Press Trust of India New Delhi
Members who sit behind pillars in Lok Sabha become "big people", Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Arjun Ram Meghwal told a BJP member on Wednesday.
Anil Firozia (BJP), who was raising an issue during Zero Hour this evening, said he sits behind a pillar and hence he is not noticed.
He had made a similar remark earlier too.
Meghwal rose to say that those sitting behind pillars in Lok Sabha become "big people" and that Parliamentary Affairs Minister Prahlad Joshi also sat behind a pillar.
At this, Speaker Om Birla said he too used to sit behind a pillar.
The circular Lok Sabha chamber has several black pillars and some members have seats hidden behind these pillars.
