శాసనసభల్లో అనకూడని మాటలు


Article 208 (1) of the Indian Constitution empowers each House of the Legislature of a State to make rules for regulating its Procedure and conduct of its Business. In pursuance of the said article, the Legislative Assembly of Andhra Pradesh, immediately after the formation of the State of Andhra Pradesh, has framed its own Rules of Procedure and Conduct of Business.
Words containing insinuations, and offensive and unparliamentary expressions should be carefully avoided by all when addressing the Chair.

"Communist" is also un-parliamentary! Really??

Its very strange. There are two known Communist parties and innumerable splinter groups and all of them in some way or other use the word Communist in the name of their party. If and when any one of them find a place in the House, how such party member shall be identified when the word "Communist" itself is un-parliamentary!

In the present day of live telecast of the proceedings of either Legislative Assembly or Lok Sabha, withdrawing a word already uttered or expunging the spoken word is not only meaningless but quite ridiculous also. When the proceedings were in "camera" OK,the withdrawal or expunging has some value. But not the proceedings are telecast live.

Further, there is a problem associated with live telecast of the proceedings of the Legislature or Parliament, as the "Honourable" members tend to play for the galleries and it is happening like that only. If live telecast is stopped and only edited versions are telecast, the unruly behaviour and "Uttara Kumara Prajnalu" are likely (I hope) to come down.

Now it appears to be free for all behavior even in Chambers of Legislators.
