Mangaluru: The citizens of the city submitted a memorandum to the Deputy Commissioner A B Ibrahim at the DC’s Office here, on December 14.
A silent march was held from the Clock Tower to the DC’s office to protest against the recent disruptions of the Parliament after which the memorandum was submitted to the DC urging him to uphold democratic values by demanding for the functioning of the Parliament for the nation’s growth.
Speaking to the mediapersons, Vikram Nayak, an executive member of Citizen Council Mangalore Chapter, said, “The parliament has been disrupted due to the misdeeds of one family. Due to the disruption, a lot of tax-payers’ money is going to the drain.”
“We have spread awareness among the people through social networking platforms. The stoppage of parliamentary proceedings is a great loss for the country. The Indian Parliament is convened to take up important works of the nation and stoppage of parliamentary work adversely affects national interests. The winter session of the parliament is a session of great importance for the country,” he added.
However, the manner in which the Congress and opposition parties have created obstacles and difficulties in functioning of parliament shows least regard for national interests.
