Lawmakers should be held accountable for their conduct: Venkaiah Naidu.


Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu on Tuesday asked people to participate in a ‘Mission 5000’, and as part of that he asked the country’s nearly 5,000 MPs, MLAs and MLCs for constructive participation for an effective Parliamentary democracy.

He asked people to reach out to their elected representatives and influence them to conduct themselves positively. Delivering the first Pranab Mukherjee Memorial Lecture, on the death anniversary of the former President, Naidu said: “What is happening inside legislatures for some years now has emerged as a major area of concern. While legislatures are meant for deliberation on issues of wider public concern and making of effective laws for the benefit of people and the nation, disruption has emerged as the chief instrument of Parliamentary conduct and functioning.
