The BJP, led by Smriti Irani and Nirmala Sitharaman, protested vehemently and demanded an apology from both Chowdury and Congress President Sonia Gandhi.

“I am writing to express my regret for having mistakenly used an incorrect word to describe the position you hold,” he wrote in a letter to the President.
