THE MINISTER OF PARLIAMENTARY AFFAIRS (SHRI PRIYARANJAN DASMUNSI): Mr. Deputy Chairman, Sir, We deeply appreciate the sentiments expressed by the Members from the beginning. Accordingly, Sir, I would like to inform you that yesterday and day before yesterday both in the Lower House and in this House over and above our listed Government business, each Member of the House is aware, that the Government business is prepared by the Parliamentary Affairs Minister with the consent of the Government and that gets always the precedence. Sushmaji is here. But sometimes issues even more important than the Government business crop up and that get precedence in consultation with the parties and the Chair. Accordingly, Sir, yesterday in the List of Business, you will find, the first item was the Prevention of Parliament Disqualification Act. That was the first item and the first item was not the Bombay blast. But we agreed that since Bombay blast was considered more sensitive by all parties and, therefore, decided that it should get precedence. And it was discussed. It was supposed to be concluded yesterday itself. Unfortunately, some developments took place, the House was adjourned and it could not be concluded. Again we sent our business officially from the Government giving priority to the Message from Mahamahim Rashtrapatiji and you will appreciate that when we sent the Message the Bombay blast discussion was inconclusive for reasons known to all of you. Sir, we are second to none to appreciate the concern of the Members and importance of the blast and importance of the activities that happened during blast and the sensitivity of this issue. But, Sir, it is also very important that the Message of Mahamahim Rashtrapati is before the House for the last ...((Interruptions)... Let me conclude. ...((Interruptions)... I have not yet concluded.

SHRI YASHWANT SINHA: You have decided to overrule Rashtrapatiji. ...((Interruptions)...

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: He has not yet concluded. ...((Interruptions)... Let him conclude. ...((Interruptions)...Let him conclude. ...((Interruptions)...

SHRI PRIYARANJAN DASMUNSI: Sushmaji is here. ...((Interruptions)... If she had been in my position, she would have always preferred the Government business...((Interruptions)... Let me conclude. ...((Interruptions)... Sir, today in the morning...((Interruptions)...

SHRI YASHWANT SINHA: But President should not be brought into picture. ...((Interruptions)...

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Let him conclude. ...((Interruptions)...

SHRI PRIYARANJAN DASMUNSI: I remember when they were in the Government, the Chair gave a ruling..((Interruptions)... We want to carry on with that ruling and we do not want to dishonour the Chair who gave his own ruling. ...((Interruptions)...

SHRI PRIYARANJAN DASMUNSI: Sir, with respect to the ruling and the sentiments of the House, I propose let the ruling be honoured and our business will conclude by 2.30 and at 3.00 we will start with the discussion on the bomb blast. Sir, that is my plea before the House.

SHRI ARUN SHOURIE: Firstly, the President is being over-ruled. He is being * and now he is being used as an alibi.


* Expunged as ordered by the Chair.

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: No, no, please remove that.

SHRI PRIYARANJAN DASMUNSI: (Interruptions) You don't know the parliamentary rules. You only...(Interruptions)... You have...(Interruptions)... disregard. (Interruptions) It should be...(Interruptions)...with contempt.

SHRI C. RAMACHANDRAIAH: What is the respect you have got for the President?

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Mr. Ramachandraiah, please sit down.

SHRI YASHWANT SINHA: Sir, who brought the President of India into the discussion of the House? We did not...Interruptions)... The Bill is already tabled. (Interruptions) He is referring to the President...(Interruptions)...

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: There is an impression that we are not going to take up the discussion on the bombay blast today. We are going to take up the Bombay blast discussion today itself. ֯ ֮ ו֋ ֋, ֲ ָ ....(־֮֬)..You please listen and then whatever you want to say, you say. I don't object. Yesterday, the Business Advisory Committee had put four hours for this. The entire day we wanted to discuss. For reasons beyond our control yesterday, this was not taken up. In the Business Advisory Committee the agenda was announced. Everything was known. Now that the Chairman has given the ruling, I am bound to go by the Chairman's ruling. I would appeal to the House, let us discuss and take up the discussion on the Bombay blast. An impression is there that we are not giving priority. We are going to discuss Bombay blast today. Whatever may be the time, we will discuss Bombay blast today.

SHRI YASHWANT SINHA: "Whatever may be the time", then you start Bombay blast now. (Interruptions)

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: I agree. It is not in my hands. The Chairman has given the ruling. I have no right to reverse the ruling of the Chair.

SHRI C. RAMACHANDRAIAH: There are two more Bills that are being carried forward since three days. (Interruptions) Two more Bills are being carried forward continuously for three days....(Interruptions)...What is the priority?

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Mr. Ramachandraiah,...(Interruptions)...

SHRI YASHWANT SINHA: Shiv Sena Members walked out of this House insisting that Bombay blast should be taken up even before price rise and now we have taken up that discussion. We are leaving it in the middle.

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: We have taken up that. (Interruptions)

SHRI N. JOTHI: Why should it be given the first preference?

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Mr. Jothi, all this has been discussed. The Chairman has given the ruling. I am bound by the Chairman's ruling. (Interruptions)

SHRI N. JOTHI: We are expressing our sentiments.

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Yes, you have every right to express your sentiments. You are expressing your sentiments. That is going on record. Your sentiment is respected but the ruling of the Chairman is also there and we have to obey the ruling.

SHRI N. JOTHI: ...(Interruptions)... ruling is much more. (Interruptions)

SHRI N. JOTHI: People are attacked and are dying. You want to save some Members.
