A spiritual guru is to try to calm rowdy Indian politicians whose outbursts have led to brawls in parliament.

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has been invited to deliver lectures on the Art of Living to the Orissa State Assembly.

It comes after lawmakers brawled inside the state parliament, reports the Hindustan Times.

Anup Sai, of the opposition Congress Party, was recently suspended from parliament for hurling slippers inside the assembly.

He said: “While highlighting the problems of the people, sometimes one gets carried away. I regret my conduct. I will, of course, be there.”

Pratap Jena, who represents the ruling Biju Janata Dal Party, said: “Ravi Shankar is expected to speak mainly on topics that will be of relevance to politicians.”
