Modi-Kharge lunch event after foul comment in Rajya Sabha

Debjit Mukherjee: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday attended a lunch along with Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge, Rajya Sabha Chairman Jagdeep Dhankhar and other MPs in Parliament where millet dishes were served. “As we prepare to mark 2023 as the International Year of Millets, attended a sumptuous lunch in Parliament where millet dishes were served. Good to see participation from across party lines,” Modi tweeted sharing some pictures of the lunch. Interestingly, the lunch event was conducted after ruling and opposition members in Rajya Sabha earlier in the day sparred over certain remarks made by Kharge in Rajasthan’s Alwar, with treasury bench members seeking an apology from him for the “foul” comments.
