Ramesh Bidhuri, the Member of Parliament representing South Delhi for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), has found himself at the center of controversy following his use of offensive language against Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) MP Danish Ali during a parliamentary session on Thursday. The incident unfolded during a discussion on the Chandrayaan-3 mission within the hallowed halls of the Lok Sabha.

Bidhuri’s comments, which included derogatory terms such as “extremist,” “pimp,” and “terrorist” directed at Ali, elicited widespread outrage across party lines. In response to the uproar, parliamentary authorities swiftly expunged the offensive remarks from the official record.

The BJP took further action on Friday by issuing a show cause notice to Bidhuri regarding his choice of language during the parliamentary proceedings. This move reflects the party’s commitment to maintaining decorum and civility within the political discourse.

However, the incident did not go unnoticed by BSP supremo Mayawati, who expressed her disappointment over the perceived lack of concrete action taken against Bidhuri. She took to the social media platform X (formerly known as Twitter) to voice her concerns, stating, “Although the speaker expunged the Delhi BJP MP’s objectionable remarks against BSP MP Shri Danish Ali from the record and warned him, leading to a senior minister’s apology, it is sad that the party has not yet taken appropriate action against him. Unfortunate.”

Notably, this is not the first time that Ramesh Bidhuri has stirred controversy with his choice of language. In May 2019, during a rally in Delhi’s Mehrauli, he referred to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal as a “pimp.” Bidhuri’s words during the rally were aimed squarely at Kejriwal, with him saying, “Abey, ye Kejriwal bhi b****a hai. Ye kab tak rokega? (Kejriwal is a pimp. How long will he be able to stop the case?).”

In another instance, Bidhuri took a veiled dig at Chief Minister Kejriwal, labeling him a “bauna Duryodhan (short Duryodhan).”

Currently serving as a BJP MP in South Delhi for the second consecutive term, Bidhuri has previously held the position of Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) thrice before being elected as an MP. His political journey, as detailed on his website, traces its roots to a “respectable family” in South Delhi’s Tughlakabad village. Bidhuri, who is 56 years old, and his family members have a long-standing association with the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). He has been an active participant in student politics since 1983 and was a member of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP).

In 1993, Bidhuri’s involvement in politics took a more prominent turn, and three years later, he assumed the role of district general secretary of Mehrauli district. He also served as the Pradesh Secretary for Dharm Yatra of Mahasangh. From 1997 to 2003, he held the position of district president within the BJP.

Ramesh Bidhuri’s recent comments have brought attention to the importance of maintaining civility and decorum in parliamentary proceedings, prompting a reflection on the need for respectful discourse within India’s political landscape.
