The Rajya Sabha marshals on Thursday were seen without caps which were part of ensemble of their new military-like “dress code”, in the backdrop of objections from various quarters, including ex-Army personnel.

Some members from the Opposition benches also made the mention about this to Chairman Venkaiah Niadu in lighter vein when the House assembled for the zero hour. “It is good,” said Congress MP Madhusudan Mistry, drawing attention of Naidu.

Naidu responded saying: “As I have said, nothing reflects like the Army,” and added that the review process is on. Sources said the Secretariat officialdom felt a bit let down on the unexpected reservations in certain quarters on the dress code’s design. There was a long-standing demand from the marshals, who are senior officers in hierarchy, for the dress code which distinguished them from the “Watch and Ward” staff in keeping with their official status. — TNS
