was reduced to a clown house on Tuesday with the new lawmakers indulging in needless and at times acrimonious sloganeering during the oath-taking ceremony. Frenzied calls of “Jai Sri Ram”, “Jai Durga” and “Allahu Akbar” filled the air. It is unfortunate that even the members of chose to ignore the direction of the presiding officer that no slogans will go on record. Shouting of religious slogans in is not only demeaning but brings down the credibility, sanctity and dignity of the House.
