BJP MPs to contribute for relief of victims of Assam violence
15/08/2012 19:47:41  PTI

 NEW DELHI: BJP MPs from both Houses of Parliament today decided to contribute Rs 50,000 from their MPLAD fund for relief and rehabilitation of those affected by ethnic violence in Assam and the people displaced by the landslides in Uttarakhand.

At its weekly Parliamentary Party meeting, BJP MPs offered to contribute Rs 50,000 for the two relief funds from their MPLAD fund. The party is also likely to contribute some amount to this fund.

BJP Rajya Sabha MP VP Singh Bhadnor suggested that members contribute from their salary instead of the MPLAD fund. However, this was shot down by other members.

Bhagat Singh Koshiyari raised the issue of the difficulties being faced by those affected by the recent landslides in the Uttarkashi region.

Harin Pathak discussed the Black money issue on which Baba Ramdev had gone on a fast. He was asked to raise the issue in the Lok Sabha today during Question Hour.

BJP is also likely to reshuffle some of its members in the various Standing Committees of Parliament.

Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj praised the party's performance in Parliament in highlighting the problems related to the ethnic violence in Assam and also raised the issu`e of the recent violence in Mumbai.

The party will support the Left on the power grid failure issue which is likely to be raised by Basudev Acharia (CPM).

Swaraj's Rajya Sabha counterpart Arun Jaitley dwelt at length on the problems being faced by pilgrims going to the Amarnath shrine. He also spoke on the Lokpal Bill, price rise and the state of the economy.

To what benetit
BJP should have left no stone unturned to ensure that the illegal infilters are pushed back to Bengladesh by moving petitions in the courts of law, Human Rights Commission, etc. Also, all possible steps to ensure such incidents do not repeat in the future. Has the BJP done any of these? Just providing a day's salary to the victims is nothing more than a political circus. No wonder the students from NE left BJP rules States despite assurance from the Government and ABVP while the situation is under control in Hyderabad, Pune, etc. or wherever the government is preaching secularism.
Hindu organisations need to learn and has a long way to go before becoming mature enough to handle crises like these.

MPs' contribution to relief

The decision to contribute Rs.50,000/- i.e. one month's salary by each BJP MP to the relief to victims in Assam violence was taken at the Parliamentary Party Meeting on 8th August. So it is wrong that the suggestion of Shri V P Singh was shot down. When the Uttarakashi landslides relief was mentioned by Shri Koshiari, there was suggestion to contribute from MPLAD fund to the tune of about Rs. 10 lakhs by each MP and this was accepted also.
