Referring to President Droupadi Murmu as ‘rashtrapatni’ was a ”slip of the tongue”, Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury said on Thursday and alleged that the BJP was making a ”mountain out of a molehill” over the issue. The BJP has accused the Congress of “demeaning” President Murmu and demanded an apology.


”One time I made an error… It was a slip of the tongue. What should I do? I said it and realised I uttered a wrong word. I even looked for mediapersons who I had said this to, to request them to not focus on it. However, I couldn’t find them.

”Some ruling party members are deliberately trying to make a mountain out of a molehill. It is very unfortunate,” the Congress leader told reporters.
