‘Live-in political relationship’ peculiarly a new phenomenon in Punjab politics
30.07.19 - Bir Devinder Singh*
‘Live-in political relationship’ peculiarly a new phenomenon in Punjab politics



If the Speaker of Punjab Legislative Assembly does not decide on the resignations of certain MLAs, who have either resigned or crossed over to other political parties; that entail disqualification under the 10th Schedule of the Indian Constitution, and yet the members in question decide to attend the ensuing assembly session, the entailing circumstances would lead to paradoxically strange situation and absurd spectacle in the House.
 
Such MLAs will have to share the same seating arrangement as it exists prior to their resignation or switching over to the parties, other than their mother party on whose ticket they have been elected to the House. It sounds outlandish if they illegitimately and unethically continue to be the members of their respected party and incongruously enjoy all the privileges, perks and benefits by virtue of being member of the party, which they have already betrayed or rejected; either by resigning voluntarily or conveniently crossing over to other parties under one pretext or the other.
 ------------
------------
The oddly new phenomenon could better be described as ‘live-in political relationship’ where you may enjoy flirting with other political parties, without severing your formal ties with your original party. The political drama of the absurd is being enacted unashamedly in Punjab for quite some time now, with the Speaker, contemptuously being an accomplice.
 
MLA HS Phoolka submitting his resignation to Speaker Rana KP Singh.
 
Political morality and parliamentary ethics does not seem to be relevant anymore in the Indian polity. The onus to decide the matter, already protracted beyond a point; lies squarely with the Hon’ble Speaker Rana KP Singh. The members in question can conveniently blame the Speaker, who by his own will, inexcusably engross in a frame of mind that has serious implications parliamentary governance.
 
The Speaker of the House is a key functionary in the system of Parliamentary democracy; therefore his role should not be seen imperfectly deficient in putting matters of huge public importance in an indeterminate state for imprecise period. As per the rule 51 (5) of the Rules of Procedure and conduct of Business of Punjab Vidhan Sabha the Hon’ble Speaker is bound under the statute, to inform the House with regards to the position resignation of the member of the House.

Punjab Governor accepts Sidhu’s resignation, CM to hold power portfolio for time being

Punjab Governor accepts Sidhu’s resignation, CM to hold power portfolio for time being



Chandigarh, July 20: Navjot Singh Sidhu is formally out of the Punjab Cabinet with both Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh and Governor VPS Badnore accepting his one-line resignation.

Within hours of the resignation letter being forwarded to him by the Chief Minister, the Governor conveyed his acceptance of the same.

The Power portfolio will, for the time being, remain with the Chief Minister, an official spokesperson disclosed.

Captain Amarinder, who had been indisposed for the last two days, since arrival from Delhi, saw the resignation letter this morning and sent the same to Badnore for formal acceptance.
The Chief Minister had earlier, in Delhi, said he would see the resignation letter, which was received at his Chandigarh residence in his absence, and take a decision. The letter, however, was just a single sentence tendering Sidhu’s resignation, with no explanation or elaboration, said the spokesperson.

Sidhu had reportedly sent his resignation on June 10 to Congress president Rahul Gandhi and tweeted the same more than a month later. Thereafter he had tweeted that he would formally send his papers to the Chief Minister, in whose cabinet he had been allocated the Power Ministry as part of a reshuffle post the Lok Sabha elections. He finally sent his resignation to Captain Amarinder’s official residence while the latter was in Delhi.

It may be recalled that Sidhu had refused to take over his new portfolio, which the Chief Minister himself has been monitoring during the ongoing crucial Paddy season, with a harsh summer sending the power demand in the state to unprecedented levels.

Taking note of the 25 feet breach in the Ghaggar river at Phulad village of Moonak, Sangrur Deputy Commissioner Sangrur Ghanshyam Thori and SSP Dr Sandeep Garg immediately reached the spot and reviewed the situation. DC assured the residents of villages that the Punjab government was fully committed to safeguarding the lives of the people living near Ghaggar and breach will soon be plugged.

He said that every situation related to possible floods was being monitored by Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh. DC Thori said that to deal with any critical situation, the district administration and police personnel along with the army personnel are keeping tab over every situation. Thori and SSP also surveyed the situation on the rough roads along Ghaggar while riding a motorcycle.

DC said although the water level in the Ghaggar river has decreased in the neighboring districts, still there is no slowdown in the vigilance of the district Sangrur and the villagers have also been appealed to be cautious about the rumors.

Deputy Commissioner revealed that in order to deal with the possible flood situation, all arrangements have been made to provide the relief material as required at the time of urgency like filled, empty bags of sands, ropes, nets etc. He said that as soon as the administration detected the breach the 7th battalion of the NDRF and the 80th Battalion of SDRF were immediately contacted and their teams have already reached the spot.

If Sidhu doesn’t want to do his job, there’s nothing I can do about it: Amarinder

If Sidhu doesn’t want to do his job, there’s nothing I can do about it: Amarinder



Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Monday said if Navjot Sidhu did not want to do his job, there was nothing he could do about it.

The minister should have accepted his new portfolio instead of shunning the work in the middle of the crucial Paddy season, said the Chief Minister, reiterating that Sidhu was given a job, which he should have accepted and done.

"If Sidhu doesn’t want to do the job, there is nothing I can do about it,” said Captain Amarinder, questioning how a soldier could refuse a job assigned by the General. There has to be some discipline in the government if it is to function effectively, added the Chief Minister.

Asked if Sidhu had made any attempt at reconciliation, the Chief Minister said there was no need for it. "I do not have any issues with him. If Sidhu has any issues with me, you’ll have to ask him about them,” he added, in response to a question.
 

The Chief Minister, however, said he did not see any harm in the minister sending his papers to the Congress president. The cabinet was decided in consultation with the Congress high command so it was ok for Sidhu to send his resignation to the party president, said the Chief Minister, in response to media queries. He was talking informally to reporters at Parliament House after a courtesy call on Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Captain Amarinder said he had called on the prime minister since he had not met him so far during the latter’s second term. However, he took the opportunity to discuss the 550th birth anniversary celebrations of Sri Guru Nanak Dev ji. The prime minister confirmed his participation in the mega event and assured of all possible help to make the programme a grand success, befitting the historic occasion, said the Chief Minister.

The legacy issue of the Rs 31000 crore food debt also came up for discussion and the prime minister said that he was seized of the matter, said Captain Amarinder.

On the issue of Sidhu’s resignation, the Chief Minister said he had been informed that the resignation was sent to his residence in Chandigarh but he was yet to see it. He would have to read it first to be able to comment on it, he added.

Pointing out that he had reshuffled the portfolios of 13 of the 17 ministers in his cabinet after the Lok Sabha elections, Captain Amarinder said Sidhu was the only member who had problems. The reshuffle was decided on the basis of the performance of the ministers, and Sidhu should have accepted his new department, he added

Sidhu was given the crucial Power portfolio, which was particularly important at this time in view of the Paddy season, from June to October. With many parts of Punjab not receiving adequate rainfall, the power situation was critical, requiring day to the day monitoring, said the Chief Minister, adding that he was himself doing this job now. 

The Chief Minister expressed his unhappiness with the statement issued by Sidhu and his wife regarding the latter’s candidature for the parliamentary elections. He clarified that he had never opposed Mrs. Navjot Sidhu’s candidature and had suggested she should contest from Bathinda, which the couple rejected. 

On a question about Rahul Gandhi, the Chief Minister said he would certainly be meeting him. Rahul continued to work for the party, which was not at a standstill, as being projected by the opposition and sections of the media. The work (in the Congress) is going on, with a whole team to lead, said Captain Amarinder.

EASE OF BUSINESS
CM Punjab gives power to DCs to clear investment projects up to 10 cr

CM Punjab gives power to DCs to clear investment projects up to 10 cr



Chandigarh, July 12: Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Friday issued directives to empower DCs to independently clear investment projects up to Rs 10 crore, thus taking another major step forward to boost ease of business with simplified online clearance process.

The Chief Minister was chairing a high-level meeting with the DCs to review various programmes and projects, and draw out a roadmap to plug gaps in execution to make the systems more people-friendly and, at the same time, more secure.

Issues ranging from prison safety to drugs, water management, education and the 550th celebration of the birth anniversary of Sri Guru Nanak Devi ji were discussed at the meeting. The Chief Minister expressed satisfaction at the investments facilitated so far in the state, with Rs 50,000 crore worth of projects already grounded.

The Chief Minister announced the government’s decision to give incentives to villages that turn drug-free and work concertedly towards providing treatment and rehabilitation to the addicts. Expressing concern over the acquittal rates in drugs cases, he called for tightening of the prosecution procedures to ensure that drug smugglers do not easily procure bail. He directed the district police to strictly enforce the law to control drug peddling and smuggling, pointing out that the STF alone could not handle the gigantic task.

On the matter of prison security, the Chief Minister said his government was contemplating getting security battalions from southern states, on the lines of Delhi’s Tihar Jail, to create a language barrier between the security personnel and the prisoners & their families. This, he stressed, would prevent the security personnel from getting close to the prisoners.

Captain Amarinder directed the DCs to undertake personal inspections on regular basis, and ensure the welfare of the inmates. Underlining the importance of prisoner welfare, he said jails were not slaughter houses where inmates could be kept and forgotten. It was important, he added, to find ways to keep them busy, including physical training.

Expressing grave concern over the critical water situation in the state, the Chief Minister asked the DCs to go all out to check water wastage and create awareness among the people in their respective districts. He directed them to prepare Water Conservation & Rainwater Harvesting Plans for their districts, with inter-departmental coordination to ensure seamless execution. He further asked them to regularly monitor cleaning of village ponds to store rain water, and also to take steps to promote less-water intensive crops and cropping techniques.

Reviewing the cleanliness drive initiated across the state by his government, Captain Amarinder announced launch of a garbage segregation scheme at the home level to ensure that wet and dry garbage is collected and disposed separately.

Taking stock of the arrangements under way for the 550th Prakash Purab celebrations, the Chief Minister asked the DCs to check the progress of the development works to ensure high level of quality, with community participation in the improvement and cleanliness of the villages linked with the life of the first Sikh Guru and earmarked for the celebrations. He emphasized the need to accelerate the plantation drive identified as an area of improvement and ordered strong focus on maximum plantation for the next 30 days. He underscored the need for plantation of trees in open areas and the roadside, as well as fruit trees in every house.

On the subject of education, Captain Amarinder congratulated the Education Secretary for improving results as well as school infrastructure in the state. He underlined the need for continued and concerted efforts to further strengthen the education system.

The Meeting was attended by Chief Secretary Karan Avtar Singh, ACS Housing and Urban Development Vini Mahajan, ACS Forest and Wildlife Roshan Sunkaria, ACS Health Satish Chandra, Financial Commissioner Revenue KBS Sidhu, Financial Commissioner Taxation MP Singh, Financial Commissioner Development Viswajeet Khanna, Principal Secretary to CM Tejveer Singh, Principal Secretary Local Government A Venu Prasad, DGP Dinkar Gupta, Secretary Employment Generation Rahul Tiwari, Secretary School Education Krishan Kumar and ADGP STF Gurpreet Deo.
