1 crore/hr fine for stalling Parliamentary proceedings:Bajaj

Written by: Staff

Nagpur, Nov 21 (UNI) Leading industrialist and Rajya Sabha member Rahul Bajaj will to table a private member's bill proposing a fine of Rupees 1 crore per hour to be imposed on any political party that forces an adjournment in parliamentary proceedings.

He was speaking after being accorded a civic felicitation on being elected to the Upper House, at Wardha, where his family has its roots. Mr Bajaj stressed that Parliament functions on the country's tax-payers money.

He also expressed concern yesterday evening over the large number of suicides by farmers in the Vidarbha region of Maharashtra.

Mr Bajaj said he would spend a major part of his MPLADS (Member of Parliament Local Area Development Scheme) funds amounting to Rupees 2 crore per annum to implement irrigation schemes in Wardha district since irrigation appeared to be a major problem for agriculture in the region.

He said he agreed to be a Rajya Sabha member because he felt that the voice of the industry must be heard in the law-making process, since every industrialist was affected by the law of the land. This was all the more important in the present era of globalisation, wherein the Indian industry had to compete in the international arena, he pointed out.
