The House reassembled at one of the clock,

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN in the Chair.

--------

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Hon. Members, Mr. Janardhana Poojary has raised two issues in the morning. One is that the word * has been used during the time of discussion. I have examined it. It will be expunged from the proceedings of the House. Another thing is, the hon. Leader of the Opposition, while speaking, has said that * That is also unparliamentary. ...(Interruptions)... I have examined it. I have examined it. Only after examination, I am saying. I have seen; it is unparliamentary. So, it is removed from the record. ...(Interruptions)...

SHRI S.S. AHLUWALIA: What about * ?

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: It is not in good taste.

SHRI S.S. AHLUWALIA: The word * is not in good taste! ...(Interruptions)...

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Anyhow, the Chair has, after examination, given the ruling. That is all. Now, the discussion on.....(Interruptions).....

SHRI V. NARAYANASAMY: The Minister of State is also here. ...(Interruptions)...

SHRI YASHWANT SINHA: Sir, please listen to me for a minute. Sir, there have been numerous occasions in this House, and also in the other, where simultaneously, the same subject has been discussed, and whoever is the Minister in-charge or the rest of the Government, they have been hard pressed to be present in both House. We are aware of it because we have also served on the Treasury Benches. There have been debates on the Budget, there have been debates on Home Ministry's issues, there have been debates on other Ministry's issues. What does the Government of-the-day do? The Government of-the-day arranges it in such a manner that the most important speeches are heard by the Ministers concerned. I remember, Sir, personally that when, for instance, Dr. Manmohan Singh or Mr. Pranab Mukherjee was speaking on the Budget, I made sure, even if the discussion was going on in the Lok Sabha, to be present to listen to their speeches. Okay. Now, this is a matter of courtesy. What you are saying, Sir, is absolutely right that in terms of the rules, in terms of your rulings, that a senior Cabinet Minister is present or that two Cabinet Ministers are present. That is fine. But this is a demand, this is a request which was made by the Leader of the Opposition. Right in the beginning, at 11 o'clock, when he raised this issue, he had mentioned this point.

(Contd. by 1P)

-MKS-TMV-KLG/1P/1.05

SHRI YASHWANT SINHA (CONTD.) The Government had enough time to arrange its Ministers in such a manner that one of the three could be present here to listen to what Dr. Murli Manohan Joshi has to say. This is what courtesy demands. The Government is just being plain and simply discourteous to the Opposition in resisting this demand. (Interruptions)

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Mr. Jaipal Reddy wants to reply. (Interruptions)....

THE MINISTER OF URBAN DEVELOPMENT (SHRI S. JAIPAL REDDY): Sir, the hon. Member, Yashwant Sinhaji, made a few points to which I respond. First, the Leader of the Opposition said that one of the three should respond to the debate. He was reasonable enough to say that one of the three should respond to the debate. I repeat that he did not say that one of the three should be present throughout the debate. (Interruptions).....

SHRI S.S. AHLUWALIA: It is not true. (Interruptions)...

SHRI S. JAIPAL REDDY: No. Please check up the record. (Interruptions)...

SHRI S.S. AHLUWALIA: You call for the record. He said, "attend to". It was said in the morning itself. (Interruptions)

SHRI S. JAIPAL REDDY: Sir, there was a contradiction between the position taken by Jaswant Singhji and the position taken by Sushmaji. Jaswant Singhji wanted that one of the three should respond to the debate, whereas Sushmaji insisted upon the attendance of one of the three even throughout the debate. Secondly, Shri Yashwant Sinha said about the arrangements that used to be made during the debate on the Budget. I hope he appreciates the distinction between the leisurely debate on the Budget and this urgent discussion. The Home Minister is speaking there. He can't come. The Minister of State for Home Affairs is taking notes and the Union Home Minister will reply to the debate in this House. In the meantime, the debate must go on. Thirdly and most importantly, all sides are equally exercised over the gravity of what happened in Doda. Having regard to the gravity of that occasion, let us, therefore, discuss the issue. (Interruptions).....

SHRI YASHWANT SINHA: You went to Doda from the Government side. (Interruptions)...

SHRI S. JAIPAL REDDY: We have the Minister of State for Home Affairs here. (Interruptions) ...
