Nullified vote row: In 2022, the speaker's declaration of a vote as illegal caused Ajay Maken, the Congress party's nominee from Haryana for the Rajya Sabha, to lose the election. According to Mr. Maken, it was Kiran Choudhry’s vote. In an interview, while talking about this, Mr. Maken said,

"When Kiran Choudhry came out after casting her vote, she herself said she had put a ‘tick mark’ against the candidate’s name. We had seen the ballot number on which the tick mark was put and also checked its serial number, and hence, there is no doubt that the rejected vote belonged to Kiran Choudhry."
