Lok Sabha speaker, Sumitra Mahajan on Wednesday gave a strict warning to members against using mobile phones inside the House after BJP member Anurag Thakur expressed regret for allegedly shooting opposition protests in the Well using his mobile two days ago.

Some opposition members had complained about Thakur shooting video of their protests in the Well on 24 July and AAP member Bhagwant Mann had written a letter in this regard to the Speaker.

Mahajan said that nothing has come to her notice, and added that if someone had done so, then it is condemnable. “If you have done it, then you have to tender an apology (to the House),” she said.

Thereafter, Thakur gave a statement and expressed regret.

“Mobile se agar kisiko aapattee hai to … mein khed vyakt karta hoon (If someone has objections to (my) mobile, then I express my regret),” Thakur said.

The speaker warned against such actions in the future.

“I am warning you… Dobara galti nahi honi chahiye (the mistake should not be repeated),” she told the member.

She had suspended six Congress members on 24 July from attending the House for five days after they threw papers towards the Chair.

During those protests in the Well, it was alleged that Thakur had shot the scenes using his mobile phone.

As the House met after adjournment at 12:45 pm, Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge wanted to know why action was not being taken against Thakur whereas Mann had faced suspension for two sessions for shooting video outside the House but in the Parliament complex.
