“As the speaker, can I expect from all of you that this highest symbol of democracy – Lok Sabha – which is also the temple of democracy, all of us will behave according to the accepted decency, so that the prestige and uprightness of parliament remains intact,” the speaker said in the letter, which was written in Hindi.
“Can I expect cooperation from you in this endeavour?” she asked.
