CAB on the verge of dissolution

 

The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) today failed to tabled the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill in the Upper House of the Parliament with opposition firmly opposing the Bill. Rajya Sabha Chairman and Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu has adjourned the House on the early hours after several ruckus created by the opposition in the House. Though there is no Officail statement as to why Home Minister Rajnath Singh failed to table the Bill but speculation arise that it was because the NDA did not have the required numbers to ensure the passage of the Bill.

 

It may noted that a Bill pending in the Upper House which has not been passed by Lok Sabha does not lapse on the dissolution of Lok Sabha, but a Bill which is passed by Lok Sabha and is pending in Rajya Sabha will lapses on the dissolution of Lok Sabha. The Citizenship Bill was passed by the Lok Sabha on January 8th 2019 which saw wide protest in the entire North Eastern States. Since the Rajya Sabha failed to pass the Bill today it would be taken into consideration that the Bill will have to face dissolution before the next Lok Sabha 2019.

Whenever the elections, be it of the Lok Sabha or State Assembly or even of the civic bodies whatsoever, are round the corner, all the political parties which are in the fray remain busy preparing poll strategies to put up brave front against the opponents with a view to winning as much seats as possible to brighten the prospects of taking over the rein of government. It is possible, only if a political outfit has a good service record. A ruling party becomes popular among the electors if it fulfils at least some basic needs of the people or delivering those goods. But, the ruling BJP loses much of its credibility among some sections of voters in several Hindi heartland states such as Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh where it had strong footing for not doing what it had promised before elections.

Do we really 'Stand By'

As a Service, we have been declaring, to the world, that we 'stand by' our colleagues, who have apparently been dealt unfairly. The question remains, what do we mean by that? Are we willing to go to jail for them? Or are we willing to go jail with them? Perhaps we can pool in their legal fees then. Except that marquee lawyers take upwards of a crore per hearing, and divided among 5000 odd IAS officers, that is some 2000 rupees per hearing per officer. Not a fortune, but surely it would make many people wary of standing by.
