Temples of democracy for debate, not for disruption: VP Dhankhar

Meerut (UP): Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar on Saturday raised serious concern over repeated disruptions and disturbance in the Parliament and said that the temples of democracy are the place for debate, dialogue, discussion and deliberation and the behaviour of the members should be exemplary.

Addressing the Ayurveda Maha Sammelan held at Chaudhary Charan Singh University here, the VP said, “Democratic values are very important. We cannot allow the principles of democracy to be outraged, because we are not only the largest democracy in the world, but we ‘mother of democracy.”

Uttar Pradesh Governor Anandiben Patel and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath were present on the occasion.

He said that the Constitution makers of the country solved critical problems for three long years. “They solved contentious and divisive issues by debate, dialogue, discussion and deliberation. In those three years not a single member of the Constituent Assembly came into the well of the house, or raised slogans or displayed placards. They behaved in a manner which we can follow,” he said.

Dhankhar said, “Today why our conduct today is completely opposite to that is a matter of concern and contemplation. Make some drugs so that the dignity of the house remains maintained which is my biggest pain.”

He said that the behaviour of the members of the temples of democracy, including Legislative Assembly, Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha should be exemplary. “That place is for debate, dialogue, discussion and deliberation. There should be no disruption and disturbance there,” he said.

The VP said, “This will stop only when you keep such people, who create disturbance and disruption in a box. You will have to engage in a mass movement, then they will understand.”
