Opposition takes ruling party to task at Youth Parliament

Hot debates took place as the 'opposition' parties took the 'ruling' party to task on pressing issues such as problems caused by demonetisation, GST and illegal migrants.

The 'Prime Minister', 'Home Minister' and other ministers answered the questions during the district-level youth parliament session organised by the Department of Parliamentary Affairs and PU Education department at MES College in Chikkamagaluru.

'Prime Minister' Bhuvaneshwari said that the illegal migrants will be driven off from the country. She added that more soldiers will be deployed at the borders.

She was responding to the allegation by Opposition leader Chinmayi Premkumar, who said that the illegal migrants from Bangladesh have been issued Aadhar card and voters' ID. The migrants have been involved in extremist activities, she alleged

'Home Minister' Anvith Kulal clarified that the central government has not issued any identity cards to the illegal immigrants.

'Parliament' Member K S Sonal raised concern on the increasing atrocities against dalits, minorities, women and children. She also said that demonetisation has made the lives of the poor and middle class miserable.

The opposition leaders cried foul on GST and claimed that the move by the government has resulted in skyrocketing of the prices of daily commodities.

The 'PM' justified the implementation of the GST bill and said that the new system is not meant to create any problems.

The house was marred by chaos, following a protest by the opposition members. The 'Speaker' adjourned the house for some time.

Government PU College student Chinmayi Premkumar bagged the first prize in the competition.

K S Sonal and Anvith Kulal from MES College bagged the second and third prizes respectively.

MES College Honourary Secretary Dr D L Vijaykumar, Principal M B Jayashree, Administrative Officer Shantakumari and PU Education Department Deputy Director Devraj were present.
