"Stranger" enters Rajya Sabha

Special Correspondent

NEW DELHI: There were some anxious moments in the Rajya Sabha on Wednesday during the discussion on the Maharashtra floods when a "stranger" entered the House.

The "stranger," however, turned out to be the Bharatiya Janata Party Lok Sabha member, Mahesh Kumar Kanodia, who walked up to Home Minister Shivraj Patil when he was replying a question on the flood situation in Maharashtra. Though he was a Lok Sabha member, under the rules of the House any such entry is considered to be that of a "stranger."

Deputy Chairman K. Rahman Khan asked officials to find out who the "stranger" was, as Congress member Anand Sharma expressed concern over such an entry.

Mr. Kanodia was "located" and he said he was unaware of the rules and tendered an apology.

Later, Rajya Sabha Secretary General Yogendra Narain confirmed the identity of the visitor and said that under the rules his entry was considered to be that of a "stranger." It was conveyed to the Deputy Chairman and the matter was treated.
