The wheel seems to have turned full circle in 2014 — with the AIADMK, But other Congress leaders have been taking up the cudgels with the government on the issue even at the cost of casting aspersions on the Speaker.Former parliamentary affairs minister Kamal Nath for one alleged that the presiding officer’s decision could be "flavoured" by the fact that she belonged to the ruling party His threat that the Congress could go to court was followed by a PIL filed by a supporter But the court declined to intervene in the matter which is essentially political and lies in the domain of the Speaker who on her part has been consulting legal experts on the issue Congress leaders have been crying themselves hoarse that there is no rule which says that a party cannot get the LoP status unless it has 10 percent of the total strength of the House They base their argument on the reasoning that the Salary and Allowances of Leaders of Opposition in Parliament 1977 section 2 defines the LoP as the leader in the House of the party in opposition to the government having the greatest numerical strength But it also adds a rider that the opposition party will have to be recognized as such by the presiding officer of the House But to bolster the claim the party also argued that as a pre-poll alliance the Congress led UPA has more than 55 MPs or 10 percent of the House The 10 percent benchmark was set up more than 60 years back vide a ruling given by first Speaker GV Mavalankar This was subsequently incorporated in Direction 121 (1) of the directions by the Speaker and the Rules of Procedure and Conduct of Business of the Lok Sabha (rule 389) According to rules while recognizing a parliamentary party or group the Speaker shall consider: a) an association of members who form a parliamentary party shall have announced at the time of the general elections a distinct ideology and programme of parliamentary work on which they have been returned to the House b) shall have an organisation both inside and outside the House c) shall have at least a strength equal to the quorum fixed to constitute a sitting of the House that is one tenth of the total number of members of the House A party which meets the first two conditions but not the third can be recognised as a parliamentary group provided it has at least 30 members Section 2 of the Leaders and Chief Whips of recognised parties and groups in Parliament (Facilities) Act 1988 stipulates that the party must have a minimum strength of 55 MPs in the Lok Sabha and 25 in the Rajya Sabha which is 10 percent of the House concerned A parliamentary group must have not less than 30 MPs in the Lok Sabha and not less than 15 MPs in the Upper House Also both the 1977 and the 1988 laws talk about a leader of the House of the party in opposition to the government and not of any pre or post election alliances By this account the Congress seems eligible to be recognised only as a parliamentary group since it has over 30 seats But this hasn’t stopped the party from pitching its claim for its leader in the House to be recognized as Leader of Opposition arguing that the main law does not stipulate this number and an official opposition is necessary for selecting heads of statutory bodies like the CVC NHRC or the Lokpal And for those who attack the Congress for not extending a similar facility after the passage of the law in 1977 either in 1980 or in 1984 the party contended that at that time the LoP was not required to be part of any such selection process There was no LoP throughout Jawaharlal Nehru’s tenure Lok Sabha got its first LoP in 1969 when Ram Subhag Singh held this position following the split in the Congress The post got statutory status with the 1977 law The big question is whether the absence of a LoP would impact key appointments as argued by the Congress Section 12(3) of the Right to Information Act 2005 and section 4 of the Central Vigilance Commission Act 2003 makes it clear that even if there is no recognized LoP the leader of the single largest opposition party can be part of the selection committee for the CIC and the CVC The situation is slightly different in the case of the NHRC and the Lokpal which does not allow for an exception in the absence of a LoP For instance section 4(2) of the Lokpal and the Lokayuktas Act 2013 states that "no appointment of a Chaiperson or a Member shall be invalid merely by reason of any vacancy in the Selection Committee" There is a similar provision in the NHRC Act In effect this means that the government can proceed with these appointments even in the absence of a LoP It is this which the Congress finds it difficult to stomach — that it has become irrelevant for the moment And even if BJP leaders have been saying that they cannot be blamed for the people not giving the Congress more than 44 seats Sonia Gandhi’s party can now only hope that the Speaker shows some magnanimity Talwar Amritsar Damascus riddles THIS refers to the article ?
