"Adv.Vineet Jindal filed a Complaint under Article 103 of Constitution of India with president of India seeking disqualification of Asaduddin Owaisi, MP under Article 102 (4) for showing his allegiance or adherence to a foreign State "Palestine", (sic), his tweet read.

Owaisi's remarks were expunged even after he came out of the House and told reporters there was nothing wrong in him saying "Jai Bheem, Jai Meem, Jai Telangana, Jai Palestine".

Asked about his remarks, Owaisi told reporters, "Other members are also saying different things... How is it wrong? Tell me the provisions of the Constitution. You should also listen to what others say. I said what I had to. Read what Mahatma Gandhi had said about Palestine".

Asked why he mentioned Palestine, he said, "They are oppressed people."

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kiren Rijiju, meanwhile, said he has received complaints from some members about the mention of Palestine.

The All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen leader, who has been elected from the Hyderabad seat for his fifth term, took oath in Urdu. He also recited a prayer before taking oath.
