JUSTIFIED ACTION

NO one else but the unruly six Congress MPs themselves should be blamed for inviting suspension by Lok Sabha Speaker Mrs. Sumitra Mahajan against them. Through their highly unacceptable behavior of storming into the well and throwing papers at the Speaker, these MPs have insulted the chair and trampled the ethics of the Parliament. Unfortunately, the whole ugly drama was unfolded before the eyes of Congress President Mrs. Sonia Gandhi, who was a moot spectator to the rowdy scenes created by her party members. Incidentally, the ugly scenes were enacted just a day after the outgoing President Mr. Pranab Mukherjee, in his farewell address, urged the elected members to ensure proper functioning of the Lok Sabha. The behaviour of the suspended MPs was unwarranted as the Chair had already agreed to hold a discussion on the issue of alleged atrocities against Dalits. Tax payers’ money is wasted whenever the Parliament fails to transact any business. The Speaker was quite justified in suspending the six unruly MPs.

CRACKDOWN

THE National Investigation Agency (NIA) has taken a long over due action against hardcore separatist-terrorists from Kashmir valley. Within the country, these were sources which kept on the cauldron of separatism boiling all the while for the last many years. The NIA has arrested key figures who were instrumental in keeping the Pakistani agenda of causing thousand cuts to India alive and funding these activities through hawala route and managing funds coming from Pakistan. Though their arrests may not necessarily see the end of violence in the valley immediately, however, their incarceration will deal a big blow to separatist elements. Their arrests also exposes their anti-national, treasonous and treacherous agenda. At the calling of Pakistan they have been stoking and keeping fires of unrest raging for several years now. Hence it was necessary for the security agencies to strike at the roots. Most of the seven arrested are related to top leaders of separatist organisation, Hurriyat Conference. This has exposed the true face of Hurriyat Conference.
