On Wednesday, a recitation by a lawmaker from the ruling party, however, drew equal appreciation from both the treasury and opposition benches.
During a session on Sufism and poetry in the Lok Sabha, BJP lawmaker from North West Delhi Hans Raj Hans left the Lok Sabha impressed with his rendition of a Ghazal written by Pakistani poet Razi Akhtar Shauq.
