I disapprove Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti's remark, Modi to Lok Sabha
"The minister has apologised, she is new and we are also aware of her social background. She comes from a village," he said.
The prime minister addressed the Lok Sabha a day after he made a statement in the upper house.
He said that when a "friend" apologises in front of such a big house "we should also generously accept the apology".
"I am grateful to all the members of the Lok Sabha that they allowed the house to function," Modi said.
However the opposition members, not satisfied with the remark, staged a walkout.
