New Delhi: Rajya Sabha Chairman M. Venkaiah Naidu, on Wednesday, cited former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh's speech in the House on Tuesday to stress that members can put forth their views without shouting, after a YSR Congress MP apologised for his behaviour.
Speaking on the issue, Mr Naidu said to err is human but senior leaders should consider that after the Chair has allotted a time for a discussion or debate, everyone has to cooperate. He cited former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s speech on the same issue on Tuesday to drive home the point. “He (Singh) conveyed the message in such a manner which made everybody think... The purpose is served. He did not shout,” he said. Singh conveyed to the House that the Act was passed in consultation with leader of the opposition at that time, he said. “Please see to it that there is a way to convey. It is painful for me to stop (anyone),” he said. His response came after the YSR Congress MP said, “I regret the incident.”
