New Delhi: The Congress on Wednesday proposed a constitutional amendment to ensure that any resolution brought up on the floor of House should be introduced by the Chair, not the government.

The proposal was made at an all-party meeting in Parliament called by Parliamentary Affairs Minister Venkaiah Naidu on Wednesday ahead of the winter session of Parliament.

The proposal was mooted by the Congress ahead of a two-day discussion on the Commitment to the Constitution of India to mark the 125th birth anniversary of Baba Saheb Ambedkar, the chief architect of the Indian Constitution.

The discussion will mark the beginning of the winter session of Parliament.

“We welcomed the government’s proposal of two-day discussion on the ‘Commitment to the Constitution of India’ … But we gave a proposal that if any resolution was brought and passed in the Parliament, it should not come from the government. It should come from the ‘Chair’ of either Lok Sabha or Rajya Sabha,” said Leader of opposition in the Rajya Sabha, Ghulam Nabi Azad, while addressing media persons.

Azad said: “Whatever is the resolution must be agreed upon by the leaders of all the political parties. The proposal was supported by other political parties and parliamentary affairs minister accepted our demand.

“They are going to prepare a draft which will be circulated among the leaders of the political parties.

“We have assured the government that we are a responsible political party and we would like to support each and every bill on merit,” he added.

“We have also made it clear that our concerns must be taken on board and the suggestions that the opposition gives from time to time should be accommodated,” he said.

Congress helping those who want to weaken Army: Modi, wikimedia commons

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday accused the Congress of aiding those who he said want to weaken the Indian Army and raising questions over the government and even the Supreme Court over Rafale fighter jets.

“Today, there are two camps in the country. One is the government that is trying to strengthen our Army. The other wants to weaken our Army at any cost,” Modi said, flagging off the 900th coach of Modern Rail Factory and a Humsafar Rake in Rae Bareli, UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi’s Lok Sabha constituency.

“The country has been witnessing that the Congress stands by those powers who don’t want our armed forces to be strengthened,” he added, in an obvious reference to Sonia Gandhi’s son and Congress President Rahul Gandhi who has been accusing corruption in the Rafale jet deal with France.

The Prime Minister said the country was watching “such people” who he added were “getting support of countries pitted against India”.

“What is the reason that people in Pakistan clap when some of our leaders speak?”

The Prime Minister pointedly accused the Congress of raising questions over the dignity of the Defence Ministry, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, Air Force, France and the Supreme Court over the purchase of Rafale jet aircraft.

“Some people only accept lies and speak lies. For them the country’s Defence Ministry, Defence Minster and Air Force officers are liars. The French government is also a liar. Now, the country’s Supreme Court is also a liar for them.

“But truth does not need ‘shringaar’ and lies will always die. The country will never forgive the Congress over its attitude towards the Army.”

“What kind of people are they who do not care about the country? I know that they want to abuse Modi. They want to frame Modi for corruption. But I want to know why they have put the country’s pride at stake for this? Why is national security being put on stake?” (IANS)
