SHRI SOMNATH CHATTERJEE (BOLPUR): Mr. Speaker, Sir, on behalf of my party and myself, I offer hearty felicitations to you on your election to one of the highest offices in our great Republic. It is significant, as the Leader of the House has mentioned, that today a dalit is adorning this high seat. We firmly believe that with your experience in different organisations including the Legislative Assembly of Andhra Pradesh, you will be able to discharge your very onerous duties with distinction. On our behalf, we offer you full cooperation.

Mr. Speaker, Sir, from now on you do not belong to any party but you belong to this House. You are now the custodian of the rights and privileges of the House and the Members. This is the House which the country is looking to for solving many of the problems that are besetting it, the task which the people have given to us. Sir, I am sure that you will maintain the equidistance which was promised by our good friend the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh.

I cannot conclude by paying my respect to you without expressing our deepest sense of appreciation of the manner in which your predecessor discharged his duties and functions. He showed exemplary conduct as Speaker. I must pay my tributes to Shri P.A. Sangma. I hope he is present here! He should be known as one of the ablest Speakers this House has ever had. ...(Interruptions)... I have some humble experience of this House and so I can say this with confidence. The way the Special Session was organised by Shri Sangma as the Speaker speaks volumes of his commitment to the basic fundamentals of our Republic and our Constitution. We cannot but express our commitment once more to the Resolution which was adopted unanimously at the end of that Session. As to how far that is being maintained, we will have to see in the days to come.

We are happy that you are here. But I only wish, as the Leader of the Opposition has said, there was a consensus. But that was not to be. Merit has been sacrificed at the altar of political expediency. Even then, Sir, you have our fullest support. We offer you our fullest cooperation. I wish you a brilliant tenure as the Speaker of this great institution.
