“Approach The Speaker,” Says SC Refusing To Issue Directions To MPs To Attend Sessions Of The Patrliament

The Supreme Court today (January 17, 2020) declined to interfere with a petition regarding the issue of MPs not attending Parliament. 

“Approach the speaker,” said the full bench of the Apex Court headed by the Chief Justice of India, SA Bobde which also included Justices BR Gavai and Surya Kant. The bench further granted liberty to the petitioner to withdraw and make representations before the Speaker of the Lok Sabha.

The Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi had earlier in the matter expressed disappointment over the fact that his party members haven’t been attending either houses of the Parliament. Apart from him, Rajya Sabha Chairman and Vice-President Venkaiah Naidu has also expressed displeasure in the past over the issue of absence of MPs from Parliament.
