Shiv Sena said postponing winter session of Parliament was 'shameful', said- what kind of democracy is this?
National Desk: The Shiv Sena on Thursday condemned the Central Government's decision to postpone the winter session of Parliament, alleging that the Central Government wants to avoid discussing important issues such as farmer demonstrations, the country's economic situation and the deadlock on the border with China. The Shiv Sena said in an editorial in its mouthpiece Saamana that the session was canceled so that the opposition does not get a chance to question these issues. He said, what kind of democracy is this? The country can survive only when the voices of opposition parties are elevated in democracy. This democratic tradition of Parliament inspires the nation. Prime Minister Narendra Modi should follow this tradition.
The Central Government had recently said that there will be no winter session of Parliament this year due to the Kovid-19 epidemic and in view of this it would be appropriate to call a meeting of the budget session in January next year. The editorial said, "In a big democratic country in the world, despite Kovid-19, the elections did not stop." At the same time, we are not allowing only a four-day session of Parliament. He said, America had democratic elections and the country's president was changed. This is a powerful country's democracy, Whereas we locked the largest temple of democracy. On the criticism by the BJP's state unit of the decision to shorten the winter session in Maharashtra to two days in view of Kovid-19, he said that BJP's stand on democracy changes according to its convenience. The Marathi letter said that Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister Prahlada Joshi said that he has talked to all parties not to hold the winter session. He asked when and where this discussion took place?
The editorial said that it is shameful to cancel the session of Parliament citing Kovid-19, while Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself was addressing rallies in the recently concluded Bihar assembly elections. He made BJP national president J.J. Also mentioned P. Nadda's tour of West Bengal, where elections are to be held next year. He also said that all the people are going to their work but only those who run the country have locked the Parliament citing fear of Kovid-19. The editorial asked that if the Lok Sabha is to remain closed during Kovid-19, what is the need to create a new parliament. He asked, Is 900 crore rupees being invested in the construction of the new Parliament House, so that it can be locked from outside?
