NEW DELHI: After a Congress MP alleged that finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman made some remarks about his Hindi proficiency because he belonged to a lower caste, Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla cautioned members in the House against referring to anyones caste and religion.During the Question Hour, Congress member A R Reddy used the term to refer to his own social class, but the Speaker said that people haven't elected the members of Lok Sabha because of their caste and faith.Such words should never be used in the House by anyone here.The Speaker cautioned that if I do not take steps against a member of Congress, I will have to take steps against him.

Birla asked Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, the House's chairman, to ensure that the party's members understood that they should not make such remarks about the Speaker.You are the House Speaker.Ensure that members understand that they shouldn't alter the Speaker's behavior in the future by implying that you (the Speaker) should not interrupt them.Did you recall what I said Birla said?

Sir, you cannot interrupt, Reddy said when the Speaker objected to his criticism and told him to ask a single question.However, Birla allowed Reddy to ask his question after he cautioned against making such remarks against the Speaker.Responding to Reddy's question, the finance minister said she would also give her reply in weak Hindi to the question asked by the Congress member in weak Hindi.The Congresswoman, who was referring to Modis' remarks on the value of rupees against dollars in the past, should have referred to the time's economic indicators, she said.

India was reportedly in a fragile five, she said.Despite the pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine war, India is the fastest-growing economy today, she said.This is a point of pride.They are just playing fun of it, she said.
