Dear Editor,Recently skirmishes between the Shiromani Akali Dal Party and BJP Party , resulting in the resignation of a Union Cabinet Minister, Harsimrat Kaur exposed the whimsical approach of the ruling party in promulgating ordinances. According to the Minister who tendered resignation, no serious discussions took place on the three ordinances promulgated in a Cabinet meeting. The subject was not referred to the Select Committee also, though Kaur repeatedly brought the serious developments in her state to the PM. One fails to understand the reason of the hurry in which the ordinances displacing the time-tested Mandi system were drafted. Out of the 23 Bills taken up during the monsoon session, eleven bills pertain to ordinances promulgated recently. Ordinances are supposed to be brought in cases of emergency, in situations warranting immediate action. The SC had once termed them as ‘constitutional frauds’. The Centre must avoid the ordinance route.Neha Jamal,Punjab.
