On Thursday, BJP leader L K Advani confessed that he felt like resigning. The continuing deadlock in both Houses of Parliament has time and again infuriated Advani. However, this time the BJP veteran went on record to say , “Mujhe toh lagta hai resign kar jaunga”.
The veteran BJP leader claimed that the House was not being gracefully upheld and pointed out that a meaningful solution to mitigate a problem is never reached through any sessions. The BJP leader reiterated his grievances by suggesting that the former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee would also have been perturbed to witness the state of affairs. He shared a dialogue with the party MPs.
Lok Sabha was adjourned post an intense havoc over demonetisation and Agusta-Westland chopper was rendered by both Opposition and Treasury benches.
Recently, Advani also criticised Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar for not “running the House”. Advani, was heard saying, “I am going to tell the Speaker that she is not running the House. I am going to say it publicly. Both sides are a party to this”. As other partymen tried to pacify him, he had retorted: “Why not adjourn (the House) sine die.”
On Thursday, Advani didn’t budge from the Lok Sabha even after adjournment. If sources are to be believed, he was heard telling Trinamool Congress’s Idrish Ali: “I want House to run gracefully even if just for a day.” He was among the last ones to leave the empty House.
True is the fact that the top notch in Indian politics indulge in heavy howling and accusation. The grief which sustains yet is that there is no substantial action or implementation strategies being discussed. The session gets consumed with unending accusations by the opposition, leaving no time for meaningful discussions to counter existing problems.
