Expressing grave displeasure, Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan on Thursday warned SP member Akshay Yadav for tearing some papers in the Well and throwing it across, terming it a “disorderly Act”.
While the Question Hour was in progress amid din created by Opposition members who had trooped into the Well, Yadav tore some papers and threw them towards the Speaker’s podium.
This conduct of Yadav is a “gross violation of the norms of standards and etiquettes laid down under Rules and Conventions of the House”, she said, adding “this conduct is not proper on the part of the member and also for the dignity and prestige of the House”.
“I therefore, while, expressing my grave displeasure over the conduct of Shri Yadav warn him to refrain from such from disorderly act in future,” she added.
Under Rule 349 (xxi) of Rules of Procedures and Conduct of Business in Lok Sabha when it is in session, a member shall not tear off documents in the House in protest.
