Agency News

New Delhi, Jan 8: CPI-M member Mohammed Salim and BJP leader and Union Minister S S Ahluwalia clashed in the Lok Sabha fiercely on Tuesday during the debate on The Citizenship Bill.

Amid heated exchange of words, Mr Ahluwalia said the 'undivided' Communist Party had passed a resolution opposing the 'Vande Mataram' as a national song.

"What kind of loyalty they speak....," Mr Ahluwalia said.

Countering the BJP lawmaker from Darjeeling in West Bengal, the Marxist parliamentarian said, "I must caution the BJP members that this man may contest next election on Trinamool Congress ticket".

"Who is he (Ahluwalia) to teach me about loyalty....He has been changing from one state to the other and from one party to the other," Mr Salim said.

Mr Ahluwalia, once a Congress leader and known being part of the 'Rajiv Gandhi's shouting brigade' during Bofors days had joined BJP when Atal Bihari Vajpayee was Prime Minister. (UNI)
