Good leaders should lead by example and show the right way
to their disciples, and when the leaders are elected by democracy, for the country,
their responsibility is manifold. However the present scene at the Parliament
speaks contrary and demeans the whole purpose of democracy. Appalled at the way
the ruling party and opposition are handling issues in the Parliament, Union
HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar said that, people choose a government after five
years and in a democracy, people’s mandate is above all. And in this way if the
parliament does not work, this is undemocratic and an insult to the mandate.
He was apprehensive over Kendriya Vidyalaya students
visiting parliament and expressed his concern on the image the students of the
country will take back home from the visit. He was of the opinion that the
opposition is hindering the functioning of the elected Parliament which is
unhealthy and would have a negative impact on the students. He echoed his
concern at an event marking the foundation day of Kendriya Vidyalaya schools .He
wondered what he would show the school children from Kendriya Vidyalayas who
will come to watch the proceedings. The kind of ruckus going on in the
Parliament would set a wrong example in front of the kids. He was also worried
that the children would come having learnt discipline but would go back imbibing
Mr. Javadekar is hopeful that these kinds of exposure and
opinion of general public will put the people in Parliament under Self pressure
to conduct themselves better and resolve issues with healthy debates.
He also announced about the National Conference to be held
in March where budding innovators and interesting experiments will be
felicitated and best practices shared.
