Speaker's remark upsets Kharge

 A remark made by Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan upset Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge, prompting him to say that he never expected such words from her.

 
Soon after Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia raised the issue of alleged incursion by China in Chamoli district of Uttarakhand, Mahajan allowed Trinamool Congress leader Saugata Ray to speak about the same issue.
 
However, Kharge and few Congress members rose from their seats and started demanding a response from the government.
 
Mahajan urged the Congress members to let Ray to speak as he wanted to raise the same issue, but the Congress members would not give in.
 
An irritated Mahajan then said, "Please stop shouting."
 
Her remark prompted Kharge to say, "We are not shouting Madam, We are putting our points. I didn't expect such words from you."
 
Mahajan said, "You all three are speaking at a time. If it is not shouting then what."
 
After Mahajan's remark Congress members went back to their seats, but looked disappointed.
