MPs got the couplets wrong

Bollywood's celebrated scriptwriter and lyricist Javed Akhtar has said that Members of Parliament belonging to different political parties got couplets wrong variously during the recent No-Confidence Motion debate.  

"With folded hands and utmost humility, I want to request the MPs of all the parties in the Lok Sabha to at least have some mercy on poetry. Without any exception, each and every couplet recited during the 12-hour session was either wrongly worded, out of meter or mispronounced," Javed today said.

Usually, couplets are used by MPs in their speeches to lace their dry speeches with interesting spells of poetry.  Often, more than the data cited or questions raised, it's these couplets which catch the attention of the people.
