“Rule 374A intends to meet a situation when a disorder caused by a member needs to be deal with immediately so that order is restored in the house and the business of the house continues. This means that Rule 374A is applicable only to those member who are in the well of the House or obstructs or disrupts the proceedings, disobeying the directions of the speaker,” Premachandran wrote.

            Showing rule book by a RSP MP to seek a escape root for the suspended members of the congress stating that they were not in tje well of the house is laughable. Seeking reconsideration of their suspension on the filmsy ground is not tenable.Only a written undertaking by them not to disturb the Parliament session further is only remedy,I think.
