SP MP expresses regret over bill snatching incident: Speaker

Meira Kumar

Samajwadi Party member Yashvir Singh, who had stunned the Lok Sabha yesterday by snatching acopy of the quota bill from Minister V Narayanasamy, today expressed regret over the incident.

Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar said the member had expressed regret over the unfortunate incident which had shaken the foundation of democracy.

Kumar said the untoward incident had led to abrupt adjournment of the House yesterday.

"It had shaken the foundation of democracy. Issues should be discussed in the House," the Speaker observed.

Kumar said the member has expressed regret and expected all members to discuss issues in the House.

Singh had snatched the copy of the Constitution (117thAmendment) Bill Narayanasamy.

The incident led to commotion in the House and triggered a war of words outside between the Congress and its ally SP, which is strongly opposed to reservation in promotion for Scs and STs in government jobs.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath had said he would urge the Speaker to take action against the SP member.
