Mahajan made the observation during Zero Hour when BJP member Sanjay Jaiswal used an objectionable word while referring to the Medical Council of India.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister M Venkaiah Naidu immediately drew the Chair's attention to the word and said if it is not expunged, it would find its way in the newspapers the next day.

Mahajan said that the members should observe self restraint on using objectionable words or she would have to take a class.

Jaiswal was objecting to the medical examination being conducted by the MCI, which has been caught in a controversy.
