THE LEADER OF THE HOUSE (DR. MANMOHAN SINGH): Mr. Chairman, Sir, I am delighted to felicitate Shri K. Rahman Khan on his re-election as the Deputy Chairman of this august House. Sir, I think it is a measure of our collective regard for him that he has been elected to this august office unopposed. Shri Rahman Khan has earned our goodwill and admiration for the fair and wise manner in which he has conducted the proceedings of this august House for the last nearly two years. Sir, the Rajya Sabha has been called the House of Elders. The authors of our Constitution who were very farsighted men and women of great wisdom and patriotism wanted this House to guide the nation and to offer a counterpoise to the Lok Sabha. Of course, these days, we, sometimes, witness some angry and heated debates. But, at all such moments, Sir, we have been greatly impressed by the patience and understanding that both you and Shri Rahman Khan have shown. Shri Rahman Khan is a true leader of the people. He stands tall as one of our most respected educationists. I greatly value and admire his contribution to the cause of education, especially the education of our minorities. Shri Rahman Khan is a man of scholarship and learning and this has contributed to the quality of debates in our House.

Mr. Chairman, Sir, I wish Shri Rahman Khan a productive and fruitful term in this high office. I am sure you are also pleased that he has returned to assist you in conducting the proceedings of the House. I wish him well, Sir, and assure him and you of the fullest and most sincere cooperation on the part of my party, my colleagues on the Treasury Benches and my own self. Thank you. (Ends)

SHRI SITARAM YECHURY (WEST BENGAL): Mr. Chairman, Sir, I rise to felicitate Shri Rahman Khan in whom we have a great deal of faith. Without any prejudice, without any other factor that can come into his bearing, he will be a very wise counsel and will give a wise judgement sitting in the Chair. We wish him all success in the future to help us and this House in taking very important and significant decisions, and to play the role that he is destined to play, which the Prime Minister has just mentioned. ָ, ֱ ָ ߬ , ߬ ׿ֿ ֋ ֲ ߬ ֳ ־֮ ֯ ֲ ״ֻ ߬ ׿ֿ , ָ ֯ ִ֟ ֱ ׯև؛ ױָ ֠ ߬ , ߬ ꅠ ָ ٤ ֬և ֯ וִָ ֯ ָ ׮ֳ֋Ӆ օ

SHRI P.G. NARAYANAN (TAMIL NADU): Mr. Chairman, Sir, on behalf of my party, All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazagham (AIADMK), and on my own behalf, I extend warm felicitations to Shri K. Rahman Khan on his unanimous election to the Office of the Deputy Chairman.

Sir, the manner in which it has been done unanimously reflects the maturity of Indian democracy. Sir, it is not a new assignment for him. He has already served as the Deputy Chairman.

It is the duty of the Presiding Officer to ensure that the Opposition has its say. Sir, during his earlier tenure, he has given fair and reasonable opportunities to the Members of this House, irrespective of political consideration.

Sir, my only request is that problems and interests of the regional parties and smaller groups have to be looked after by the Presiding Officer.

Sir, everybody appreciates his nature and temperament; and, so, he deserves this position. Sir, I hope his vast experience and good nature will definitely help him in maintaining the dignity and decorum of this House, even during heated discussions and conflicts in this House.

Sir, I congratulate Shri K. Rahman Khan on his assuming this responsibility. I wish to assure him our fullest cooperation at all times.

SHRI RAVULA CHANDRA SEKAR REDDY (ANDHRA PRADESH): Sir, I congratulate Shri K. Rahman Khan on his re-election as Deputy Chairman of this august House.

Sir, I would request you and Shri Rahman Khan to look at the regional parties also. He hails from southern India. We, from southern India, are not very well versed in Hindi and so, we are often forced to speak either in English or our own regional language. There are a few problems as far as southern India is concerned and whenever we Members from the regional parties represent the grievances of the people, we should be given reasonable opportunities.

While extending our fullest cooperation on behalf of my party colleagues and on my own behalf, I once again congratulate him on his re-election as the Deputy Chairman of this august House. (Ends)

SHRI B.J. PANDA (ORISSA): Sir, it gives me great pleasure to welcome Shri K. Rahman Khan to his second term as the Deputy Chairman of this House. He has upheld that long tradition in this House of a very fair and balanced approach in the Chair carrying along the whole House, all the Membership with him. But, that should have come as no surprise, because even as a Member before he took on the responsibility as Deputy Chairman for the first time, he exhibited the same kind of temperament, fairness, balance and has set an example for all Members. I wish him all the very best in this new term of his as Deputy Chairman; and I am sure he will carry forward the same spirit that he has demonstrated in the past. (Ends)

MR. CHAIRMAN: I join the House in congratulating Shri K. Rahman Khan on his unanimous election to the Office of Deputy Chairman of Rajya Sabha for the second term. Shri Khan's unanimous election has amply demonstrated that he has endeared himself to all sections of the House.

Shri Khan was last elected as the Deputy Chairman on the 22nd July, 2004, and we have now been quite used to seeing him in the Chair. He has conducted the proceedings of the House with great dignity and charm. During moments of heat in the House, I have always seen him cool and calm, tackling difficult situations with great dexterity and tact. With the goodwill that he has earned, I have no doubt in my mind, that Shri Khan would always carry all sections of the House with him.

On behalf of the House and on my own behalf, I congratulate Shri Rahman Khan on entering upon the Office of the Deputy Chairman of Rajya Sabha and wish him all success.

Sir, I am immensely grateful to the House for electing me as the Deputy Chairman of the Rajya Sabha for the second time. At the outset, I am beholden to my leader, Congress President, Shrimati Sonia Gandhiji, and the hon. Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singhji, for making it possible for me to come back to this august House whose Members have become so near and dear to me. I am again grateful to the hon. Congress President, Shrimati Sonia Gandhi, the hon. Prime Minister, the Leader of the House, the Leader of the Opposition, and leaders of all political parties who have kindly reposed their confidence in me.

I am particularly grateful to you, Sir, who is a father figure to all of us, and I have, particularly, been blessed with your warm affection, wisdom and guidance which helped me in undertaking this great responsibility of my previous stint and heartily inspiring me this time also. It is with a sense of deep humility and great respect to the hon. Members that I undertake this responsibility at a time when the proceedings of this House are under greater focus and scanner of public and the media. Many kind words have been expressed about me by the respected Prime Minister, the Leader of the Opposition and you, Sir, and the leaders of all the political parties, which I may not deserve. However, I take them as an inspiration to live up to your expectations. Sir, I am acutely aware that as a presiding officer, I have to act as an mpire, to be fair and firm, undeterred by emotions or commotions without fear or favour.

At the same time, I have to do my sacred duty to the Constitution and the rules of the Parliament which we have laid ourselves.

SHRI K. RAHMAN KHAN (CONTD.): I will strive to do my job with a human touch by understanding the concerns, worries, emotions and attitude of every Member without hurting anyone and without allowing the smile to vanish from my face. In my previous stint, I have learnt a lot from the hon. Members and I have developed intimate understanding and rapprochement from all of you.

I hope and pray that these will prove to be an asset to help me to fulfil my responsibility to your expectations and raise the performance and dignity of the House to win the appreciation of the people, who are our masters.

I shall strive to ensure, under the guidance of hon. Chairman, that the House proceedings are conducted with efficiency and dignity, its rules are strictly followed and every Member gets the opportunity to express and to debate, within the time constraint. In this difficult task, I seek your complete cooperation, trust, confidence and understanding, and, above all, sympathy and love, if I may fail to please one and all. Let us set high standards of thinking and discussion, patriotism and commitment to help our great nation march ahead to usher in real freedom of economic development, education, prosperity and happiness for all.

Once again, I bow in humility and seek blessings of Almighty God to make my task and the mission of this August House succeed in flying colours. Thank you. (Ends)

I want to, particularly, thank Shri V. Narayanasamyji for having pointed out, and I quote him, "that Rural Development and Panchayati Raj is the lifeline of our country." I think that just sums it up. If we do not project our lifeline, there cannot be any life. I think Shri Narayanasamyji is completely correct in suggesting that it is to the extent to which we promote Panchayati Raj that we can promote development in modern times of our country by the utilisation of this ancient institution.

SHRI MANI SHANKAR AIYAR (CONTD.): It was Shri Matilal Sarkar who pointed out -- and I would like to quote him -- that both money power and political power are vested in the exploiting class. Now, if we can divert that political power to the have-nots, he said that the purpose of Panchayati Raj will be served. I could not agree more with him. It is in empowering the have-nots that Panchayati Raj comes entirely into its own. I am particularly grateful to Dr. P.C. Alexander for having participated in that debate and for being present over there. Of all those who summed up the significance of Panchayati Raj in the course of this debate, I think, it was Dr. Alexander, with his vast experience of not only the Indian bureaucracy and the Indian polity, but also the years that he spent as he was a very young civil servant in Shri S.K. Dey's Ministry of Community Development that got summed up in the wisdom of two remarks -- one at the start of his intervention and one at the conclusion -- when at the start, he said that of all the Ministries, he believed that it was the Ministry dealing with the Rural Development -- in which, I trust, he includes my Ministry -- which should be right at the top. And I agree with him that unless and until we recognise that the vast majority of our people live in rural India and that it is only a minority of our national income that is generated for this majority of people and, therefore, it is through the empowerment of our rural people which results in their securing their entitlements and by a combination of empowerment and entitlement to ensure their enrichment, there is no other way in which we can promote rural prosperity and poverty eradication. I, therefore, regard it as being of the utmost significance that the very first Conference of Chief Ministers which Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh, convened within one month of the formation of the UPA Government had as its theme -- and I am now not paraphrasing, I am quoting -- the subject 'Rural Prosperity and Poverty Eradication through Panchayati Raj'. So, I am glad to be able to inform Dr. Alexander that we completely accept the priorities that he has set for this country and I do endorse his view. In fact, I am deeply inspired by it that he has used the expression which I long wanted to use about this remarkable transformation through Panchayati Raj which is taking place in rural India, that it is -- and now, I quote Dr. Alexander -- 'a revolutionary movement'. There is a revolution going on through Panchayati Raj in our countryside and it is only to the extent to which this hon. Parliament involves itself in this revolutionary movement that we will truly attain the objective which Gandhiji placed before us which is Poorna Swaraj through Gram Swaraj.

Sir, in this connection, I think, we need to take stock, at this stage, of where exactly we stand with respect to Panchayati Raj ֲ ִ֮ ֻֻ ֋ , ֯ ן ָ ֮ ӓֵ֟ ã֮ פ ֮ , ֻܵ ֲ ֻ ֟ , ׻ ϳ׾֟ ׯ֔ 12 ֻ ןָ ׳ֵ֮ ֋ ֲ ï™ ֟ ӓֵ֟ ֕ ׾ֱ , ׯ֔ ֜ ָ ֻ ֲִֵ , ̸֧֕ ֮ , ֜ ָ פ ָ , פ ָ פ ן ֋, ֲ ֜ ׿ ֟ , ֲ֕ ֟ ֕߾ Ӭ 1989 India may be the world's largest democracy, but it is also the world's least representative democracy.
