Parliament adjourned sine die amidst members misconduct concern

The Parliament was adjourned sine die today, five days ahead of the schedule, thereby bringing an end to the three-month long Budget Session.

New Delhi, May 17 : The Parliament was adjourned sine die today, five days ahead of the schedule, thereby bringing an end to the three-month long Budget Session.

The session that witnessed important legislations like Sports Broadcasting Signals (Mandatory Sharing with Prasar Bharati) Bill, the Banking Regulation (Amendment) Bill and the National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research (Amendment) Bill, being passed, however, saw important observations being made by Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh and Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee on its last working day.

Before adjourning the session, Chatterjee expressed concern over the loss of useful time of the Parliament due to "forced interruptions and adjournments."

"In spite of my earnest requests, some of the very important legislative and financial business before the House had to be completed without discussion," Chatterjee observed and added that the Lok Sabha lost over 73 working hours in the adjournments.

In the Rajya Sabha, Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh also urged the members to adhere to the parliamentary code and conduct.

"At the time of 50 anniversary of our independence, this very parliament has adopted a code of conduct which lay down that members will never disrupt the question hour, which laid down that members will not walk into the well of the house, all those things seems to have forgotten. I am not apportioning blame on anyone but I think it is our duty as parliamentarians to reflect on what has been going, whether it enhance the ... of parliament in the eyes of people or not," Dr. Singh said.

He expressed hope that the Monsoon Session would be conducted in 'cooler' and calmer atmosphere.
