Book Offers a Peek into RS Functioning

  •  A commemorative volume on the role of Rajya Sabha, released, not only provides insights into the functioning of the Upper House, but showcases sharp comments from members on changes in the functioning of the House over the decades.
  • In the book, released during the 250th session of the House of Elders, the leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha, Ghulam Nabi Azad, cites the British Raj to question the ruling National Democratic Alliance government's reluctance to send some bills for deeper parliamentary scrutiny. Trinamool Congress floor leader Derek O'Brien, on the other hand, takes jibes at some parties for changing their policies on a "day-to-day basis".
  • In the book, Azad recalls that, in Colonial India, the "Champaran Agrarian Bill" was introduced in then Bihar-Orissa legislative assembly, several members demanded that it should be referred to a select committee. The Bill had come in the wake of Mahatma Gandhi's Champaran Satyagraha and the British rulers requested Gandhi to review it. Later, most of Gandhi's suggestions were accepted and the Bill was enacted in 1918. "If the British government was amenable to the suggestions of the members of the Assembly to send a draft bill to a Select Committee, then why is the government of India unwilling, after more than seven decades of Independence, to subject legislative proposals to detailed scrutiny?"
