Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Saugata Roy said here on Wednesday that the party will protest against Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) misbehavior with TMC women members yesterday in the Parliament.

Condemning the foul language used by the BJP, Roy said, "The BJP leaders have used wrong and foul language. We will protest on the issue of price rise, railway fare and the BJP's behaviour against women members of the TMC yesterday inside the parliament from 10 a.m. in front of Gandhi statue."

He also said that they are waiting for Speaker's action as she has assured investigation into the matter.

"The speaker has assured investigation in it lets see what they do. The behavior of the BJP members towards our female members was not right. This should not have happened. Any scuffle and physical or oral fight is not good for the prestige of the place," he added.

However, BJP Member of Parliament (MP) Harinarayan Rajbhar denied the allegations saying that they are wrong and none of party members misbehaved with the TMC women members.

"Their all accusations are wrong. I said that the protest should be done within the rules of system. This doesn't mean that foul language should be used. They used foul language against PM. We didn't misbehave with women members of TMC. Everybody saw it. This is wrong. If someone will use wrong words for PM then it's somewhat difficult to tolerate that. I didn't get provoked just asked them not to use foul lang. we were in control. We should take care of the prestige of the parliament," said Rajbhar.

Moreover reacting over the protest which is to be held by TMC leaders today, Rajbhar added, "We cannot do anything on this. There method is wrong. Everything will be cleared after seeing the camera footage."

Meanwhile, Biju Janata Dal (BJD) MP Jay Panda also condemned the act, and said that it is shocking that such an incident took place inside the parliament.

"What happened in parliament yesterday is shocking and I condemn it. I condemn actually all sides involved because first of all the kind of disruption that was taking place is not correct, I have always spoken against it and I urge the speaker to maintain discipline so that the house can function properly," said Panda.

A new low was witnessed in the Lok Sabha yesterday, as TMC MPs leveled allegations of abuse and misbehaviour against the BJP.

Women MPs from the TMC were vociferous over the alleged misbehaviour conducted by two BJP MPs. TMC MPs were seen rushing out of the Parliament after the reported scuffle.

In the related incident TMC has decided to stage sit in protest in front of Gandhi Statue tomorrow against alleged misconduct of BJP MPs in Parliament.

The BJP on the other hand denied TMC charges and termed it mere drama, instead charged the TMC MPs shouting slogans against Modi and other BJP leaders.
