Sandeep Dikshit has verbally and physically abused TDP MPs in the Lok Sabha well after adjournment on 3 September 2013. He along with another controversial Congress MP Madhu Goud Yaskhi threatened to kill TDP MPs once they come out of the Parliament. He also challenged them to stay in Delhi and they will not be allowed to move around in Delhi. BJP MPs present in the parliament at the time of this incident mentioned that this rude challenges and unruly behavior was because his mother is CM of Delhi. Other MPs heard him shouting "Bahar niklo,waha dekhte hain" and "Dekhta hu Delhi me ab kaise rhenge". This has led to TDP MPs moving a privilege motion against him on 3 September 2013. Rude behaviour costs votes. His mother and Congress party were defeated in th Delhi State Assembly elections of 2014.
