Legislative process now a ‘fruitless exercise’, RSP MP tells Speaker, PM and Parl Affairs Minister | India News

NEW DELHI: Lok Sabha MP NK Premachandran appealed to Speaker Om Birla on Tuesday, asking him to protect the rights of the House and said the legislative process being carried out in the House has become a “fruitless exercise”.
Premachandran also served a copy of the notice to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Minister of Parliamentary Affairs, Pralhad Joshi.
In his notice, the RSP MP brought to the notice of the Speaker that government is passing crucial Bills having serious ramifications, with absolute haste and when there is complete pandemonium in the House.
“This is not fair, proper and in violation of Rules, conventions and precedents of the House. So far 7 Bills have passed without discussion when the House was not in order,” Premachandran said.
The nationalisation of General Insurance Sector, Amendment to IBC Code, Tribunal Reforms Bills, Essential Defense Service Bill were drastic structural amendments to the existing legislations.
“Passing of such very important Bills having basic change of policy of the Government without discussion is an insult to the Parliamentary Democracy. Legislative Process has become a fruitless exercise,“ the MP added.
Premachandran also said the Tribunal Reforms Bill 2021 was listed for Introduction on August 2, 2021 and the Bill was uploaded on the Lok Sabha website after the Introduction of the Bill.
“It is surprising to note that the said Bill is listed for consideration and passing on 3rd August 2021. The Right of Members to oppose the Introduction of the Bill and to prepare amendments and move the same is denied due to the paucity of time. This is not proper and in utter violation of Rules and Procedure of the House,” he added.
In light of the developments, Premachandran requested Birla to refer all other Bills listed in this session to the respective standing committees for detailed examination and for being discussed thread bare in order to protect the rights of members.
