Vice-President M. Venkaiah Naidu on 29 October in the event held at Delhi university stressed for having parliamentary reforms as a serious need this Tuesday.
His statement that Its need for reorientation for MPs so need to restore people’s trust in parliamentary institutions.
Declining number of attendance in legislatures, persistent disruptions, quality of debates were declining, people entering now have more of criminal records, high degree of absenteeism, lack of women representatives, money and muscle power hiking in elections, lack of inner democracy , were some of the major issues highlighted by Mr. Naidu(Rajya sabha chairman)
He mentioned that highly qualified and literate people are reluctant to work for the university. Ironically they even don’t want to participate in working for the university as compared to times before, this not just has declined trust by people but also has deteriorated the quality as compared to before.
In order to move a step forward in curing problems, Mr Naidu has suggested some measures that can be taken. All this includes the need to review first anti-defection law which is to prevent political defections due to the reward of office or any other. The Second was the whip system which stifles reasonable dissent within parties.
Mr Naidu also stated that there is a great need to motivate women to participate in election activities and be a part of committees, regular reports should be taken of what all works are being done and what still needed to be performed. Moreover not just this ethical inventions are needed to be performed for the betterment and also there is a need for simultaneous elections and much more
