When the supremacy of our parliamentarians comes into question, political parties are quick to bury all differences and speak in one voice. We have seen MPs unite to champion their cause both within and outside the Parliament. This was evident once again when a cornered UPA-II played a masterstroke by invoking the 'prestige of Parliament' to reject the basic demand of Team Anna - to table the Jan Lokpal Bill in the House. Is it right for our honourable MPs to have one set of standards for themselves and another for the common man?
The politicians who have been elected as the representatives of the common people have forgotten that they are there in the parliament to serve the electorate and not serve their selfish interest.No body is questioning the supremacy of parliament but the people of the country are demanding for the justice that has been denied hitherto by the elected representative government, so it is the responsibility of the government to act positively and fulfil the demand put forth by the common people in the form of Jan Lokpal.If the elected representatives have any doubt about the common consensus of the electorate in this regard I wish they resign and go to people once again to affirm/confirm whether the people are for Jan Lokpal Bill and corruption free governance at levels proposed by Anna's team or not,instead of fixing themselves to the chairs that were got by.....means to cheat the people.
