Cong not to nominate member in proposed inquiry panel on oppn ruckus in RS

Published

New Delhi, Sep 10: Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha on Friday replied to Chairman of the House on the proposal of forming a committee to inquire about the opposition ruckus in the last week of Monsoon Session in August. Sources said Mallikarjun Kharge in the letter wrote, “the party will not nominate a member.”

In the details, he said, “Constituting an inquiry committee on the August incident seems to be designed to intimidate MPs into silence, it will not only suppress the voices of the peoples’ representatives, but will deliberately brush aside all those who are uncomfortable with the government.

“I am, therefore, unequivocally against constituting an inquiry and the question of our party nominating a member does not arise.”

He said he was replying to the September 4 telephonic conversation with the chairman of the House.

He added that the opposition was keen to discuss issues, but the government did not allow it and the multiple notices are proof of it.

He said, “Parliament has a history of similar protests, many initiated by the ruling dispensation when it was in opposition.”

During the said incident on August 10, some MPs from the Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) climbed the reporters’ table in front of the Chair during a discussion on agriculture issues in the Rajya Sabha.

Aam Aadmi Party Rajya Sabha member Sanjay Singh and Pratap Singh Bajwa of the Congress were seen standing on the table in the video that was circulated in social media, on which the Chairman took a serious note.

The opposition MPs raised slogans and said that the relevant notices had not been taken care of. They accused the government of ‘hiding’ and avoiding discussion on the farmers’ agitation.

Rajya Sabha Chairman M. Venkaiah Naidu broke down when he spoke about the incident the next day. Naidu had condemned the act of the members and said that there are means and ways to raise voices but this was not the way and it was not permissible in the democracy and he said he could not sleep in the night.

Naidu said, the Chair and the area around the parliamentary reporters and Secretary General chair is considered Sanctum sanctorum of the House and “all sacredness of this House was destroyed… when some members sat on the tables and some climbed on the tables in the House.”

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
