Bhopal, July 5 (ANI): An orientation programme for state legislators turned out to be a 'sleepy affair' in Bhopal.

The two-day orientation programme was aimed to make the legislators aware of the nuances of lawmaking.

Even as Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar was explaining the various aspects of lawmaking and responsibilities associated with the executive, many of the deputies were seen dozing off.

However, Kumar tried to downplay the incident, saying all the listeners were "awake".

"I don't think any of the legislators was sleeping. They were all awake," Kumar said.

Newspapers many a times publish pictures of lawmakers dozing off even when serious legislations are being discussed in Parliament. (ANI)
