New Delhi, India, December 7: Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar, who is also Chairman of the Rajya Sabha, addressed the 99th Constitutional Amendment Bill on Wednesday, which opens the door to the National Judicial Appointment Commission (NJAC), which was canceled by the Supreme Court in 2015.The Parliament took a crucial decision in 2015 by passing the 99th Constitutional Amendment Bill, paving the way for the National Judicial Appointment Commission (NJAC).The above-mentioned points were greeted with unmissable enthusiasm.The Lok Sabha voted in favour on August 13, 2014, with no abstentions.According to Dhankhar, it has been rare in Parliamentary democracy that a Constitutional statute has received such ferocious support.After the Supreme Court scrapped this historic parliamentary mandate on October 16, 2015 by a majority of 4:1, the President of India gave his permission on December 31, 2014, said the Chairman of the Rajya Sabha.This is a grim example of severe abuse of parliamentary power and contempt for the interests of the people with whom this house and the Lok Sabha are embassy.Dhankhar noted that Parliament is the single and final determinant of the Constitution's architecture.We have to keep in mind that the predominance of the people's mandate, which is reflected in the Parliament, is the base of any basic structure in democratic governance. It is alarming to note that in the Parliament for the past seven years, there has been no attention given to such a vital component of the democratic fabric.This House, as the Lok Sabha's guardian of the people's ordainment, is given a duty to address the problem, and I am confident it will do so, he said.Authorityl positions in any office are obligated to act in accordance with high standards of propriety, honor, and decorum.It's time for all government departments to reflect and avoid any public display of conflicting stance trading or exchange of warnings emanating from these websites. It is an institution-wide seamless link marked by mutual trust and appreciation that leads to an ecosystem that is most suited to serve the nation.This House must create a conducive environment for the synergetic operation of Constitutional Institutions, stressing the importance of respecting Laxman Rekha, he said.In 2014, the National Democratic Alliance government passed the National Judicial Appointments Commission (NJAC) Act, which was introduced in order to reform the judiciary appointment process.The NJAC was a proposed body that would have been charged with the appointment and transfer of judges to the higher judiciary. The NJAC Act was struck down by the Supreme Court on October 16, 2015.The decision reaffirmed the collegium system of judges appointing judges.
