"You do not deserve one paisa of public money," an angry Speaker Somnath Chatterjee [Images] said as members of several political parties stormed the well of Lok Sabha raising a spate of issues and disrupted Question Hour.
So annoyed was the Speaker with the behaviour of some members, he said that he believed Parliament should be
adjourned sine die."I think Parliament should be adjourned sine die ... public money should not be spent on useless allowances for you," he said as some members of the Bahujan Samaj Party, Bharatiya Janata Party Republican Party of India, Patali Makal Katchi and Marumalarchi Dravida Munetra Kazhagam stormed the Well and raised slogans against the government on several issues.
The BSP criticised the United Progressive Alliance government for "being anti-Dalit" as it had "ignored" the backward classes in a new draft legislation on universities introduced in the House.
The BJP members joined them on the same issue, while members of PMK and MDMK trooped into the well demanding that the government make efforts to "stop war" in Sri Lanka [Images]. TDP members were also seen raising the Satyam [Get Quote] issue.
Angered by the members' behaviour, Chatterjee said "you are behaving in the most condemnable manner. I express my
greatest annoyance and condemnation."
The Speaker said he hoped that the people of the country will give a "fit verdict" in the coming elections.
