An­swer Run­ning Into ‘Record 233 Pages’

The Economic Times - - Pure Politics -

VP Hamid An­sari had an in­ter­est­ing point to make in the Ra­jya Sabha dur­ing Ques­tion Hour on Mon­day. He said a writ­ten an­swer to a ques­tion runs into a ‘record’ 233 pages. He lamented that it is hu­manly not pos­si­ble for any mem­ber to read such a long re­ply in a short time — the an­swers are handed over a few min­utes be­fore the Ques­tion Hour be­gins. When An­sari said some sys­tem will have to be worked out, Congress’ Digvi­jaya Singh sug­gested that an­swers be pro­vided on­line. His party col­league Jairam Ramesh quipped that the an­swer is ‘valu­able’ and other min­is­ters should also give such lengthy replies.
