‘One nation, one legislative platform,’ Proposed by PM Modi

‘One nation, one legislative platform,’ Proposed by PM Modi

Giving the mantra “duty, duty, duty” for the next 25 years to all elected representatives, Prime Minister Modi on Wednesday called for a “one nation, one legislative platform” for all State Assemblies and Parliament to share resources while virtually addressing the 82nd All-India Presiding Officers’ Conference held at the Himachal Pradesh Assembly here.

Addressing the meet in its centennial year, Mr. Modi said the next 25 years were crucial for India as it completed 100 years of Independence in 2047. In this time, he said, “We can fulfil the mantra — duty, duty, duty.”

Mr. Modi called for a portal for all legislatures to give a technological boost and connect the democratic units. He also said first-time elected representatives should receive training on the right way to behave in the House.

The PM said the youth, women, and members representing aspirational districts should be given more time to speak in the House. He added there should take a day for “quality debate” and that elected representatives should share their experiences with the House.

Earlier, in the inaugural session, Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla said the decreasing number of meetings of legislatures and the declining discussion while making laws was a matter of concern.

He added that as India celebrates Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav, “There should be a collective resolve to prepare a model document to ensure that when 100 years of our Independence are completed, there should be equality in the rules and procedures of all legislatures and the working of the legislative bodies should be according to the hopes and aspirations of the people.”

Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairman Harivansh called for legislatures to be made future-ready. He said States were yet to repeal redundant laws at the same speed as the Centre, where about 1,500 laws had been abolished from 2014 to 2019.

The Himachal Pradesh Assembly Speaker noted that Shimla had hosted the conference seven times, including the first one in 1921. Historic resolutions such as the one supporting giving women the right to vote in 1925 were passing in the conference, he added.
