The prelude to the Budget session of Parliament has given ample indications about the way it is likely to proceed during the next few weeks. The clarion call about our democratic set up and the way it functions in the last five years is giving a thought about disruption by throwing a stand of walking away from the floor of the house at the slightest pretext of resisting Government’s stand. Our Parliament reflects the supreme will of the people. Democratic temper calls for debate, discuss rather than going in for disruption in the name of democracy. It is welcome change that the President has joined the bandwagon knowing fully well about the things to follow in the action packed week. It is time for all the members of the Parliament to discharge their solemn responsibilities in a spirit of co-operation and mutual accomodation rather than fighting out on every move by the ruling party. We look for congenial atmosphere inside the Parliament and the members should realise to act collectively and figure out in a flourishing way instead of paving way for disruption all the time.
