[dropcap color=”#008040″ boxed=”yes” boxed_radius=”8px” class=”” id=””]N[/dropcap]owadays veteran lawyer Ram Jethmalani never misses a chance to abuse Finance Minister Arun Jaitley. This time he used Rajya Sabha’s Question Hour on Tuesday March the 21st by raising a question on black money retrieval. Declaring Jaitley’s answer as “most dishonest answer in the history of Parliament” Jethmalani started his diatribe.

At last many words used by Jethmalani were expunged and in the evening proceeding records during 12: 20 to 12:40 noon were expunged due to Jethmalani’s angry vocabulary.

Many times colleagues Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, J P Nadda and Nirmala Sitaraman tried to prevent Jethmalani from going berserk. “I am a founder member of BJP, when you people were not even born…” countered Jethmalani, while almost all BJP MPs were cautioning him to stop continuing using un-parliamentary words. Congress MPs led by Anand Sharma were fully backing and enjoying the unstoppable verbal attacks of Jethmalani. Many times Jethmalani was heard telling BJP members that he is at the age of their father and they don’t have basic Indian culture to respect elders.

Jethmalani cornered BJP on their old report on black money which once declared around 90 lakh crore dollars were stolen from India. He wanted a specific answer on what steps the government did to probe on the details given by the German government. Jaitley gave evasive answers on the ongoing probe and assessment from HSBC, while Jethmalani was specific on Lichtenstein bank leaks provided by the Germans.

Rajya Sabha Chairperson Hamid Ansari tried all his energy to control the situation which went for 20 minutes. Being a veteran of Rajya Sabha, Jethmalani used all his tricks to play around for 10 minutes with his counter questions. At last many words used by Jethmalani were expunged and in the evening proceeding records during 12: 20 to 12:40 noon were expunged due to Jethmalani’s angry vocabulary. At one point Jethmalani’s audio was muted, while he was provoking Jaitley into giving answers.

The entire video is uploaded here. Jethmalani’s outbursts started from the 29th minute and it went up to the 47th minute of the video.
