Dr Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar speaks on The Surrogacy (Regulation) Bill, 2019
I stand here to support The Surrogacy (Regulation) Bill, 2019, and this is actually being brought before the ARC Bill. This is not right. The ARC bill must first be brought for the surrogacy to happen.
As I said, reproductive technology must be allowed, but I can’t speak, Ma’am. Please put your House in order. They are demanding that the Honourable Prime Minister should be here. This demand I am putting in a song:
“ওরে হাল্লা রাজার সেনা,
তোরা যুদ্ধ করে করবি কি তা বল?
মিথ্যে অস্ত্রশস্ত্র ধরে
প্রাণটা কেন যায় বেঘোরে?”
(O soldiers of the King of Halla,
Tell me, what will you achieve by war?
Taking the side of falsehood
Why do you want to give up your lives?)
This is all hallagulla, this has to stop, Ma’am. I can’t speak. So sorry.
