Chairing a meeting of leaders of various political parties and Chief Whips here today, the Speaker hoped that Members would utilize the time fixed for the session judiciously in order to highlight their maximum public interest issues in a democratic manner. The Speaker said that equal opportunities will be given to each political party to raise issues of public interest. He appealed the Members to highlight developmental issues besides other important issues for detailed discussion during the course of the session. Speaker impressed upon all the members that they should not disrupt the question hour which is considered as the most important tool for raising the important public issues besides making the Government answerable and accountable to the people.
Speaker said that all the members are duty bound to represent their constituents in the House by raising important public issues, “but they should do so in a decent and dignified manner and in no case resort to un-parliamentary conduct.”
