This is the third week since the beginning of the monsoon session of Indian Parliament. However the Parliament is still not functioning. The opposition is maintaining a strong stand on the Pegasus issue. Meanwhile the government is firm on its stand.
Due to the constant uproar of the opposition, the operation of the house remained disrupted. However, in the meantime, regardless of the opposition’s position, the government has tabled and passed many important bills in minutes.
Without giving importance to the opinion of other parties and without any parliamentary discussion, the government is passing many important bills. With a mere formality, the bills are being passed. Interestingly, about two and a half lakh rupees are spent in running the Parliament per minute. Government is also wasting crores of people’s tax money everyday.

The government is making crucial amendments in the constitution and working of various institutions in the house. However, passing these bills in minutes without any debates and discussions is harmful for democracy. The government had also passed the farm bills in the parliament without the consent of the opposition. And now the government is doing the same mistake with other Bills.
Meanwhile, no discussion means the government is not taking the point of view of others in to consideration. Once the Indian Parliament passes a bill, it is a very long process to bring about any change to it. From a constitutional point of view also, it will have an impact on the future of crores of Indians.
