Conduct of legislative business should be meaningful: Kerala governor

Thiruvananthapuram, Jan 26 (IANS) Kerala Governor P. Sathasivam on Tuesday said the conduct of legislative business should be in a meaningful manner.

The statement came a day after President Pranab Mukherjee, on the eve of Republic Day, advocated strict adherence to debate, dissent and decision-making in parliament.

Sathasivam was speaking after witnessing an impressive parade held at the Central Stadium here on the occasion of the 67th Republic Day.

“I emphasise that the conduct of the legislative business should be carried out in a meaningful manner, justifying the expectations of the common man and keeping the healthy trends of a democratic polity, graduating to maturity,” said Governor Sathasivam, a former chief justice of the country.

Observing that India was a pluralistic society that was at once multi-lingual, multi-religious and multi-cultural, he said: “It is, therefore, imperative that we should attain inclusive growth, maintain communal harmony and sustain human dignity.”

“We should also ensure transparency and accountability in governance at all levels,” he said.

The governor also appreciated the efforts of the Oommen Chandy government in making dream projects a reality with the work commencing on the long-cherished Vizhinjam Seaport Project and other major events like the successful conduct of the 35th National Games.
