Are we really working within the spirit of democracy?Though the national media which spent hours for telecasting the episode of 21 debarred AAP MLAs by the Election Commission of India and their disqualification due to their holding of the positions of office of Profit, the ruling by the Delhi High Court cancelling the EC orders and reinstating them as MLAs could not get much attention.
In another episode, the Legislative Assembly of Telangana was in chaos the state Governor was addressing the joint session of the state Assembly and Council and the Chairman of the State Legislative Council got injured due to throwing off the mike by an MLA. Within hours, the two MLAs responsible for the incident were dismissed from the assembly and recommended for fresh elections. Now the High Court of Telangana has cancelled the order stating that the individuals were not sought any explanation and not given fair chance to plead their case in the floor of the assembly. These to get reinstated.
But why so much hurry in such actions requiring interventions of the court? Why are the people at the helm of affairs not free from biased decisions? Are we really working within the spirit of democracy?
