On Wednesday, Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan has expressed her satisfaction over the 16th Lok Sabha performance, the last day of the budget session. It has been claimed by the Budget Session that total 2019 Bill was tabled in the House during the entire period and it has passed 205 Bills out of them.
Sumitra Mahajan during her last speech in the Sabha said, since 2014 June, the House has a total 331 sittings of 1612 hours, out of them 422 hours were in vain due to disruptions.
