    72 RS members retires- PM appeals come back again. And what they can do ?

    Most of the RS members are selected by the electoral college and thus those who become the member serves for the term and their contributions in the house is minimal or even decimal. 72 members of various partie are retiring from Rajya Sabha and the PM Modi made an appeal that their services are needed again and they should come back. Do we have dearth for leaders in many parties? Why the same leaders be insisted to be get elected again? Members please share your views and suggestions in this regard.

    The Rajya Sabha is a permanent body and unlike Lok Sabha, it will never be completely dissolved. Every alternative year 1/3rd of the members of the sabha will retire and new members will be elected by the electoral college as mentioned by the author. Every member will serve as a member there for 6 years. Some members will be nominated by the President of India based on the recommendations of his/her cabinet. The vice president of India will be the ex-officio Chairman of the Rajya Sabha.
    What I feel is the remarks made by the PM on the eve of the retirement of 72 MPs are for the sake of courtesy and not that he really wants them only back again. He is not the person to decide who will come back. He may have a say in his own party but not in other parties. When some relatives come and leave while leaving we say please come again. This is courtesy. The same may be the case with the PM's remarks also.

    In place of the retiring members new members would be elected or nominated. After a gap the old members can again come back to the Rajya Sabha. But it is always better to give chance to other new people also. We have a large number of capable people who can always be inducted in Rajya Sabha. What Mr Modi mentioned was just an applaud for their past services with an indication that later after a gap they can again come back to the house. Rajya Sabha is a place where not only the politicians but also the distinguished people from society are also inducted. It is mixed lot of celebrity people from all areas and is a sign of honour also.
    Knowledge is power.
