OBSERVANCE OF SILENCE
MR. SPEAKER: Hon. Members, we are meeting today on a solemn occasion. A new Lok Sabha charged with great and heavy responsibilities for the welfare of the country and our people has been elected under the Constitution.
It is fit and proper, as is customary on such occasions, that we all stand in silence for a short while before we begin our Proceedings.
(The Members then stood in silence for a short while.)
