"I will ask the Secretariat to review the remarks (made yesterday) in light of the record they have," he said.

As the House was in turmoil over various issues, Ansari had observed: "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."

"If you read what I said (yesterday) I said with condition ... not as an allegation, or attributing it to anybody. If a question is posed, it cannot be an allegation," he clarified.

He said that the Chair is not part of the government and his endeavour has been to run the House according to the rule book.  "Time has come for us to review our practices and rules and carry out changes as necessary," he said, adding he would soon call a meeting of leaders to discuss how rules need to be amended.
