Following the controversial comments of Naresh Agarwal, in spite of Chair asking the media not to cover the incident, few media channel published the remarks of SP leader. Reacting to this the opposition demanded to send a show cause notice to the media channels for covering expunged remarks of the MP. They had also demanded to refer the matter to the privilege committee.

KTS Tulsi said that 50 lawmakers from 12 parties have signed and given a notice under rule 188 for breach of privilege by certain media houses for twisting and distorting of the remarks by Naresh Agarwal (SP). On this Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairman P.J. Kurien on Monday said that last week he had warned the media not report anything expunged by the Chair from the records. And if the remarks of any member are distorted, it “amounts to the breach of privilege” of the Member of Parliament.

He further added that  if the notice of Tulsi has been signed by 50 MPs, the matter “will be referred to the privileges committee.”
