Let Par­lia­ment Func­tion

The Economic Times - - The Edit Page -

The Op­po­si­tion in Par­lia­ment may re­port­edly keep away from de­bates on Bud­get 2017-18 fol­low­ing the PM’s re­mark on his pre­de­ces­sor last week. That would be un­for­tu­nate. It has be­come a tra­di­tion for leg­is­la­tors in In­dia to find some al­ibi or the other to avoid in­house de­bates. Leg­is­la­tors rep­re­sent the peo­ple and should give pri­or­ity to their work. It makes sense to have a strict code on par­lia­men­tary be­hav­iour to dis­cour­age dis­rup­tions and en­cour­age de­bates with ob­jec­tive cri­te­ria.
