Democracy demands accountability, transparency and credibility from all its organs, and any act or omission by Lok Sabha not strictly according to Rules or in violation of rules is bound to be questioned by the nation.
When Lok Sabha does not strictly follow its ?Business Rules? why should the public follow Traffic Rules?
In democracy institution are permanent and incumbents, however high they might be, are temporary. Every constitutional organ of democracy requires reforms every decade. So are the electoral processes in Rajya Sabha, Lok Sabha and States of the Union, for ensuring a great future of this nation. Radically cleansed democracy is the only solution for growth and glory of this nation.
We wish India to emerge as role model among all 122 democracies out of 192 member nations of the world. Electoral reforms at all levels is a must at the earliest if democracy in India has to survive.
