Minister of Internal Affairs addressed MPs on “How to be an effective parliamentary speaker”

New Delhi: The Minister of the Interior of the Union Amit Shah today urged newly elected MPs to overcome their political differences and contribute to the creation of New India through their effective participation in the discussions in the House.
Addressing newly elected members of the New Delhi Parliament on the topic of “How to be an effective parliamentary speaker”, Shah advised them to study parliamentary rules, traditions and exploit all resources available in the parliamentary library to become effective and ideal parliamentarians.
He said that MPs should raise issues that are relevant only to parliament, and their speeches must contribute to understanding the issue. He underlined the need for monitoring temporal discipline during parliamentary proceedings.
Chess said that each Lok Sabha is represented by more than 15 people and therefore has great responsibility in meeting their aspirations.
Pointing out that Indian democracy is the oldest and largest in the world now at the peak of Parliament, Amit Shah said that members should be aware that their speeches and actions are being watched all over the world and that they should contribute to raising the effectiveness and image of legislation.
The interior minister said that deputies can express the views of the political party to which they belong, but at the same time one should not forget that passing laws is their first priority. Through participation in the process of passing laws and budgets, members should contribute to strengthening the reputation of parliament, he added.
He advised members to study debates during the drafting of the Constitution for better understanding. He said that the multiparty parliamentary form of democracy was adopted shortly after independence, bearing in mind the diversity in the country of language, religion, tradition, etc.
Citing examples of an effective parliamentarian, Shah said that BJP Ram Naik (current UP governor) in 1991 turned the issue of parliament into a brief debate on singing vandemarars in Kerala schools, which resulted in the acceptance of singing the National Song at home since then.
He also recalled the initiative of former Parliamentarian Somnath Chatterjee on the inclusion of Nepalese language in the eighth Schedule of the Constitution, which was later taken over from the Government and completed the necessary legislative process to that end.
