Ansari for automatic suspension of members creating ruckus

New Delhi, April 21, 2013, DHNS: 1:45 IST
Seeking to ensure a smooth Budget Session, Rajya Sabha chairman M Hamid Ansari on Sunday suggested incorporation of a rule for automatic suspension of members for creating grave disorder and deferment of live telecast of the proceedings to keep the House in order but members did not agree on such measures.

This came at an all party-meeting which Ansari called to evolve a consensus among the members over measures to correct the "collective behaviour" which often leads to frequent disruption of the House. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was also present in the meeting.

Suggesting measures to ensure uninterrupted proceedings of the Rajya Sabha, Ansari expressed his “agony and distress” over the unruly scenes created by the Opposition members in the House on the last day of first part of the Budget Session on March 23.

The AIADMK members had broke mikes and hurled papers while raising the Sri Lankan Tamils issue.

Consultations

The Upper House Chairman said that consultations should be initiated for incorporation in the rules a provision of automatic suspension for a specified period of a member who create grave disorder in the House, underling that a similar rule existed in the Lok Sabha.

“Since one possible objective of disruptions is to seek instant publicity through live telecast of proceedings, we may dispense with simultaneous telecast of the Question Hour and instead have it on a deferred basis,” the sources quoted Hamid as suggesting at the meeting.

Noting that there was a feeling outside of “collective shame and hooliganism” after the March 22 incident in the Rajya Sabha, the vice president was of the view that deferment of the live telecast of proceedings on such occasions and naming members, who troop into the Well of the House, in the Rajya Sabha bulletin could help bring some order.
