It rained in the Lok Sabha too!

delhi Updated: Aug 19, 2010 22:08 IST

The heavy rains that lashed the capital on Thursday were felt in the Lok Sabha - thanks to a leaking roof.

Jagdambika Pal of the Congress raised the matter during Zero Hour, pointing to the roof. "Madam, the rain water is dripping in the house," he said.

The parliament house, designed by British architects Edwin Lutyens and Herbert Baker, is showing signs of wear and tear.

Speaker Meira Kumar has constituted a high level committee, headed by her, to protect the heritage structure that opened in 1927.

Home Minister P. Chidambaram, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader L.K. Advani are members of the committee.
