No disruptions, BJP for more debates in Parliament
New Delhi: In a change of strategy in
Parliament during the ongoing Monsoon Session, the opposition
BJP has decided not to indulge in frequent disruptions in the
proceedings and instead take on the government on vital issues
through debates and censure motions.
"It has been our intention from day one of this session
not to disrupt the proceedings. If you noticed, we did not
disrupt the House yesterday or today. BSP members had forced
an adjournment yesterday while our members remained seated
(during the Question Hour)," senior BJP leader Yashwant Sinha
Sinha moved the resolution on price rise and initiated
the debate on the issue. Earlier, the BJP had its way when the
government was virtually forced to agree to debate in both
Houses of Parliament on this sensitive issue under a clause
which entails voting.
A debate on corruption would also be held under the
same clause next week. Voting on the resolution, with the
Left, BJP and non-UPA parties on the same side, embarrasses
government more than a walkout or adjournment.
The BJP and its NDA allies had forced a complete
washout of the winter session of Parliament as the government
was not relenting to their demand for formation of a Joint
Parliamentary Committee to probe the 2G spectrum scam.
Though there were murmurs that this had led to a big
loss of tax-payers’ money, the atmosphere against corruption at
that time was such that the opposition gained from it.
However, the opposition has realised that unleashing
its fiery speakers in both Houses of Parliament would get
across the message to the people more effectively than
