'MPs going like animals into the well of house is very wrong'

Congress MP Mani Shankar Aiyar is seldom short of words to describe any situation, and in this case MPs of opposition parties were at the receiving end, with the senior party leader saying that it was wrong for them to 'shout like animals' in Parliament.

"The question is not whether the government will survive or not, it most definitely will," Aiyar said on a television debate on IBN7.

There should be a debate in which other party leaders could put their views forward and the government could respond to them, he added.

"There is a decent and respectable way to express one's point of view. Going like animals into the well of the house and shouting, its a very wrong thing to do,"Aiyar said.

Whether the MPs who chose to protest the government's policy decision in the well of the house were fine with their behaviour being compared to that of animals isn't known.

After a washed out monsoon session, the winter session of Parliament was also in danger of going the same way, due to protests by Opposition MPs over the government's decision to allow foreign direct investment into multi-brand retail.

However, after negotiations between the major parties there is scheduled to be a debate and vote on the subject in both Houses of Parliament.
