New Delhi, Feb 20 (ANI): The Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee on Friday opted to withdraw his comments against the MPs, saying they were actually made out of frustration.

Yesterday, I made some comments out of frustration. I want all of to come back with peoples support, Chatterjee said.

What can I say if you dont want Parliament to function? I hope all of you should be defeated in the elections. I hope the people give their verdict properly. You have to be taught a lesson, Chatterjee had stated on Thursday while being on chair in Lok Sabha. (ANI)
