Can't be there some provision of imposing fine on the Members of Parliament for wasting of county's precious time in wasteful interruption of House Proceedings?
According to statistics compiled by the Lok Sabha secretariat,, as many as 634 hours were lost on account of interruptions and adjournments until the 12th session of the 15th Lok Sabha, totalling more than 50% of 1,157 hours of sittings of the House.
We never try to apply our discretionary rights. From the mountain hills of Kashmir down south, west to east there is one common trait with the politicians – corruption and use ofmuscle power in one way or other for gaining political advantage at the cost of public money. Most of the politicians in India have accumulated large amount of black money.
Thinkers believe that Indian leaders in politics and business are so blissfully blinded by the new, sometimes ill-gotten, wealth and deceit that they are living in defiance, insolence and denial to comprehend that the day will come, sooner than later, when the have-nots would hit the streets. In a way, it seems to have already started with the monstrous and grotesque acts of the Maoists. And, when that riot occurs, not one political turncoat will escape being lynched. The drumbeats for these rebellions are going to get louder and louder as our leaders refuse to listen to the voices of the people. Eventually, it will lead to a revolution that will spill to streets across the whole of India, I fear. Perhaps we are the architects of our own misfortune. It is our sab chalta hai (everything goes) attitude that has allowed people to mislead us with impunity. No wonder Aesop said. “We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to high office.” We don't punish any one. So many scams and all get a free pass. The legal system delays so much that the guilty never get punished and they get a chance to destroy documents and evidences that goes against them to alter the verdict whenever it comes. One wonders whose fault is this. The voters or the educated who do nothing or a total take over of politics by rich goons and mafia.
Neither ruling nor opposition can be branded as free from such allegations most suited for any politicians. We cannot accuse the ruling party or opposition solely. They will keep on committing and sponsoring criminal scams, stonewalling the evidence gathering and judicial process and expect that everything should be brushed under the carpet. They can surely expect the opposition to play ball and silently receive under the table commission to keep mum. It is high time the public threw out all the known criminals and black marketer of public money of India to bring ina fresh lot.
Thanks to the politicians, nation building is less important than destructive politics and gain for individuals and their respective parties are of prime importance. Disrupting the Parliament even for petty issues has become the order of the day. There will be few more Loksabhas likely to be less productive in future. Long live our democracy and corrupt leaders!
