Sources said Mr Naidu conveyed his "outrage" over the retiring members of the House not being allowed the courtesy of farewell observations. He did some plainspeaking to the leaders questioning the rationale for prolonged disruptions when he had agreed to allow discussion on each and every issue and when the opposition and ruling parties were ready for debates on various issues, they said.
The Chairman said the stalemate was bringing disgrace to the House besides eroding democracy. He questioned how the House and other parties could be helpless in the matter.
The sources said Tuesday's efforts of Mr Naidu were aimed at mobilizing the leaders and members of the parties who were keen about normal functioning of the House against members of parties hijacking the functioning of the House and building up a case for action against disruptors if they did not mend their ways.
After the Chairman's outreach, the sources expressed confidence that the chances of normal functioning of the House on Wednesday have brightened. During the meeting, several suggestions including allowing the members near the Chairman's podium without placards, raising their demands from their respective seats and allowing the agitated members to stand in their places when farewell mentions are to be made were rejected by the Chairman.
