Parliament is for discussion, not disruption: Dasgupta
New Delhi: With the opposition paralysing
both Houses of Parliament demanding a JPC probe into alleged "large scale corruption and scams", CPI leader Gurudas Dasgupta Wednesday had a word of caution for Parliamentarians.
"Parliament is for parliamentary business and the
Houses should run. There is always a feeling among people
that MPs are increasing their salaries but not doing their
work. People outside do not like to see it happening
frequently," Dasgupta said.
He said that Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha should not be disrupted as "they are for discussion and not disruption".
"All the issues should be discussed in the House. If
Government does not agree for discussion, then of course there
can be some deferment (of the business). But then Parliament
is not the only forum for political struggle. There can be
movements outside Parliament as well," Dasgupta said.
His reaction came after both the Houses were adjourned with the BJP-led opposition rocking Parliament over the issue
of corruption in Commonwealth Games, telecom 2-G spectrum and
Adarsh Housing Society.
