Par disruptions can spell doom for democracy, warn Cong

Congress cautioned that politicians were "writing their own obituaries prematurely" by making legislative institutions dysfunctional.



New Delhi: With BJP`s disruption of Parliament clearly weighing heavily on its mind, Congress Sunday cautioned that politicians were "writing their own obituaries prematurely" by making legislative institutions dysfunctional.

Party spokesperson Manish Tewari was reacting to President Pranab Mukherjee urging political parties to work out a mechanism to resolve differences to ensure that the Parliament can function.

"The growing irrelevance of Parliamentary and legislative institutions is subversive of the Indian democratic experiment. That day is not too far when people would seriously question representative democracy as it is constituted. By making legislative institutions dysfunctional, politicians are writing their own obituaries prematurely," Tewari told a news agency.

His remarks came close on the heels of the conclusion of the Monsoon Session of Parliament, which witnessed two-third of its proceedings being washed out following disruption by the BJP over the coal block allocation issue.

The BJP demanded resignation of the Prime Minister in the wake of the CAG report, which has spoken of undue benefit to private players to the tune of Rs 1.86 lakh crore.
