Parth Gargava (2nd Year)
The second youth parliament of JIIT 128 got mixed reactions from the executive board, MPs andthe national press. On one side it was full of entertainment, and looked primarily like a face offbetween the MP of Vidisha and the MP of Solapur, and on the other hand, the council seemedfull of uninterested netas, except a few, not knowing what to do, and discussing topics far awayfrom the agenda given in hand (talk about being part of the Indian parliament!).
The debate was started by the MP of Solapur, and the council then quickly gained momentum discussing on nuclear development and policies which were never discussed.
the government should be of the people, by the people and for the people,
which was the only piece of entertainment for tabal chees, who had no other job, but to bangtheir chairs to death.
While some parliamentarians were busy getting there photographs clicked, most preferred tostay quiet and chit chat with their neighbors, which created a din (and thus, annoyed thespeaker even more).
An interesting conversation took place between the respected Speaker and the MP of saran,where the MP repeatedly asked for a plea to get his question against the UPA gets answered. Alot of ruckus was made, resulting in the speaker telling the MP to not waste more time on this.
The MP of Solapur talked about envisaging India as a super-power in 2030 and the need fornuclear development. (Maam, pehle itne ghotalon ki baat toh niptalo, fir jaake kuch super-power ka sochna). this was sharply followed by the MP of Vidisha putting forward a rhetoric byasking if nuclear reactors are actually how a country becomes a super-power! (Smart of you,Vidisha!)
In the middle of the session, the MP from Alathur, woke up to propose a motion on aadhar orUID. Sir, all I can say is, you truly belong to the Indian parliament, no clue of where you are andwhat you are speaking. Amidst all the chaos,was a massive walk out by the 3rdfront whohad allthe valid reasons to leave the council (like check out the caf and the chicks (oh sorry, mybad!!), and have a samosa).
At the end of the day, it was the executive board members who badly needed samosas (with dispirins) for the intolerable head-aches each one of them had!One funny instance was the delegate of Amritsar who spoke for the first time to raise a point ofpersonal privilege and fetch some water in the middle of a very heated argument, which brokethe council into a burst of laughter, while his fellow member of parliament (Rampur) wassending all kinds of Batman symbols through chits (you-know-who!).
Last, but not the least, the press concluded that the parliamentarians had a good dressing sense(except a few disasters, like the Vice chairs who did not care to change the college uniform),most MPs were smartly dressed
In case you feel offended by anything, we really dont give a damn! But we still sincerely apologize. Any kind of complaints or feedback will be entertained at http://www/abey-chal.com. Waiting for your valuable comments.
WANNA HAVE A SAMOSA?
MPs of Patiala, Aonla and Bijnor seemed confidentenough on the topic, with the MP of Bijnor gettingmassive applauds whenever she spoke. MP fromAonla (NDA) also got great appreciation on herfamous dialogue,
Kuch bola nahi toh kya, kam se kam ,ache kapdetoh pehne!
pehle apne aapko dekhiye, fir hume kahiye
Wise words from one of the MPs, in the JIIT128 Youth Parliament. Really we must learn a few witty retorts from them.
The youth parliament started on a very sincere and a professional note with many MPs from the Third Front (read unprepared) leaving after half n hour only. However the session was saved by the MPs of UPA and NDA who were prepared with hardboiled facts. Another thing to note is that the MPs of UPA were almost double to that of NDA. (Hard Luck NDA!)
The First Moderated Caucus started with the topic of Nuclear Power Plants and their contribution to India, with many MPs giving valid statements and of course unnecessary points of order (not surprised).
The NDA MPs raised valid points by questioning the safety and rehabilitation of the people residing near Power plants, while the UPA MPs stressed about the significant contribution the power plants will make to Indias energy needs. The UPA MPs tried to assure the opposition of the effective safety and security of these plants, but then can you really assure anybody in the parliament?
The UPA MPs were well armed with their arguments, listing the pros of nuclear plants and cons of thermal plants .The MPs from NDA on the other hand also stood their ground and kept questioning the UPA about the economic and safety issues of such plants. Predictably, the discussion turned into a blame game with table banging and terms like 2G scam, coal gate, and Petroleum scam cropping up. Finally the full of wisdom opening words of this article were heard which brought an end to this heated exchange. No wonder The Chair had to remind them twice of the topic.
The Second and the Third Moderated Caucus were as eventful with as much chaos and confusion. The point of order's were being thrown by the rupee, whose value incidentally is decreasing by the second .But I guess the MPs have much more important witticisms to share than discuss these petty issues.
However at the end of the day, this session would be called a Success as evidence based arguments were put up and thoughtful questions were asked. Of course, theproceedings, to put it delicately, were questionable .But what is Indian parliament without a few goof ups and one on one exchanges. The session ended with the aptly titled Press awards and the competitive awards being awarded. Few of the MPs were good; most of them were okay, while some of them didnt even try. I wish all of them, best of luck for all future endeavors.
