Rajya Sabha: Naidu expresses concern over negative perception of House

Naidu V


The Rajya Sabha Chairman today expressed deep concern over the negative public perception of the House on account of forced and frequent adjournments.

Expressing his concern in the House, M. Venkaiah Naidu said, ever since he started chairing the proceedings of the Rajya Sabha, leaders of several parties conveyed their anguish over how they are being deprived of their right to raise issues of concern as some parties strategise for disruptions leading to forced adjournments.

He said, he had shared this with Floor Leaders on more than one occasion. Mr Naidu said, frequent disruptions follow a pattern aimed at not allowing the House to function.

He said, it was in this context that he thought it to adjourn for a longer period instead of resorting to brief adjournments. He said, he has told the Floor Leaders if the House proceedings are disrupted at the start, he would have no option but to adjourn the House till lunch.

Mr Naidu said, he wants the House to function effectively and constructively as per parliamentary procedures and also allow any issue to be raised by anybody as per rules and procedures.

He said, the intention behind adjourning the House for a longer period is to promote a sense of collective responsibility among the members in minimising or doing away with forced and frequent disruptions.
