Bhopal: Now members will not be able to use words like Pappu, Feku, Buntadhar, thief, liar, fool in the Madhya Pradesh Legislative Assembly. A list of many such unparliamentary words is being prepared by the Assembly Secretariat. This list will be made available to the members before the monsoon session of the Legislative Assembly, which begins on August 9. They will be expected not to use them during the proceedings. A list of about 1500 unparliamentary words has been prepared by the Madhya Pradesh Vidhan Sabha. Mostly those words which have previously been omitted from the proceedings of the House. In Madhya Pradesh Vidhan Sabha, Principal Secretary Awadhesh Pratap Singh said that many times honorable members use such words in excitement, which is not in accordance with the dignity of the common citizen and the House. Such words are not spoken outside even in common parlance, so the words are sometimes removed from the proceedings. They have been compiled.
Welcome to the creation of a corpus of unparliamentary words
He said that the Speaker takes out the complete compilation of the session which has been held till March and deletes it as unparliamentary, which is at his discretion. With that in mind, a compilation has been made. This was the instruction of the Hon’ble Speaker. Overall, it is an effort that the MLAs should keep in mind the choice of words and the limitation of language while speaking in the assembly, both the parties have their own arguments on the imposition of a code of conduct for words in the assembly. Congress MLA and former minister Jitu Patwari said that Madhya Pradesh Vidhan Sabha has taken the initiative to remove those words which strangle social boundaries, it is welcome, I believe that people’s representatives have a family, they also give a message to the society. This step of the assembly is welcome, we should assimilate.
On the other hand, Cabinet Minister Arvind Bhadauria said that the history of Madhya Pradesh Legislative Assembly has been mutual dialogue and friendship. People sit in the biggest temple of democracy, so such words should be used which are pleasing to the public, we welcome it. In the meetings of the Legislative Assembly, the ruling party and the opposition use unparliamentary language during the allegations and counter allegations against each other. On this many times the Speaker of the Assembly, exercising his authority, has to exclude such words from the proceedings, but now it may not be needed.
