Speaker Somnath Chatterjee,an aggressive votary for observance of rules in the House,will visit Bangladesh this weekend to address the newly-elected MPs there on how to conduct business in Parliament.
I will talk about the importance of parliamentary democracy,proper functioning of Parliament and our experiences to the members of the new Bangladesh Parliament,Chatterjee told PTI.
On a lighter note,he said of course,I cannot talk about the credibility of the Speaker because here I cannot control the House. The Speaker has,on a regular basis,expressed his anguish over the disruption of proceedings and behaviour of members in the House.
Replying to questions,Chatterjee also blamed the media for highlighting the disruptions more than the proceedings.
Yesterday,(External Affairs Minister) Pranab Mukherjee made some important observations in the House. But the disruptions have recieved front-page coverage.”
