Kapil Sibal Press Conference

New Delhi, March 25 : Days after the Kamal Nath government in Madhya Pradesh collapsed due to the mass resignation by 22 Congress MLAs and Shivraj Singh Chouhan was sworn in as the BJP chief minister, former Union Minister Kapil Sibal said ‘virus’ has inflicted the political system, as India went into lockdown.

Earlier too, Sibal had launched his debate in the Rajya Sabhaon delhi riots calling it a “communal virus attack”. Speaking to IANS he said that “10th schedule is not able to protect defection as the BJP has taken other route by way of resignation”.

He said “no dissident in any party will resign unless there is a benefit clause attached to it,even the floor test has become a “farce” as we are witnessing constitutional anarchy”, said Sibal.

“The tenth schedule was to protect ‘Aya Ram and Gaya Ram politic’. It prevents members of Parliament and assemblies from cross voting and defying the whip or resign. It invites disqualification of a member who voluntarily gives up membership of the political party to which he or she belongs or votes against the whip issued by the party in the course of proceedings in Parliament or the legislature.Sibal said

In the 10 schedule when two third of the MLAs merge along with the floor leader then it’s allowed otherwise it invites defection laws and subsequently disqualification. But this is difficult to implement in large assemblies. In small states like Goa, it has happened.

Kapil Sibal alleged that BJP is engineering defection by resignation where MLAs are lured and kept in captivity and moved in chartered flights operating even from high security zones.

In case of Madhya Pradesh MLAs, the quitting lot was lodged in Bengaluru and no congress leaders were allowed to meet them.

The party leader alleged that in Karnataka the coalition government was destabilised by the resignation method and the beneficiary was the BJP.

He cited Uttrakhand, where the government was dislodged by this method and MLAs were whisked away to Delhi but timely intervention but the High Court saved the government.

Raising the issue of testing and equipping the frontline health workers with the personal protective equipment (PPE), the Congress leader advised the Prime Minister to take into consideration letters written by Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi.

Azad said proper attention be paid to around 45 crore labourers in the country and added, MNREGA should have been used for harvesting of rabi crop to help farmers as well as workers benefit from the government schemes.

The Congress leader also advocated raising credit limit for farmers and waiver of farm loans.

Meanwhile, the government is exploring ways to keep farmers and farming activities, like harvesting of ready crops and procurement of grain, outside the lockdown purview, amid the demands for extension of the shutdown.

Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar is expected to discuss during the day the issue with farm ministers of states through video link.

Then he went on to add, “Maybe it is someone’s goodwill, yet I insist that if you really have so much love and want to honour Modi, then take the responsibility of a poor family, at least as long as the corona virus crisis is there. There can be no greater honour for me than this.”

This is not the first time he urged people to help the needy and deprived in this hour of crisis. India is amid a 21-day shutdown to contain the spread of Coronavirus.
