The government has cleared the Lokpal Bill and is all set to present it in the session of the Parliament. It is also going to discuss the Justice Verma commission report on Delhi rape case. There are possibilities that government may amend certain laws of introduce new bills to give effect to the recommendations of the commission.
Besides this likely legislative business the main opposition Bhartiya Janata Party has also declared its political agenda not to allow the Parliament to function unless the Union Home Minister Mr Shushil Kumar Shinde do not apologise for his statement of Hindu terrorism on his removal from the Cabinet. Although the Congress has explained its stand that terrorism is a terrorism. It has no colour or religion in it. But the hand stand has not cosed so far. It appears to be permanent agenda of the BJP to disrupt the Parliament on this or that issue all the time.
The Parliament which frame laws, rules and regulation for the governance of the country itself is not allowed to function on rules. It is provided in the rules of conducts of its proceedings and business that Parliament is for debate and discussion and any spot of demonstration inside the House are prohibited. The members will speak from their seats only under called up by the chair. But there days demonstrations be staged there members leaving their seats gather before the produce of the speakers all speaking and raising blossom. The member who is called to speak can not speak at all. Under such conditions the houses are adjourned for some time initially and later for the whole day.
Such trends have percolated to the State legislatives also. There is a new political phenomenon of civil society. A handful persons form it by this name and declare themselves as senior of nation, its morality, integrity and purity of its political life. They are responsible to none but to themselves Mr Anna Hazare has started this trend on Lokpal. Being some thing new it came into lime light out of curiocity in Delhi but later it flopped like damp squid in Mumbai. Now it is disintegrating into factions and sections. Strangely Ann Hazare has declared that he has rejected the Lokpal Bill cleared by the Union for the presentation before the Parliament. He has early right as a citizen of India to oppose support it but he is nobody to accept or reject it.
It is for the Parliament to do so. There is sharp erosion in the dignity and decorum of the Parliament and it is every serious matter of not allowing to function. There no way of opposition. There are apprehensions it the Parliament is disrupted again an Shinde issue. The Lokpal Bill, Verma Commission report and discussion on Delhi case will not be taken up. Now it is time for all to sit up and provides over the ultimate fate of Parliamentary democracy.
