LS Speaker Sumitra Mahajan writes to MPs, says it`s time to introspect
Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan has written to Members of Parliament asking them to end the "cycle of interruptions" in the House.

Reminding MPs of their "moral responsibility", she urged them to ensure smooth functioning of the House and said "time has come for us to introspect and decide what is the way forward and ideal image for our Parliament and democracy."
In her letter she wrote:

"We all know that the tenure of 16th Lok Sabha has entered into its final year and now only 3 sessions are left. Time is limited but there are several items of work still unfinished. We all know time will be available mainly during the Monsoon and Winter Sessions in Lok Sabha for discussion and transacting Legislative business. Besides, all the Members wish to raise the matters relating to the developmental and other works of their constituency in the House so that they are in a position to share the details of their participation in the business of the House with their constituents. On the basis of my
experience, I can say that people observe the performance of their representatives very keenly and media also presents to the people the detailed report of their performance in the Parliament and Parliamentary constituency. In my capacity as the Speaker, I desire that since you have been elected to the Supreme Panchayat of the country – Lok Sabha, you should discharge your responsibilities to the best of your capability."
