I'm deeply saddened: Naidu
Venkaiah Naidu said, "I am deeply saddened that since the beginning of the Monsoon Session, the House is being sabotaged continuously. It seems as if there is competition going on in the House between some sections."
According to reports, on Tuesday, some opposition MPs climbed the table in the House. This is the place where Rajya Sabha officials and journalists sit. Not only this, an MP even picked up the official document and threw it towards the chair of the chairman.
Naidu said, "In our temples, devotees are allowed to enter the sanctum sanctorum only to a certain extent, no further than that. Entering this sanctum sanctorum of the House is in a way his sacrilege and this has become routine for years."
"I am distressed by the way this sacredness has been destroyed yesterday. While some members sat on the Table, some others climbed on the Table of the House, perhaps to be more visible with acts of sacrilege. I have no words to convey my anguish and to condemn such acts," the Chairman said.
