Somnath criticizes MPs for disrupting Question HourFebruary 19th, 2009 - 4:55 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, Feb 19 (ANI): Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee on Thursday criticized Members of Parliament (MPs) for their behaviour, saying they did not deserve even one paisa of public money.
I think Parliament should be adjourned sine die. Public money should not be spent on useless allowances for you. You dont deserve one paise of public money, Chatterjee said as several MPs stormed the well of Lok Sabha raising a spate of issues and disrupted Question Hour.
Some members of the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Telugu Desam Party (TDP), Republican Party of India (RPI), Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK) and Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (MDMK) stormed the well and raised slogans against the government on several issues.
The BSP and BJP members criticized the UPA Government for being anti-Dalit, while PMK and MDMK demanded that government should make efforts to stop war in Sri Lanka.
Annoyed by the members behaviour, Chatterjee hoped that the people of the country would give a fit verdict in the coming elections.
