II OBSERVATION OF THE SPEAKER REGARDING MAINTENANCE OF DECORUM AND DIGNITY OF THE HOUSE.
The Speaker made an observation regarding maintenance of decorum and dignity of the House as under:-
“Hon’ble Members, I am at pains to observe that the behaviour of the Members of Indian National Lok Dal on 13th March, 2007 was not appreciable and in spite of ample time and opportunities to speak and my repeated requests to these Members, they did not maintain the decorum and dignity of the House, which is expected from the Members of both the sides. My concerted efforts to conduct the proceedings of the House in an orderly manner die not serve the purpose and despite my repeated requests to these Members to take their seats, they even jumped into the well of the House and started slogans loudly. In order to give them more time and opportunities to express their views, I adjourned the House twice. But I am sorry to point out that these Members continued in their pre-planned motive to stall the proceedings of the House. I, being the custodian of the Rules and duty bound to maintain the decorum and dignity of the House has to name one Member against my wishes. Even on 14th March, 2007, these Members die not participate in the proceedings of the House. Had they participated they would have got much time to speak in the House and sought more information from the Government through the replies to questions given notice by them and would have performed their legislative duties more purposefully. It is not only my duty but also of all the Members of the House to maintain the decorum and enhance the dignity of this august House. Therefore, I feel it my duty to make it quite clear that in case of any disturbance or attempts to interfere with the proceedings of the House or making any kind of speech or raising any matter without my permission, I will be compelled to take action against the erring Member. I hope that I will not be forced to take this step and all the Members will extend their cooperation for smooth functioning of the House”.
