The speaker of Uttarakhand Vidhan Sabha Prem Chand Agarwal has said that increasing capacity of members of legislative bodies is important for success of parliamentary democracy in the country. He was speaking during the seventh conference of Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) at Uttar Pradesh (UP) Vidhan Sabha at Lucknow on Friday.
Speaking during the inaugural session, the Lok Sabha speaker, Om Birla said the responsibility of public representatives has increased in recent years with increase in faith of people in democracy. He said that disagreement is a democratic expression but it should be expressed within set parameters.
The chief minister of UP, Yogi Adityanath said that disruption of the house not only obstruct the work of democratic institutions but also weaken the basic essence of democracy.
The Uttarakhand speaker said that the constitution has provided elaborate powers to the members of the assemblies for fulfilling their duties. He said that more than 100 amendments in the constitution suggest that the process of law making is sensitive and full of life. Agarwal regretted that the inclination of the members towards making laws is getting decreased and in absence of necessary homework, discussions on many bills which includes budget have become superficial.
