Birla slams planned disruption of House proceedings

Bhopal: Emphasising that it is imperative to scotch the “new tradition of planned disruption of House proceedings,” Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla averred on Tuesday that comprehensive discussions ought to take place during the legislative process and decorum maintained in assemblies.

Addressing the inaugural session of a two-day awareness programme for the Madhya Pradesh Assembly’s newly-elected legislators in the state capital, the visiting dignitary said, “Bringing about only adjournments in any manner does not augur well for democracy. The opposition may protest against the Treasury benches, but disorderliness will impact positive productivity.”

Birla explained several techniques for proper utilisation of a platform, such as the Vidhan Sabha.

“Make your assembly a model one. Maximum attendance is a prerequisite for success. I have often experienced the fact that a representative remains restricted to his or her constituency. This is a matter of concern. Brief queries during the Question Hour render it uphill for the Minister to reply. Therefore, a query should be overarching and well-prepared. Every Vidhan Sabha must boast a research unit. Laws should be drafted in simple language. Rules related to acts must be scripted without delay; at times, the interval stretches to a couple of years,” he underlined.

Chief Minister Mohan Yadav was among the dignitaries who graced the occasion.
