New Delhi: The Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) has expressed deep anguish over the adamant stand of the Speaker not to discuss in Lok Sabha on the recent gruesome violence in Delhi before Holi. The Speaker has suspended seven members from the Congress party for demanding an immediate discussion on the issue in which 53 people were killed and over three hundred injured and properties worth crores of rupees destroyed.
SDPI National President M.K. Faizy said that it is absurd that while the government is not even willing to make a statement about the planned violence and vandalism in the capital city which had killed 53 people, while it is big mouthed about the Corona virus, fortunately there is no death reported in India.
Faizy asserted since Prime Minister Narendra Modi has already declared that he would not celebrate Holi to stand with the victims of Corona virus elsewhere, the Speaker is obliged to let the people know the logic of post-Holi discussion about a more hazardous massacre that led to the death of scores of Indians under his nose. It is ridiculous that the Lok Sabha Speaker instead of directing the treasury benches to start the debate over the violence forthwith has suspended seven members of the Congress party from the House for the rest of the session of Parliament to ward off trouble in conducting the House.
While many countries, including the United Nations and the United Kingdom and even the United Nations have expressed their concern about the situation in Delhi, both Prime Minister Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah are mum about the violence and are keeping away from the Parliament. He pointed out that the BJP hate speech makers who triggered the violence are sitting scot-free in the Parliament indicates the complicity of the ruling party in the violence. Democracy in the country is breathing its last. Thanks to Modi-Shah combine, the CBI and all other institutions are kowtowing to the tyrannical rulers, he added.
It seems that the government is planning something new to divert the attention of the people, and it needs some time to manufacture falsities or to orchestrate “terrorist" attacks somewhere, said Faizy. (The writer is a senior journalist and the views expressed are his own)
