Parliamentary Sessions LS and RS Adjourned Due to Chaos Spreading from Sansad to Streets.
The Indian parliament is one of the most important institutions of the country’s democracy. It is where elected representatives come together to discuss and debate issues that impact the lives of millions of people. However, in recent times, the functioning of parliament has been disrupted by chaos and disorder. The most recent example of this was the adjournment of both the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha due to chaos spreading from Sansad to the streets.
The chaos began on August 3, 2021, when the government introduced two bills in parliament – The General Insurance Business (Nationalisation) Amendment Bill, 2021, and The Commission for Air Quality Management in National Capital Region and Adjoining Areas Bill, 2021. The opposition parties were not happy with the bills and demanded that they be sent to a parliamentary committee for further scrutiny. However, the government refused to do so and went ahead with the introduction of the bills.
This led to uproar in parliament, with opposition MPs storming the well of the house and disrupting proceedings. The speaker had to adjourn the Lok Sabha several times before finally adjourning it for the day. The Rajya Sabha also witnessed similar scenes, with opposition MPs shouting slogans and disrupting proceedings. The chairman had to adjourn the house several times before finally adjourning it for the day.
The chaos did not end there. The opposition parties took to the streets to protest against the government’s move. Protests were held in different parts of the country, with some turning violent. In Delhi, protesters clashed with the police, leading to several injuries and arrests.
The chaos in parliament and on the streets is a reflection of the deepening political divide in the country. The opposition parties feel that the government is not willing to listen to their concerns and is bulldozing its way through parliament. The government, on the other hand, feels that the opposition is obstructing progress and development.
The adjournment of parliament due to chaos is not a new phenomenon. In fact, it has become a regular occurrence in recent years. This has led to a loss of valuable time and resources, as important legislative business gets delayed or postponed.
It is important for all stakeholders to understand that parliamentary democracy is based on mutual respect and dialogue. Both the government and opposition have a responsibility to ensure that parliamentary proceedings are conducted in a peaceful and orderly manner. They must also be willing to listen to each other’s concerns and work towards finding common ground.
In conclusion, the adjournment of parliamentary sessions due to chaos spreading from Sansad to streets is a worrying trend. It highlights the need for all stakeholders to work towards strengthening parliamentary democracy in India. Only then can we ensure that the voices of all sections of society are heard and that our democracy remains vibrant and healthy.
