There is no choice for a single post Rajya Sabha has never generated more heat than the one that ended after midnight yesterday. People were glued to the TV all day.
Social media was abominable with speculation. What made this choice special? Is the hype of the media by TV channels competed for TRP, or problems that were very serious and unprecedented?
It was, in effect, interesting questions about the scourge of the horse trade operation of the law against desertion, the power and role of the EC, the acronym of the secret ballot and two dubious votes whose secrecy was violated.
The first commercial horse issue began with large-scale defections from Congress. Six members of Congress have joined the BJP, seven defects later and one cross vote.
When the game began desertion, Congress transferred the remaining 44 members of Congress-led Bangalore security, where they camped at a luxury resort.
The unfortunate practice of taking parliamentarians in secret places, often against their wishes, almost three decades. Remember Aaya Ram Ram Gaya? With the power of rampant money, it is almost impossible to avoid desertions.
The purchase of our legislators is known and popularized the term “horse trade”. We have seen it untied all over the country.
The figures mentioned are obscure, bred in tens of millions – perhaps tens of millions of rupees. The ensuing debate over parliamentary holidays was interesting, where they heard the poachers accusing the party was trying to save their flock:
The proverbial boat calling the black teapot. The fact that none of the tourists has denied demonstrates the effectiveness of this step. The second problem was the applicability of the law against desertion.
The law worked on this case when the six parliamentarians who challenged BJP were excluded and disqualified from voting.
However, the seven people who have passed by could not be disqualified because the law against desertion works only when the whip is violated in the context of a legislative procedure; An election is not part of this process.
Note that desertions become endemic when the term of the House ends, and outgoing lawmakers have nothing to lose.
They soon discover some forgotten “principles” or “choking on the leadership style” of the other party.
Another issue that was raised was the note, which has been in operation since January 2014, but was soon discovered by Congress, which protested against itself alleging mal-intent faith against the EC.
They approached the issue to the Supreme Court they refused reason to suspend the operation and asked them why they had not raised for three and a half years. The SC, however, decide on the applicability of the note in the particular case of the Rajya Sabha elections.
His refusal to stay was rooted in the fact that article 329 specifically prohibits judicial interference in the electoral process that was launched. The EC has invoked this article.
