‘Troubled’ by opposition remarks: Lok Sabha speaker

New Delhi, March 2 (IANS) Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan on Wednesday expressed her disappointment over certain remarks made by agitating Congress members questioning her impartiality.

“This is not good, whatever you have done today. I am sorry to say but I am allowing you to speak with a heavy heart as you have troubled me a lot. Some members raised slogans against me,” Mahajan said.

She made these remarks when Congress members trooped near the speaker’s podium, asking her to move the party’s privilege motion notice against Human Resource Development Minister Smriti Irani.

During the sloganeering, some Congress members accused her of “partisan” conduct.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu also objected to the remarks.

“You want to dictate; you want to question the speaker also; let us respect the speaker,” Naidu said.
