New Delhi: Rajya Sabha Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu, on Tuesday, ordered to reconsider the decision of change in the uniforms of marshals in the upper house. 

There has been protests from some quarters over the uniform which is much similar to the Indian Army uniforms. Voices raised against it when marshals sported a bluish military like uniform on the 250th session of the House which began yesterday.

"The secretariat of Rajya Sabha after considering the various suggestions have come out with new dress code for marshals. But we have received some observations from some political as well as some well meaning people. So I have decided to ask the secretariat to revisit the same," Naidu said.

Several members of the House were surprised to see the marshals in new uniform abandoning the earlier attire which included a turban. As per sources, white uniforms, resembling those of Navy officers, had been decided for marshals for the summer season.
