New Delhi | Lok Sabha speaker Om Birla has strongly disapproved of the protests and chants in the House, and has appealed the members to refrain from doing the same.
“I will allow anyone to speak in this esteemed House even out of turn”, Om Birla said, after spending some time silencing the shouting members.
“We have to take the prestige of this house to the next level. The house belongs equally to everyone one of you. Do not reduce it to slogans and chants”, he said.
He then asserted that the MPs can debate as much as they want, but do not indulge in protesting.
“I appeal to all of you. You can debate as you wish. If you want to answer someone, please go ahead. But sloganeering will not be tolerated”, he declared.
“The world is watching us”, he said, appealing the members to please hold the House’s esteem.
There was a lot of tension in the Lower House, with Congress MPs resorting to sloganeering to protest the Karnataka political crisis in the Congress-JD(S) coalition.
The Congress has accused BJP of horse-trading and has held them responsible for the fissures in the Karnataka government.
