Srinagar: Saying that responsibilities of
Presiding Officers of modern Legislatures have increased and
diversified manifold, Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar today
called for proficient management of the affairs of the Houses
throughout the country.

"Our responsibilities as Presiding Officers of modern
Legislatures have increased and diversified manifold. There is
need for proficient management of the affairs of the
legislative houses throughout the country", Kumar said while
declaring open a two-day 75th Conference of presiding officers
and secretaries of legislative bodies in India here.

It is the fourth time that the conference is being held
here. The previous conferences were held in 1954, 1970 and

"alternate mechanisms" that give the members adequate
opportunities to highlight issues of public interest.

provides effective platform for learning from each other`s
experiences in managing the affairs of our democratic Houses
more professionally.

institutions and gave details of the achievements in making
the Parliamentary proceedings more effective, professional and
result-oriented.

She hoped that the Conference will discuss relevant
issues in their proper perspectives towards fortifying the
democratic institutions.

Kumar told the Conference about the successful debate over
several matters of immense public importance like the problem
of rising prices and growing menace of Maoist violence in
various parts of the country, during the fourth Session of the
15th Lok Sabha.
