NEW DELHI: Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan said today she tries to run the house with motherly instinct.
Addressing members of Rashtra Sevika Samiti, the women wing of RSS, on the birth anniversary of its founder Laxmibai Kelkar in Delhi, Mahajan said her job needs fine balancing like a mother who would rather scold her children behind close doors than in public.
“When I sit on the Speaker’s chair, I think that all parties have their own politics. They have their own problems and they have their own leaders who must have directed the members of parliament to do something. I always try to make them understand.
“My efforts had been always to run the house smoothly. If they still do not understand, then I would adjourn the house, call them inside my cabin, scold them or make them understand. I can also advise them. So that shows my great motherhood. I will not show my anger. This is also an example of balancing in the society,” Mahajan said. (AGENCIES)
