Students can be controlled in their schools but elected lawmakers in the Parliament can’t be tamed. This is a factual truth in front of the whole country. It remains quite something unpleasant. Looking into one another’s eyes they deem their colleagues are enemies at war; it is growing and growing.
Our representatives at every dome of democracy create similar noisy scenes for proving their political views better than others. In this resentment and bitterness, they forget about the common people who vote them to bring improvements to their poor conditions.
They begin to act like powerful authoritarians. Though they sit together, they do not often make trivial talk. The politicians’ unpredictable behaviour during the discussion remains not worth seeing and it never looks quite interesting on the television.
Their mouths cry out allegations and counter-allegations and their pulse waves up and down in the arguments. Even the TV news channels’ discussion is not bereft of this extremity. Proficient politicians regret not indulging in non-serious doings as they all of a sudden distance themselves from the decorum which they need to preserve during the session or attending the TV discussion on the news channels.
It is with these points the Lok Sabha speaker Sumitra Mahajan realised painful strain of the situation and even the news anchors used to maintain that our politicians were poorly behaving – even worse than school-going children. She hauled up the elected parliamentarians by saying that making noise was no good way and sheer waste of time. Chairing the meeting of Rules Committee she discussed a law to punish erring members with disciplinary action.
She urged them to discuss any issue in a dignified manner. Even the foreign notables raise a query on such kind of ruckus. The students remain stupefied with the class teacher but the elected members show no respect for the rules. That is why it is rightly said that schools are running better than the House.
Just the similar sort of situation appeared at the television news channels’ debate where no decency was observed. There were many instances of verbal and physical fights. The anchor finds him weaker before the guests’ coarse sophistication.
Spats amid the BJP and other party spokespersons are appearing almost every day. Their belligerent moods more often culminate in a verbal fight. The TV studios were nearly turning into Sultani Akhada where spokespersons blame one another beyond the accepted logic of the healthy debate.
The views find more often a verbal fight and physical brawls too. Unforgettable slapping sight during an excited discussion can never be forgotten. Using sarcastic words for one another were not considered unnecessary during the debate. What stunned the TV viewers is the flaring of personal attacks directly as if the use of refined words are over and done. The uproar is a common feature in the limited time discussion.
