VP Dhankhar Criticizes Jairam Ramesh Over Remarks On RLD Chief

Vice President and Rajya Sabha Chairman Jagdeep Dhankhar considered resigning after Congress MPs, led by Jairam Ramesh, disrupted proceedings. The chaos ensued when Jayant Chaudhary was given the floor to discuss the government’s decision to honour his grandfather, former Prime Minister Chaudhary Charan Singh. Dhankhar condemned Ramesh’s behaviour, likening it to feasting at a cremation ground, and questioned his suitability for the Upper House.

The Congress MPs argued that the Chairman didn’t specify when Jayant Chaudhary would speak, and the House agenda didn’t include discussions on the Bharat Ratna for Chaudhary Charan Singh and other leaders. Ramesh’s remarks, implying RLD’s potential alignment with BJP, infuriated Dhankhar, who criticized Ramesh’s conduct and deemed him unfit for the House.

Despite protests, Dhankhar allowed Leader of the Opposition Mallikarjun Kharge to voice concerns. Kharge criticized the Chairman’s discretion in allowing Chaudhary to speak and challenged the lack of rules in this decision. Dhankhar, dissatisfied with Kharge’s objections, accused Congress of disrespecting Chaudhary Charan Singh.

Union Ministers criticized Congress’s stance on Chaudhary’s Bharat Ratna, demanding Kharge’s apology for disrespecting the Chair. Dhankhar read Jayant Chaudhary’s notice to speak, allowing him to present his views. Opposition MPs argued that clarity from the Chair could have prevented the chaos.

Later, Dhankhar expressed distress over the day’s events, considering resignation due to the disrespect shown during Chaudhary’s speech and Ramesh’s remarks. He emphasized maintaining dignity in debates and condemned the behaviour, urging collective condemnation to prevent further degradation of parliamentary decorum.

Dhankhar regretted the House’s fallen level and called for sensitivity in respecting leaders. He criticized Kharge’s conduct and apologized for failing to uphold decorum. He stressed the need to prevent such incidents from tarnishing the House’s image and urged condemnation from all members.
