On 4th May 2016 evening I met Hon’ble Speaker of the Lok Sabha Smt Sumitra Mahajan and briefed her about the sansad ratna awards. She was quite receptive and appreciated the initiative. I also told her as to how Dr Abdul Kalam was showing keen interest in recognising outstanding Parliamentarians. I presented her the book ‘Manifesto for Change’ authored by Dr Kalam and Ponraj Vellaichamy who have devoted one full chapter for our sansad ratna awards.
I appreciated the firmness with which she conducts the House particularly during question hour and zero hour without allowing disruption.
She appreciated our Sansad Ratna initiative and extended her full support. I told her that Sansad Ratna Award is an initiative from the civil society, strictly based on the performance parameters.
