New Delhi , Nov 19 : Vice President and Rajya Sabha Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu on Tuesday said that he has decided to ask the Secretariat of the upper house to revisit the new military-style uniforms of the marshals.
The House marshals were seen wearing a military-style uniform on the first day of the historic 250th session of Rajya Sabha, a visible change that upset many.
It was a marked change from the earlier uniform in which they wore a Bandhgala and a Safa.
Former Army chief Gen V P Malik disagreed with the changes and expressed his views in a tweet saying "Copying and wearing of military uniforms by non-military personnel is illegal and a security hazard."
The marshals wore a blue uniform with a military-style peak cap and stripes on shoulders. In summers, the marshals were likely to wear white uniforms which have a resemblance to the uniform of Navy.
Four marshals are always on duty among the pool of marshals when the House is in session.
