Bir Devinder concerned over disorder in Assembly

punjab Updated: Mar 17, 2013 20:55 IST

Former Punjab Vidhan Sabha Deputy Speaker Bir Devinder Singh was strongly critical of indefencible disorder in the Assembly on March 13, saying that it was difficult to describe in parliamentary language.

On Sunday, he said that on the floor of the House, legislators tried to prove their "physical capability rather than the mental faculty" and their poor conduct was unbecoming of a legislator.

He added that unfortunately, argumentative parliamentarians were vanishing from debates like rare species of birds.

"The Punjab has hardly forgotten the exchange of expletives between Rana Gurmeet Singh and Bikram Singh Majithia in the previous assembly sessions, he pointed out.

Singh said, "It is a sad reflection on the wisdom of the leaders of the public opinion that they have acquired new tools to express their anger and disenchantment against the government's acts of omission and commission."

"These new found tools call for much worse public disbain. They are the elected people at the helm of affairs of the State and hence are expected to maintain calm despite the gravest provocation," he added.
