Reality Check India

UPA-Left finesses the NDA

Posted in Uncategorized by realitycheck on September 5, 2007

A recent post on The Acorn criticizes the newly formed UPA-Left committee to discuss the nuclear deal with the USA. I agree with most of the article, but I am not sure if there is a valid ground to challenge the composition of this committee. Two of its members are not elected representatives (Karat and Bardhan).  Even if a PIL were to be favorably ruled upon, it would result in a bigger farce. Two elected stooges would just replace Karat and Bardhan and relay the information via cell-phone-speakers (every MP has one these days).

The real stinker of the Congress led UPA :

1. Refusal to discuss in Parliament 

2. Refusal to convence a Joint Parliamentary Committee  to take into confidence all sides.

I will concede that a Reality Check on the exact state of our nuclear capabilities is not worth making public via the Parliament. I cannot however understand why the BJP’s request for a JPC has to be rejected outright. The Congress Party led UPA did not have any problem with constituting a JPC for the OBC quota issue.

Joint Parliamentary Committees are not so special

JPC for Office of Profit issue

JPC for OBC quota

JPC for Pesticides and Colas

JPC for Stock Market Scam

JPC for Wakf Boards

JPC for Forest Rights

. . . (list goes on)

We wont talk to you 

Government rejected NDA’s demand for constitution of a Joint Parliamentary Committee to go into the Indo-US nuclear deal issue on Wednesday, according to Opposition leader L K Advani.

A 15-member UPA-Left committee to go into the concerns raised by the government’s outside allies on the Indo-US civil nuclear deal was announced on Tuesday by External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee, who will be its convener.

The committee will have six members each from Congress and Left parties and one each from UPA constituents RJD, DMK and the NCP.

This clearly shows that the Left and the Congress are staging a drama on a grand scale. Their goal is to prevent a reasonable debate on the merits of the Indo-US nuke deal along the lines offered by Yashwant Sinha (BJP).

    Ya. That’s true. But the people won’t see the tactic within it . NDA needs to be more tactic in it’s approach , instead of roaring over anything & everything in the parliament.

    My spouse and i discovered a unique feature a little while ago concerning how to make money within buying antique watches bullion marketplace. I think it’s time appealing as the your old watches advertise is apparently overflowing as of late and very people have been for benefiting from the software.
