235 Old Laws To Be Repealed In Lok Sabha As Congress Misses Opportunities To Ask Important Questions

The third sitting of the delayed Winter Session of the Parliament is ongoing. The Repealing and Amending Bill, The Repealing and Amending (Second) Bill, The Central Road Fund (Amendment) Bill, The Requisitioning and Acquisition of Immovable Property (Amendment) Bill. And in the Rajya Sabha The Companies (Amendment) Bill, The Indian Institutes of Management Bill and The Indian Institute of Petroleum and Energy Bill are to be considered and passed.

However, most sitting in front of television screens to watch our elected representatives debate on legislation crucial to the growth of the country were unsurprisingly disappointed.

Yet again, the Parliament has reduced to a school campus with MPs akin to unruly children and the speaker a tired teacher.

“LISTEN! This is wrong! You can’t do this! Outside you did drama about Winter Session not being held and now that it is being held you are screaming here in the well! STOP IT! STOP IT!” yelled Speaker Sumitra Mahajan at Congress MPs.

INC is clearly trying to play the game of ‘you didn’t let us speak, we won’t let you speak’, the BJP aced in previous parliamentary sessions.

BJP’s main Opposition raised the least issues, voluntarily missing the greatest opportunity to hold the ruling party responsible for the country’s current predicament. Instead, it screamed the loudest, asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to apologise for insinuating that former PM Manmohan Singh was colluding with Pakistan in Gujarat polls.

The proceedings of the lower house had to be adjourned amidst slogans, chants and a mock walkout by Congress members over the PM’s earlier remarks.

Evidently, the MPs didn’t pay heed to the Speaker’s pleas of not spilling politics or the results of the concluding elections into the House.

This, by the way, is the shortest Winter Session of the Parliament in nearly two decades where the ruling party passed two bills (The Repealing and Amending Bill, 2017 and The Repealing and Amending (Second) Bill, 2017) to repeal 235 old laws during the drama and chaos by adults in charge of our country.



It is a shame that Parliament sessions – meant for all parties to voice opinions and reach to a consensus – is a waste of time. Till now, the three sittings of the Winter Session have been a travesty – one where important legislations are being repealed and passed. Such misdemeanor by MPs makes a mockery of democracy, nothing more.
