Behave yourselves, warns LS speaker

Behave yourselves, warns LS speaker - Sakshi Post

Upset by the repeated disruptions in the Lok Sabha, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan warned the opposition party leaders to behave themselves in the Parliament.

“Serious actions would be taken if you enter the well” she warned them. The second day of parliamentary sessions also was done away with staging protests.

Both the parliamentary houses were rocked by Vyapam and Lalith Modi issues. Lok Sabha was repeatedly disrupted over Lalit Modi controversy on the first working day of the Monsoon session on Wednesday with opposition members storming the Well with placards, ignoring Speaker Sumitra Mahajan's warning of action.

Members of Congress and Left protested vociferously demanding ouster of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje in connection with the row involving Lalit Modi, former IPL chairman.

 Members of the RJD and NCP were also seen supporting the opposition demand.

The placards, carried by Congress members, read 'Bade Modi meherban, to chhote Modi pehelwan' (a Hindi idiom meaning that a small person is strong if supported by a powerful person) and 'PM chuppi todo' (PM, break your silence), Modi ji 56 inch dikhao, Sushma, Raje ko turant hatao (Show your 56 inch chest by removing Swaraj and Raje).

 Congress members were also sporting black badges on their arms to register their protests and continued wearing them and carrying placards despite Speaker's warning against doing so.

Due to the uproar, the House was repeatedly adjourned. 

Meanwhile, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh termed the opposition's conduct in parliament "unfortunate" after External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj expressed her willingness to make a statement on the Lalit Modi issue.
