Ranchi: Reviewing the work done during the last 16 years on the 16th Establishment Day of Jharkhand Assembly, Governor Draupadi Murmu today said that members of the house should maintain dignity of the House.
She said the Opposition should put forth their creative point of view and the ruling party should think a hundred times before tabling a matter in the house. She further said that people are aware and they know what is being done inside and outside the Assembly. The House should make laws as per the need of the people and implement them with transparency, she said.
The Governor said that new MLAs and senior MLAs and MLAs showing overall performance should be felicitated the same way as the ex-MLAs have been honored.
Also present on the occasion, Chief Minister Raghubar Das said that the Legislative Assembly is most prominent body in democracy. The ruling party and the Opposition should work hand in hand to sort out people’s problems. They should discuss the drawbacks and faults but in no case the work of the House should be jeopardized. It harms the dignity of the House.
The CM said that people’s views on any topic should be heard carefully and despite disagreement the House should not be jeopardized. The mandate of the people should be respected. The members should make a progressive decision. The people should also see how their MLA is doing in the Assembly and judge them on the basis of their support and opposition of a Bill.
“The motto of the government is open to all. We are committed for the development of the people of the state and ready to look into our actions and discuss all concerns related with the people. Required amendments will be done. Everyone should give priority to the people’s interest,” said the CM.
Das said that his government is the voice of the poor, marginalized, tribals, deprived and exploited people. Removing poverty is the government’s only agenda, he said.
Jharkhand Speaker Dinesh Oraon said that the problems of the people should be sorted out in the House seriously and given priority over other issues.
Prior to this the family members of martyr Shakti Singh, Nayaman Kujur, Francis Horo, Zawra Munda and Joseph Languri were felicitated with appreciation letter, cheque of Rs. 21,000, memento and ang-vastr.
