Bric a brac : Who cares about Parliament business?

bjp members missing from committee

THE meeting of the Business Advisory Committees of both the Houses was recently convened to discuss which issues are to be tabled in the House. The Rajya Sabha committee meeting was chaired by its chairman Venkaiah Naidu, but no minister was present to represent the Government while the Opposition leaders were present. So the Opposition took advantage of the situation and decided the agenda of the Rajya Sabha with mutual consent. After stepping out from the meeting, Trinamool Congress’ Derek-O’Brien tweeted, “Seeing the attitude of the BJP, one can understand the honour left in them for democratic institutions.” While the Rajya Sabha committee meeting was underway, the meeting of the Lok Sabha committee also took place. Government representatives were absent even from that meeting. Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan thought the missing ministers were busy with the Rajya Sabha meeting. But when the hunt for the two began, neither Ananth Kumar nor Arjun Ram Meghwal could be found in the other meeting too. After a good half an hour, Meghwal walked into the meeting followed soon after by Ananth Kumar. Kumar reportedly tried explaining the delay by saying he was in a meeting with the PM. Opposition leaders just smiled. gfiles end logo
