Lok Sabha Speaker upset, won’t attend Parliament for now: Report

New Delhi: Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla has expressed deep displeasure with both the ruling party and the opposition over the continued disruption of parliamentary activities, stating he will not attend sessions until lawmakers behave according to the dignity of the house, an NDTV report said.

Birla was notably absent from the Speaker’s seat when the Lok Sabha proceedings began on August 2. Loud protests continued, leading to its adjournment until 2 pm and for the day later.

The lower house was adjourned for the day as opposition members continued their protests on the Manipur issue, demanding a statement from Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the situation in the state, which has been affected by months-long ethnic violence.

The Speaker holds the dignity of the House in the highest esteem and expects members to maintain decorum during proceedings, they said.
