Om Birla inaugurates 7th Conference of CPA India Region in Lucknow

Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla today said that the belief in the democracy has increased today and so is the responsibility of the representatives.

He was speaking after inaugurating the 7th Conference of Commonwealth Parliamentary Association India Region in the legislative assembly building in Lucknow today. He said that the rights of the presiding officers need to be curtailed so that these institutions become more democratic.

He said that recently during a meeting of presiding officers in Dehradun he had raised this issue and questioned about the rights of presiding officers especially in reference to anti-defection law. 

The Speaker added that whatever budget is available that should reach to the last man of society. 

In his keynote address, Governor of Madhya Pradesh Lalji Tondon said that Country is heading in a new direction and while criticism is always healthy but there should be no attempts to stop that. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that the discussions in the conference will strengthen the democratic system.

AIR Lucknow correspondent reports that Deputy Chairperson of Rajya Sabha, Harivansh and Union Minister of Minority Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi will deliver the Keynote Address during the Plenary Sessions which will be held today and tomorrow.
