The NJAC Act was a horrific example of extreme abuse of parliamentary autonomy and irresponsibility of the peoples mandate, said Rajya Sabha Chairman Jagdeep Dhankar . Parliament is the sole and supreme predictor of the Constitutions style, said Dhankar .
New Delhi, India, December 7: The Supreme Court struck down the NJAC Act in 2015, marking a historic moment in democratic history, when a properly legitimized constitutional rule was judicially overturned and was a horrific example of extreme abuse of parliamentary autonomy and irresponsibility of the people's mandate, said Rajya Sabha Chairman Jagdeep Dhankar.In his first speech in Rajya Sabha on the first day of the winter session of Parliament, the Vice President The bill received unprecedented support, and the two Houses approved it almost unanimously in August 2014.This is not the first time a Constitutional bill has received such widespread support in Parliamentary democracy.Following the adoption of the Central Legislation by 16 State Assemblies out of 29 states, the process culminated in a Constitutional Clause; the President of India gave his approval under Article 111 on December 31, 2014, he said.There is no analogy to a political history in which a duly legitimized constitutional statute has been judicially overturned.We need to bear in mind that in the democratic structure fundamental to every Basic Structure is the preponderance of the people's responsibility, which is reflected in the Parliament.He said that Parliament is the sole and supreme predictor of the Constitution's style.It is troubling that on a pivotal issue that is so crucial to the political fabric, there has been no debate in the Parliament for more than seven years. The Vice President said that the principle of separation of powers is achieved when legislature, judiciary, and executive effectively work together, meticulously ensuring strict compliance to each jurisdictional unit.We are also faced with the horrifying reality of repeated incursions.This house is uniquely positioned to take positive steps to restore coherence in these wings of government.You all will want to think about and engage in a forward approach, he said. The legislature's ability to act in the exercise of its constituent power to amend, modify, or abolish any part of this Constitution in accordance with the rules is unqualified and supreme, and is unaffordable to executive authority or court intervention except for the purpose of deciding any lawsuit concerning a significant constitutional question as defined in article 145(3) of the Constitution.Parliament made positive structural governance reforms, according to the Vice President, as part of its Constitutional authority to amend.This has been achieved by the incorporation of Parts IX, IXA, and IXB into the Constitution, which provides a comprehensive framework for Panchayati Raj, Municipalities, and Co-operative Societies, said Dhankar.It is time for all constitutional authorities to reflect and silence any public display of conflicting position, sales, or exchange of advisements emanating from these platforms. Then, it is an organizational seamless link characterized by mutual confidence and admiration that leads to the development of the country's eco-system.To promote synergic functioning of Constitutional Institutions, this House must foster a healthy environment, emphasising the importance of recognizing Laxman Rekha, he said.Dhankar said he hoped to contribute to the development trajectory of the world's largest vibrant democracy and build its confidence, adding that the name Upper House or House of Elders, though not included in the official glossary, accurately represent the institution's distinctively important position.As we are in Amrit Kaal, we cherish one of the world's finest constitutions as our own. According to Shankar, the Constituent Assembly was still as representative as was practicable under the circumstances.The representation gradient has progressively improved with each election.The Constituent Assembly addressed pressing, complicated, and critical questions with authenticity, he said, exemplifying sublimity by participating in dialogue, talks, deliberations, and debate marked by a cooperative and consensual tone.Occupation and disruption of legislative processes as a matter of law or option are incompatible with democratic principles.The current situation on this front is troubling and makes it vital for us to adhere to the highest expectations outlined in the Constituent Assembly. Dhankar, speaking at the conference in Combodia to mark the India-ASEAN and East Asia Summits as well as the FIFA World Cup Inaugural Ceremony in Qatar, expressed pride and awe at the level of respect enjoyed by India's world leaders, expressing hope that our growth trajectory will contribute to global peace and prosperity.
