On the eve of new year, Lok Sabha speaker Sumitra Mahajan Monday urged all members in the house not to enter the Well from next year and work according to rules.
Amid sloganeering by Congress and AIADMK members, Mahajan requested MPs of both parties to go to their respective seats for her sake, following which MPs from both parties sat down. “Today is the last day of the year…it should be the last day when you enter the well of the house…,” Mahajan said.
She also indicated that there is a rule which prohibits members from entering the well of the house and they should
work according to rules. While Mahajan was making these remarks, members listened to her patiently.
Later Speaker also announced that January 1 will be a holiday and the house would assemble on Wednesday.
