      "My opinion on the ordinance is that it is complete nonsense and that it should be torn up and thrown out", said Rahul Gandhi today on UPA Govt's proposed controversial ordinance for protecting convicted MLAs and MPs.

      Background:
      On July 10, the Supreme Court ruled that an MP or MLA would be immediately disqualified if convicted by a court in a criminal offence with a jail term of two years or more. The court struck down Section 8 (4) of the Representation of the People Act, 1951, which protects convicted legislators from disqualification if they appeal before a higher court within three months.

      The UPA govt's proposed ordinance is to undo that decision of the apex court. After the Union Cabinet cleared the ordinance on Tuesday, the BJP and the Left parties have attacked it as "unconstitutional and immoral". Many civil society members and organisations also opposed the ordinance. Yesterday a high-level BJP delegation led by L K Advani met the President and urged him to return it to the government for reconsideration.

      Government and Congress spokespersons have so far been speaking in support of the ordinance. But soon after Rahul Gandhi spoke, Ajay Maken, Congress General Secretary said "What Rahul Gandhi has said is our party policy".

      President sought explanation:
      President Sri Pranab Mukherjee who was forwarded the ordinance by the Cabinet, sought clarification from home minister Sushil Kumar Shinde, parliamentary minister Kamal Nath and law minister Kapil Sibal. He is understood to have asked the ministers what was the urgency to bring an ordinance when there was a bill already pending before Parliament on the issue.

      Some points to ponder:
      1) If ordinance is 'non-sense', do the PM, Cabinet and Congress party make any sense?

      2) Why did Rahul Gandhi remain silent all these days? Where was his voice when Cabinet cleared Bill, and then Ordinance?

      3) Why is Rahul Gandhi not there in Cabinet to avoid contradictions between personal and public opinions and to avoid opportunistic stand on contentious issues?

      4) Is it right on Rahul Gandhi's part to hit PM Dr. Manmohan Singh when he is outside the country? Is it right to embarrass own party's prime minister and government or would it have been more graceful to admit we have made a mistake and willing to correct?

      5) Can there be any disciplinary action against those party-men in government responsible for this embarrassment? Some are suggesting that MMS should resign as soon as he returns to India. Former PM media advisor Sanjay Baru said on CNN-IBN that Rahul has committed insubordination and damaged MMS credibility and that PM should resign. But if MMS is that soft of a man with uncompromising self respect wouldn't he have been a former PM long ago?

      6) Can PM Dr. Manmohan Singh publicly reveal that what he did was only implementing the political decision by the party?

      7) Can Rahul Gandhi be expected to be forthright on other issues as well? What would be the effect on the party and government in such a scenario?

      One thing seems very certain. This proposed ordinance will have to be withdrawn by the government now. That may be a good news for positive reformation of electoral politics.

            "My opinion on the ordinance is that it is
            complete
            nonsense and that it should be torn up and thrown out",
            said Rahul Gandhi today
            on UPA Govt's proposed controversial ordinance for
            protecting convicted MLAs and
            MPs.

            Background:
            On July 10, the Supreme Court ruled that an MP or MLA
            would be
            immediately disqualified if convicted by a court in a
            criminal offence with a
            jail term of two years or more. The court struck down
            Section 8 (4) of the
            Representation of the People Act, 1951, which protects
            convicted legislators
            from disqualification if they appeal before a higher court
            within three months.


            The UPA govt's proposed ordinance is to undo that
            decision of the apex
            court. After the Union Cabinet cleared the ordinance on
            Tuesday, the BJP and the
            Left parties have attacked it as "unconstitutional and
            immoral". Many civil
            society members and organisations also opposed the
            ordinance. Yesterday a
            high-level BJP delegation led by L K Advani met the
            President and urged him to
            return it to the government for reconsideration.

            Government and Congress
            spokespersons have so far been speaking in support of the
            ordinance. But soon
            after Rahul Gandhi spoke, Ajay Maken, Congress General
            Secretary said "What
            Rahul Gandhi has said is our party policy".

            President sought
            explanation:
            President Sri Pranab Mukherjee who was forwarded
            the ordinance by the Cabinet, sought clarification from home
            minister Sushil
            Kumar Shinde, parliamentary minister Kamal Nath and law
            minister Kapil Sibal. He
            is understood to have asked the ministers what was the
            urgency to bring an
            ordinance when there was a bill already pending before
            Parliament on the
            issue.

            Some points to ponder:
            1) If ordinance
            is 'non-sense', do the PM, Cabinet and Congress
            party make any sense?

            2)
            Why did Rahul Gandhi remain silent all these days? Where was
            his voice when
            Cabinet cleared Bill, and then Ordinance?

            3) Why is Rahul Gandhi not
            there in Cabinet to avoid contradictions between personal
            and public opinions
            and to avoid opportunistic stand on contentious issues?

            4) Is it right on
            Rahul Gandhi's part to hit PM Dr. Manmohan Singh when he
            is outside the country?
            Is it right to embarrass own party's prime minister and
            government or would it
            have been more graceful to admit we have made a mistake and
            willing to
            correct?

            5) Can there be any disciplinary action against those
            party-men
            in government responsible for this embarrassment? Some are
            suggesting that MMS
            should resign as soon as he returns to India. Former PM
            media advisor Sanjay
            Baru said on CNN-IBN that Rahul has committed
            insubordination and damaged MMS
            credibility and that PM should resign. But if MMS is that
            soft of a man with
            uncompromising self respect wouldn't he have been a
            former PM long
            ago?

            6) Can PM Dr. Manmohan Singh publicly reveal that what he
            did was
            only implementing the political decision by the party?

            7) Can Rahul
            Gandhi be expected to be forthright on other issues as well?
            What would be the
            effect on the party and government in such a scenario?

            One thing
            seems very certain. This proposed ordinance will have to be
            withdrawn by the
            government now. That may be a good news for positive
            reformation of electoral
            politics.
