New Delhi: Massive backlashes were seen after a list of words was deemed to be unfit in the parliament just ahead of the new session scheduled to start on Monday.

Some of the words that made it to the list are ‘jumlajeevi’, ‘baal buddhi’, ‘Covid spreader’ and ‘Snoopgate’.

A few other words that shockingly made it to the list are some everyday expressions like ‘ashamed’, ‘abused, ‘betrayed’, ‘corrupt’, ‘drama’, ‘hypocrisy’ and ‘incompetent’. 

This list has resulted in an instant protest by the opposition leaders. Some of them said that the ban on such words will ultimately hinder their right to critique the government.

The words were deemed to be unparliamentary in a new booklet issued by the Lok Sabha secretariat for both houses.

The booklet says words like ‘anarchist’, ‘Shakuni’, ‘dictatorial’, ‘taanashah’, ‘taanashahi’, ‘Jaichand’, ‘vinash purush’, ‘Khalistani’ and ‘khoon se kheti’ would also be expunged if used during debates or otherwise.

Along with this, ‘Dohra charitra’, ‘nikamma’, ‘nautanki’, ‘dhindora peetna’ and ‘behri sarkar’ also makes up the list.

As per reports, Rajya Sabha Chairman and the Lok Sabha Speaker will have the last word in expunging words and expressions.

However, after this was out, TMC’s Derek O’Brien said that he would continue to use the words.
