PATNA: Jan Adhikar Party (JAP) chief and parliamentarian Pappu Yadav kicked up a fresh debate today saying there is no need for Rajya Sabha and the Legislative Councils a day after Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar had pitched for abolishing the Governor’s post.
“Both the Rajya Sabha and the Legislative Councils were formed by British regime to enjoy luxury of power but now that India has got independence, there is no need for such arrangements right now,” Yadav tol a Press conference in Patna today.
Demanding that the existing arrangements be removed forthwith, Yadav announced to file a PIL in the Supreme Court.
“I will raise this issue in the Monsoon session of Parliament and will also file a PIL in the Supreme Court for abolishing the arrangements of the Rajya Sabha and the Councils,” Yadav told the media today.
He said the Upper Houses both at the Centre and in the States were no longer required as it is a “complete waste of hard-earned public money”. “Rather, the money should be spent on education and health,” he opined.
Yesterday, Bihar Chief Minister had pitched for abolishing the Governor’s post at the meeting of the Inter-State Council held in New Delhi.
