Last Updated: Wed, Dec 05, 2012 10:40 hrs

There was a ruckus inside the Lok Sabha on Wednesday as Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav taunted the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) during the debate on allowing FDI in retail.

BJP lawmakers were up on their feet inside the house immediately and demanded an apology from Yadav over the unparliamentary remarks used by him for the main opposition party.

Yadav called them 'jamhoora', which they said is unparliamentary.

Yadav, however, refused to apologise, saying he had not used any foul language and translated 'jamhoora' as player.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath later intervened and requested the RJD chief and the BJP lawmakers to calm down. (ANI)
