'திரும்ப அழைத்தல்' பற்றி சோம்நாத் சாட்டர்ஜி

இரு தினங்களுக்கு முன் நான் எழுதிய கட்டுரை.

மக்களவைத் தலைவர் சோம்நாத் சாட்டர்ஜி நேற்று பெங்களூரில் இதை வலியுறுத்திப் பேசியுள்ளார். அதிலிருந்து சில மேற்கோள்கள்:
The people's right to recall a representative who fails to live up to their expectations is an important democratic tool, and "I have been a strong votary of it," Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee said here on Sunday.

"Parliament is still the noblest of institutions, and every one there is not undesirable. But there is a need for a mechanism such as the right to recall, to help infuse a sense of accountability among elected representatives and I have also argued in favour of it," Mr. Chatterjee said.

In Parliament, every one is condemning this "abominable behaviour and I have forbidden him (Mr. Katara) from entering the House until he is cleared of all allegations." Right now, it is difficult to expel him as in the case of MPs who were involved in the cash-for-query incident, Mr. Chatterjee said.
எவ்வளவு விரைவில் முடியுமோ அவ்வளவு விரைவில் 'திரும்ப அழைக்கும்' சட்டத்தை இயற்ற நாம் முயற்சி செய்யவேண்டும்.


  1. Gujarat government has implemented such law recently that will enable the electorate to recall elected representatives across all local self-government bodies — municipal corporations, municipalities and panchayats

  2. Also, If RTI can be used prudently, the right to recall would come under RTI itself. for ex, if after sevaral rti queries, it becomes evident that, the elected person is in effective, it would be obviuos for him before the world to resign or dismissed, from party,etc,
