President Mukherjee anguished over parliamentary paralysis

  • President Pranab Mukherjee said the House is not a place for dharna and disruption which amounts to “gagging of majority” by the minority.
  • He said that parliamentarians are meant to discuss and transact business and not disrupt.
  • President noted that Parliament is in session for only a few weeks in a year.
  • Even if a member is levelling an allegation against someone, no court can prosecute him because he has said so on the floor of the House.
