In a first, barricades were put up on either side of the secretary general’s table in the Lok Sabha blocking members from accessing the Speaker’s Chair. The move comes after nearly three weeks of unruly protests by the opposition members led by Congress used placards to block the Speaker’s vision. Green-coloured barriers were put up, apparently to protect Secretary General Anoop Mishra from any disturbance by protesting Congress MPs, who repeatedly storm the Well to target the government. On the left side of the Secretary General’s chair, the barricade has a small door-like arrangement for him to walk in and out.
