The meeting comes close on the heels of his observation last week calling for reviewing procedures of the House.

He had said that he planned to convene as early as possible a meeting of leaders to have "frank practical" discussion on rules needed to be amended for smooth running of the House.

Agitated by repeated disruptions, Ansari had last week wondered whether members wish the House to become a ‘federation of anarchists’. "Every single rule in the rule book, every single etiquette is being violated...If the Hon'ble members wish the House to become a federation of anarchists, then it is a different matter,” he had said. The remark had drawn flak from members of the House. Ansari had later clarified his comments and agreed to review them.
