Bharatiya Janata Party MP Ramesh Bidhuri, who was slated to attend a parliamentary panel meeting on Tuesday regarding his controversial remarks concerning Bahujan Samaj Party's Danish Ali, opted out of the appearance, citing prior commitments.

Bidhuri is currently busy campaigning for the party in Rajasthan, which is heading for elections. He has been assigned the role of overseeing the Tonk district, which encompasses four assembly constituencies.

The state assembly elections in Rajasthan are scheduled for November 23.

The Privileges Committee of Lok Sabha had asked Bidhuri for "oral evidence" in relation to complaints received from several MPs against him and BSP MP Ali for "alleged improper conduct during the discussion on Chandrayaan-3 mission in the House".

While several opposition MPs had demanded action against Bidhuri, some BJP members said Ali "incited" him and also made objectionable remarks against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

 A member from Gujjar community, Bidhuri has been drafted in by the BJP for poll work in Tonk, where it is present in a large number.
