Let the Parliament function in its last week – Expel MPs if necessary

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

Every Single minute of the Parliament during sessions costs Rs. 2.5 lakh to the exchequers. It’s almost four weeks now, both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha have not seen any business other than the passing of the union budget, that too without any discussion. Each day crores of our taxpayer’s money are wasted in the stalled procedures of the parliament.

 The Budget session 2018 will be remembered as a betrayal to the body politic of India. It is the responsibility of the Speaker of the Lok Sabha & the Chairman of the Rajya Sabha to ensure that the house function. The Supreme Court of India in the Raja Ram Lal Vs Hon’ble Speaker Lok Sabha (2007) has upheld the power of the speaker to expel the member if necessary. Neither the speaker nor the Chairman is helpless as they are making it look.

With almost 28 bills pending to be debated in Lok Sabha and around 39 bills pending to be discussed in Rajya Sabha including the important ones like the Whistle Blower Protection ( Amendment) Bill, 2015  and The Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement (Amendment) Bill, 2015. Let Parliament function in its last week.

Let parliament debate important issues of bank fraud, Special Status to Andhra Pradesh, Cauvery Management Board, Delhi Sealing, dilution of SC/ST Atrocities Act in its last week.

In the words of Ex-Chairman of Rajya Sabha let this session not be remembered as ‘Work Not Done’.
