On the other hand, President Draupadi Murmu has also expressed anger over the insult of Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar. The President has said that elected public representatives have the right to express their views, but it is not right to insult anyone. He said that parliamentary tradition should be taken care of and the public also wants the same.

Jagdeep Dhankhar has further said that he told PM Modi that the actions of some people will not stop me from performing my duty and maintaining the principles enshrined in our Constitution. Dhankhar told Modi that he was wholeheartedly committed to those values. Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar said that no insult will be able to force him to change his path. Let us tell you that on the complaint of a lawyer in this case, Delhi Police has also registered a case against Kalyan Banerjee for insulting the Vice President. Since the matter is outside the House, Delhi Police can also arrest Kalyan Banerjee. Overall, Kalyan Banerjee made fun of Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar and he may face big trouble in this matter.
The special thing is that when Kalyan Banerjee mimicked the Vice President during the demonstration of suspended MPs at the Makar Gate of Parliament, Congress MP Rahul Gandhi was also there and he had also made a video of it. Regarding this also, Jagdeep Dhankhar had scolded Congress MP Digvijay Singh in Rajya Sabha. Now it remains to be seen how much water of the river of politics flows in this matter.
