Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla today cautioned the Congress, Trinamool Congress and DMK members during Question Hour when some opposition members trooped near his podium shouting against the BJP for destabilizing the Karnataka government. Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla warned an agitating opposition member not to touch any of the parliamentary staff while protesting near his podium.
"Don't touch any of my staff," Speaker said. When opposition members came near to his podium Birla reacted.
The Speaker requested the agitating MPs to go back to their seats and let the Question Hour proceedings continue. The opposition MPs however were agitating and shouting slogans.
"Issues related to states cannot be raised in this house. This is a state issue and related to constitutional posts", said Birla requesting the opposition MPs to sit down.
Speaker said, "I have allowed you to raise this issue twice on earlier occasions. Despite that i will allow you to speak during Zero Hour after laying the papers on the House,."
After the Speaker's request the opposition members went back to their respective seats and the Question Hour continued.
