Rise above politics to discuss Juvenile Justice Bill: Trinamool
Trinamool Congress successfully raised the issue of long-pending Juvenile Justice Bill through a Notice for Suspension of Rules under Rule 267 in Rajya Sabha today.
Leader of the party in Rajya Sabha, Derek O’Brien said that it is incumbent upon the House to rise above politics and reflect on what is going on outside. “The House cannot remain insulated. The House must reflect the will of the people,” he said.
“Instead of debate and discussion, we are wasting time in agitation. The Govt has listed several other bills (Commercial Courts, Arbitration) – all corporate in nature. All Bills are important but this Bill is more important,” he added.
“We have only three days to go. The country is watching us. Juvenile Justice Bill must be put on the agenda,” Derek said.
Trinamool Congress wants that the Bill Bill should be discussed thread bare over next three days and passed with necessary amendments.
