Outgoing Speaker Somnath Chatterjee [Images] expressed concern about the manner in which money was flaunted by some MPs during the Trust Vote on July 23rd last year to save the government.
Asked why he made such a comment, he quipped, "I felt that people chose them and they must work for them."
He rejected Opposition Leader L K Advani's [Images] suggestion that prime minister should be from the Lok Sabha.
"The prime minister should be one who is capable of leading the nation," he said.
