The Indian Youth Congress (IYC) on Sunday said its protest against Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan was "right" and its leaders were prepared to justify their action if summoned to reply to a parliamentary privilege motion.
Speaker Meira Kumar
appears to be in no hurry to decide whether the "document"
submitted by PAC chairman Murli Manohar Joshi on its scrutiny
into the 2G scam issue is indeed the report of the committee.
She is often heard pleading for order in the Lok Sabha in her soft voice, but on Tuesday - when the world celebrated International Women`s Day - Speaker Meira Kumar sounded unusually furious at some male lawmakers.
Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar will meet leaders of all political parties on Tuesday in an effort to resolve the stand-off in Parliament over the Opposition demand for a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probe into the 2G scam.
Saying that responsibilities of
Presiding Officers of modern Legislatures have increased and
diversified manifold, Meira Kumar today
called for proficient management of the affairs of the Houses
throughout the country.
Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar
on Saturday said people with courage, conviction and commitment to a
cause should enter the political arena for taking forward the
development agenda in the era of liberalisation.
Ahead of the Budget session of
Parliament, Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar has convened a
meeting of leaders of all political parties on February 20 to
ensure smooth running of the nearly three-month long session.
