Sushma Swaraj, Meira Kumar Not on Talking Terms
Relations between two leading ladies in Parliament - Speaker Meira Kumar and Leader of Opposition (LoP) Sushma Swaraj - have become somewhat strained in the ongoing session of Parliament. Swaraj is otherwise a major promoter of sisterhood in politics. She is on very cordial terms even with Congress president Sonia Gandhi. But the usually congenial LoP is believed to be quite miffed with the Speaker these days for what she believes is consistent undermining of her position.
