Not all protests in

Not all protests in Parliament are a waste of time or money who was the then leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha,had said ".But parliament being used as a forum in more than one ways to expose the weaknesses of the government I think is a positive development and to that extent I think this Parliament has done well" He argued "the responsibility of restoring sanity and peace in the House belongs to the ruling party and if the ruling party can’t put its own house in order." Also note the other argument put forward by the Opposition: The BJP is the pioneer of the resign-first-talk-later policy If the BJP was justified in seeking the exit of tainted UP ministers as a pre-condition for letting Parliament function; the Congress is justified in pressing hard for its demand for the resignation of Sushma Swaraj Vasundhara Raje and Shivraj Singh Chouhan All governments are guilty of using brute majority for ramming through opposition Every party uses disruptions as a ploy to embarrass and paralyse the government The bigger the majority the thicker is the skin of the government and the more resolute the defiance by the Opposition During Rajiv Gandhi’s tenure as PM the Congress used its brute majority to silence the Opposition on several occasions Like Sumitra Mahajan the then Speaker Balram Jakhar suspended several MPs for demanding that the Thakkar Commission report be made public The commission had looked into the assassination of Indira Gandhi and submitted its report to the home minister in February 1986 It was leaked selectively over the next few years to embarrass several Congress politicians but was concealed from public Similarly a Joint Parliamentary Committee to look into the Bofors deal became a farce when it became an all-Congress affair The Public Accounts Committee chairmanship was taken from the Opposition and several of its legitimate demands were ignored In the end the Opposition became so upset with Rajiv Gandhi’s government that 106 MPs resigned en masse from Parliament forcing an early election A decade later the Congress boycotted defence minister George Fernandes in Parliament after the Tehelka expose; a strategy that was later replicated by the BJP against Railways minister Lalu Prasad Yadav when he was named in the fodder scam Finally Parliament was stalled by endless protests when the Opposition demanded the resignation of tainted UPA ministers in the previous Lok Sabha The short point: Indian political parties feed off each other’s past and unruly behavior There isn’t a hint of permanent principles or ethics in their protests They just hide behind precedence as provocation for stalling Parliament The current impasse unfortunately appears similar to Rajiv Gandhi’s misadventures in Parliament Back in the 80s he unified the disjointed opposition by misusing his brute majority and humiliating rivals The suspension of 25 Congress MPs has once again united the Opposition-bringing sworn rivals like the Left TMC SP AAP and JD (U) together It will only make life difficult for Modi in the Rajya Sabha the spokesperson said. he said. the railway board started the process of drawing up a blueprint to interconnect the four metros,000-kilometre network of semi-high speed routes connecting the four major cities is likely to be launched on 15 August 2022 to coincide with 75 years of India’s Independence.Daman Checking the balance The prime minister’s exhortation to the judiciary to evolve an internal mechanism for self-assessment and the chief justice’s remark that the executive and the judiciary were siblings and should work together could go a long way in clearing the air between these two arms of the state.Mohali Bad Friday This refers to ‘SC judge Kurian Joseph says he is deeply hurt over CJI’s decision to hold conference on Good Friday’ (IE, Puri, have taken a position that until they apologise in public.
