BJP govt reduced Parliament to notice board, rubber stamp,says Shashi Tharoor

JAIPUR:Congress MP Shashi Tharoor slammed BJP government at the centre over the autocratic steps taking to an undeclared emergency

He alleged that the BJP government has reduced Parliament to a "notice board and a rubber stamp".He said this at the Jaipur Literature Festival on Friday.
 
Tharur said during a session titled "Sustaining Democracy; Nurturing Democracy", that the government is taking a lot of autocratic steps without ever having to declare an emergency,adding, "You can call this an undeclared emergency." 
 
 
 He alleged that they are doing it under the ambit of the law and Constitution. “Look at something like the tightening of the UAPA which has resulted in people getting thrown into jail without charge and bail in some cases for two years like the instance of Siddique Kappan," Tharoor said.
 
Kerala-based journalist Siddique Kappan was arrested in October 2020 while on his way to Hathras in Uttar Pradesh where a Dalit woman had died after allegedly being raped. He and three others were accused of having links with the now-banned Popular Front of India.
 
Tharoor giving example of then prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru, said,”We had a parliament in which even ruling party members could challenge their prime minister, the minister of finance was forced to resign over a scandal exposed by backbenchers and we saw the prime minister held accountable to Parliament even during the 1962 China war."
