They requested an apology from the opposition party and suspended the parliament till then. After denying the atonement by Verma, Home Minister P Chidambaram apologised for the inappropriate remark made by his fellow member of his ruling coalition.
During the Uttar Pradesh elections in February 2012, Verma provoked EC to incarcerate him by promulgating the statement that Muslim quota will be hiked. He delivered this statement during a campaign in Kaimganj in the presence of Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh and Union law and minority affairs minister Salman Khurshid.
