Bangalore, Apr 4 (UNI) Leader of the Opposition in the Karnataka Legislative Council H K Patil today moved a resolution, seeking creation of Upper House with a constitutional binding in all the States and repeal of Article 169 of the Constitution relating to abolition or creation of Councils.

Moving the resolution in the Council, Mr Patil sought suitable amendment to Article 169 so that the Upper House continued to exist without any threat of closure and help the Lower House in discharging its role and responsibilites.

It was desirable to make a provision similar to Article 80 of the Constitution, which provided for the composition of the Council of States in Parliament, so that there would be a permanent Upper House in every State. Upper House in States should be treated similar to the Council of States, he said.

Mr Patil said States which have abolished Councils have realised the importance of Upper House and several States were making efforts to constitute one to prevent hurried legislation.

Recently, both the Houses of Parliament have passed a legislation for the revival of the Andhra Pradesh Legislative Council and the same was awaiting Presidential assent, he pointed out, adding that the Legislative Councils of West Bengal, Punjab and Tamil Nadu were abolished under Article 169.

The resolution was seconded by Dr M P Nadagouda (JD-U), Mr Shashil Namoshi (BJP) and Mr K T Shrikanthegowda (JD-S).
