He maintained that the CAG report on coal block allocation should have been discussed in Parliament and Public Accounts Committee but the Opposition chose to cause disruptions.
"We have just ended a wasted session of Parliament. Both the Houses were paralysed because CAG has issued a report which rightly or wrongly has certain allegations about public functionaries," Singh told reporters outside Parliament shortly after the end of Monsoon Session.
"We have great respect for the institution of CAG, but if we do respect this institution, we must be willing to debate its finding in PAC or even on the floor of Parliament which we have always been willing," he said.
Without naming BJP, Singh said, "The Opposition chose not to take advantage of the subtle institutional practices dealing with the reports of CAG and insisted on disrupting Parliament. This is negation of democracy."
He warned that "If this thought process is allowed to gain momentum it will be a grave violation of Parliamentary politics as we have understood."
Parliament could work only on six out of 19 days of sittings because of BJP's unrelenting demands for resignation of the Prime Minister over the coal block allocation issue besides cancellation of allotments and setting up of independent inquiry.
The Prime Minister said a paralysed Parliament was a "total negation" of the functioning democracy that India is and appealed to the countrymen to stand up unitedly to allow functioning of such democratic institutions.
"I would like my countrymen and countrywomen to make up their mind if this is the right way to serve our functioning democracy. We take pride in the fact that since Independence, we have been a practising and functioning democracy," he said.
"What we have witnessed in this session is a total negation of that and all right thinking people in our country should stand up and unitedly come up in (one) voice that come what may, Parliamentary institutions must be allowed to function with the norms as we have known them since Independence," Singh said.
He said Parliament was not allowed to discuss important issues facing the country like problems of rising communal tensions, regional and ethnic tension, terrorism, and naxalism.
"Parliament should have debated these issues. Parliament was not allowed to discuss these important issues before the country," he said.
Singh said the government was trying to prevent India getting affected by difficulties like recession faced by the global economy.
"Parliament should have discussed these issues. What is our economic strategy to deal with these global developments, Parliament was not allowed to do any of these things," he said.
"The result is Parliament -- a forum where we articulate our peoples' felt needs and felt urges -- was totally paralysed," Singh said.
The unearth of scam by C.A.G. in regard to the Coal Block Allotment had put the opposition on the Drivers Seat and the Ruling Party in defensive . the opposition parties boycotted the Parliament and halted the proceeding of the Parliament demanding the exit of Prime Minister S Manmohan Singh as he should submit resignation owing the moral responsibility of the scam . B.J.P. has clearly said that they will be taking the sensitive issue of Coal Block Allocation from Parliament to Public and on the Roads . As keeping in view the coming Parliament Elections the Opposition Parties after 2 G Spectrum Allocation have highlighted the Coal Block Allocation a scam that has been unearthed by Comptroller Auditor General .
It is very shameful session in the history of India where political leaders instead of working only fighting and wasted the time and money of the nation. I think there should be only one party to be elected with majority in 2014 election to avoid such drama in parliament and to enjoy the uninterrupted Govt. to take its right decision at right time.
MMS entered parliament from back door and is giving lecture on democracy. let him go and contest election and then talk of democracy. he is such a shamless fellow that after so many scams he is talking bible.
There should be two laws with immediate effect and that too simultaneously:- (1) No Sitting Fees/Other benefits etc. during disruption of Parliament from the date of starting disruption till the beginning of next session. and (2) Ruling Party will not have authority to investigate or bring charges etc. against supporting parties if they they do not toe the ruling party line. However, all parties will oppose the above two laws tooth and nail.
Mr.President, It is you - Yes- You personally are responsible for the wastage of our Parliaments sessions. Even after getting blackened by your involvement in the COALgate(there could be somany other scams which in which you are involved for Gandhi family and party) and cutting a sorry figure(as Washington Post has rightly observed) why still you want to stick to the chair?
No Mr. Prime-Minister, not the Opposition is to blame. You been in power and has the duty to tell the truth but nothing than the truth to the people of India and the Parliament. ONLY IF YOU CAN TELL THE TRUTH - WHAT WAS THE RULE OF MAHARAJA´S - YOU BEEN FIT TO RULE HINDU INDIA. KEEP IN MIND; YOU ARE A LUCKY PERSON IN GETTING THE POSSIBILITY TO RULE HINDU INDIA. THE RESULT IS AT PRESENT, YOU REFUSING THE HINDU TRADITION TO SPEAK THE TRUTH BUT THE TRUTH. THIS MEANS, NOTHING IS LEFT FOR YOU ANYMORE BUT TO QUIT AND MAKE NEW ELECTION POSSIBLE. BHARAT CANNOT WAIT TOO LONG ON YOUR DECISION. PLEASE GO IN PEACE!
Kudos to the PM for giving vent to his THOUGHT on the last day of monson session of the Parliament. His silence, as he has said, would have been more eloquent.
Massive continuous corruption by UPA . For their own progress.And of their Tall poppies (the few companies running the economy). Most of the Indian citizens are enraged.Soon there could be large scale riots and looting, considering the rising inflation.
