Kurien tells RS members not to beat around the bush
New Delhi: Rajya Sabha Vice Chairman P J Kurien on Wednesday lost his cool during a debate in the House and asked members not to beat around the bush and make speak to the point.
The instruction from the Chair came during a half-an-hour discussion on "promotion of entrepreneurship and self-employment among minorities".
He said this when Mohammed Adeeb (Ind) exceeded the time allotted to him.
"Everybody knows the problems...You need not make long speeches but straightway raise questions on the issue," he told
members and even cited Parliamentary rules.
Kurien said if the members failed to adhere to his instruction he would order expunging matters other than the questions raised.
When the next speaker, Husain Dalwai (Cong) greeted the Chair before making his point, Kurien said "do not waste time in niceties... I told you to come straightway to the issue."
P Rajeeve (CPI-M) won praise of Kurien for making two brief questions to Minority Affairs Minister Salman Kurshid.
"Everybody shall follow him (Rajeeve)," Kurien said.
When Ramkripal Yadav (RJD) and Avatar Singh Karimpuri (BSP) exceeded time the Chair pressed the bell and asked them to wind up.
