Amid heavy downpour outside Parliament, a Congress member on Thursday drew the attention of the Speaker to a stray leak from the roof of the Lok Sabha.
"Madam, sadan mein pani tapak raha hai (water is dripping in the House)," Jagdambika Pal said during Zero Hour and pointed out the place from where water was leaking.
Concerned over the wear and tear of the Parliament House building, Speaker Meira Kumar has already constituted a high level-committee headed by her to protect the heritage structure.
The committee, set up last year to ensure the best upkeep of the magnificent building constructed some 80 years ago, held its first meeting this month.
The panel is closely examining proposals for renovation, alteration and modification of the ageing complex, some parts of which need urgent repair.
Home Minister P Chidambaram, Parliamentary Affairs Minister PK Bansal and BJP leader LK Advani are among the members of the committee.
