Opposition demands Smriti's apology over RS remark
“The human resource development minister must apologize for her remark about Goddess Durga,” Congress leader Anand Sharma said in Rajya Sabha.
Siding with the Congress on the issue, CPI-M general secretary Sitaram Yechury said: "The quote was deliberate. The BJP used the entire debate to polarize. What was the need to bring in Goddess Durga? Irani has to apologize."
