Expressing serious concern over the frequent disruptions and lack of adequate time to discuss matters of public interest and importance, President Pranab Mukherjee said there should be a collective thinking on how to avert these situations.

Stressing that dissent must be expressed with decency and within the contours and parameters of the parliamentary practices, norms and conventions, the President said, "Disruption should never be allowed to be used as an effective parliamentary intervention."
