Sources said on Monday that Lok Sabha Speaker Birla sent an epistle to Senate Chairman Sanjrani inviting him to visit India and attend the Lower House’s Public Accounts Committee’s centenary celebrations.

According to the draft of the invite, the Lok Sabha committee’s celebration would be held on Dec 4. Indian President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi would address the audience.

It says that Mr Sanjrani’s participation in the centenary celebrations would be an honour for the Lok Sabha Speaker.

Sources revealed that the Senate chairman has started consultations regarding his participa-tion in the Indian parliament’s celebrations.
