'Dictation & dramatics won't be accepted': Venkaiah Naidu to protesting MPs in Rajya Sabha
Naidu asked the members to introspect their attitude as uncertain words from the members would not work as a pressure tactic and said dictation and dramatics will not be accepted.
Vice President and Rajya Sabha Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu on Tuesday expressed his displeasure over the continuous blocking of the proceedings of the House. He asked the members to introspect their attitude as uncertain words from the members would not work as a pressure tactic and said dictation and dramatics will not be accepted.
Amid the sloganeering in House, he said, “Today is the sixth of the scheduled 19 sittings of the House for this monsoon session. We are still to get into business mode. I am concerned over media reports that some sections of the House are determined not to allow the functioning of the House for the remainder of the session. All of you should introspect if this is what we make of our exalted parliamentary democracy".
"I will never accept any such dictation by anybody. Dictation or dramatics are not going to be accepted by the Chair, whoever is in the Chair," Naidu added. He urged the Opposition parties that were constantly disrupting the House, to check their conduct as they were being watched all over the country.
Vice President Naidu further said, “Leaders of parties have voiced their concerns to me over the ongoing sorry state of affairs and for being deprived of raising issues of public concerns. I appeal to all of you to rethink this attitude."
The House was adjourned first till 12 and then till 2 pm.
