The Parliament fails to act – Again.
2013 December 18
Losing what was probably India’s last chance in many years to relieve pain and suffering among India’s millions, the Parliament adjourned sine die today amidst political turmoil, failing to take up amendment of India’s Narcotics Act. It is very unlikely that there will be another session of the Parliament during the term of the current Government and pending bills will become null and void.
To the person who responded to this saying, “they don’t care”, let us voice a dissent. It is not “they”. It is “us”. We live in a democracy. We are responsible for what our elected representatives do. If they failed to act, it is because we were not able to raise our voices loud enough to demand justice on behalf of those who are voiceless. Will we be able to do better in future?
