New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi welcomed Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar in the Rajya Sabha on the first day of the winter session, although the opposition appealed to him to take care of himself as well. Yes, Leader of Congress in Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge, while welcoming the Vice President, said, "I hope you understand our sentiments. We will fully cooperate with you on our behalf.'' Not only this, but he also expressed his pain and said, "The language of numbers is understood in the House and the experience, arguments, and views of the leaders of any party are not taken into account." Mallikarjun Kharge said, "The opposition may be small in strength, but their experience and arguments have strength. But the problem is that they are replaced by numbers, not thoughts. Due to the reduced sittings of the House, there is less opportunity for the people of the weaker sections to talk. Bills are also passed in a very hasty manner at times. Earlier, Parliament used to run for more than 100 days in a year, but now it does not even run for 60 to 70 days. If there are meetings in the House, then good results will come.''
Not only this, but during this time, he also talked about the condition of the Congress in a poetic style and also gave advice to the opposition. Mallikarjun Kharge said, "Don't make any opinion about me, Ghalib, my time will also change, your opinion will also change." At the same time, the Congress president told the Vice President, "Your role as the guardian of the Upper House is much bigger than other responsibilities." You are the son of the land and the journey to reach here is important. You understand the parliamentary tradition. He was elected to the 9th Lok Sabha and was in the Ministry of Parliamentary Affairs. You have also been governor. Rajya Sabha is the permanent house and represents the states. The political picture of the states is visible here. All the veterans of the states have always been adorning here.
At the same time, the Congress leader said, "Rajya Sabha has strengthened the tradition of dialogue in Indian democracy. Just as Parliament is made up of two Houses, democracy is made up of the opposition and the ruling party. Therefore, it is necessary that the opinion of the opposition should also be taken. He said Babasaheb Ambedkar had talked about creating a separate secretariat for both houses so that the importance of both is maintained. The opposition may be small in numbers, but there is strength in their experience and arguments.''
At the same time, he said about the functioning of Parliament, "If there are meetings in the House, then good results will come." I hope that the days of discussion in your leadership will return. You are knowledgeable about the law. You understand very well that if a law is made in a hurry, there are flaws in it. Comments from the Supreme Court and the High Court on such laws also keep coming. So we want the bills to be properly tested. The opinion of the standing committees of the Lower House should be taken. The main task of the Rajya Sabha is to consider the bills in detail.
