Quota bill: Mayawati targets RS Chairman, warns govt

HAmid Ansari

Ansari was yesterday anguished over repeated disruptions and went to the extent of suggesting that the Question Hour be either scrapped or shifted to some later part of the day.

Mayawati's detractor and arch rival in Uttar Pradesh Mulayam Singh Yadav took potshots at her saying Parliament is run always on respect to the Chair.

BJP disapproved of Mayawati's attack on Rajya Sabha Chairman. BJP spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad said, "We don't approve of it."

He said if there was serious divide between its two allies, the Congress and the government should manage it.

However, the government said it was hopeful of finding a solution to run Parliament smoothly.

"We will find a solution.... we are slowly moving ahead," Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath told reporters here.

External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid said Ansari was known for his respect and personal warmth he showed in dealing with others. "You can't find fault with the way he runs the House," he said adding if anyone has any complaint they could go to the Chairman's chamber and take it up with him.
