Naidu was speaking in the Lok Sabha when opposition parties like the Left and the Samajwadi Party raised slogans demanding that the suspension of the Congress MPs be taken back.

Speaker Sumitra Mahajan told CPI-M leader P. Karunakaran that raising slogans and shouting was not the way to protest and they can discuss the issue later during zero hour.

Naidu said: “I am glad that the Samajwadi Party and Left who had joined the Congress protest outside and had been boycotting the house have decided to come back to the house.”

“I am assuring the members that if Congress members meet the speaker and assure her that they would help conduct the house in a proper manner,” he said.

Mahajan had suspended 25 Congress members on Tuesday for disrupting the house proceedings.
