Author and columnist Shobhaa De took a dig at the Members of Parliament in the manner in which they have been behaving in recent times.
She posted on the micro-blogging site Twitter: “Gunday – Part 2 complete! Sequel shot exclusively inside our Parliament. Multi-starrer featuring ugly MPs.”
Hindi film ‘Gunday’ produced under the banner of Yash Raj Films is based in Calcutta and tells the story of two boys who become coal bandits from gun couriers. They are basically renegades and are thus called Gunday.
De’s reaction comes after the MPs have been in news recently for wrong reasons. Unprecedented scenes were witnessed in the Lok Sabha the day the Telangana Bill was introduced. Papers were torn, mikes were uprooted, slogans were shouted and pepper was sprayed from a canister on fellow colleagues. It led to the expulsion of six MPs by Speaker Meira Kumar. The unruly behaviour by the parliamentarians was condemned by leaders cutting across party lines and also by the media and the common people.
