua using abusive language inside the Parliament went viral on social media and netizens criticised her. Following the uproar, Mahua went on an unhinged rant on social media. This is not the first time Moitra has made headlines for the wrong reasons. From derogatory remarks against Maa Kali to making bizarre statements on social media, the lawmaker, who is much-loved by the liberal media, is often in the news for creating controversies.
