Speakers past and present on Somnath Chatterjee

August 13, 2018 11:57

Former Vice President and former deputy chairperson of the Rajya Sabha Hamid Ansari: He was a very eminent parliamentarian and a man of great erudition, a speaker who added lustre to the chair. In his passing away, we have a lost very eminent personality. He has left behind a void. People will remember him.

Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan: Somnathda was a big brother to me. Our ideology was different but still, from the time I entered Parliament in '89, I used to see how he used to raise issues while following every rule. His tenure as a speaker was a guidance for me.
