Public representatives have become ‘laughing stock’: Vice president

Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar has expressed concerns over the “inappropriate conduct” of public representatives inside Parliament and state assemblies, stating that they have become a “laughing stock” before the public.
The Vice President also called for “widespread contemplation” of the issue at all levels, saying it must be resolved for the sake of the country and society. “The conduct of our public representatives in the world’s largest democracy should be exemplary. The founding fathers of the Constitution had expected this. Today’s situation is very serious and worrisome. The reason for the worry is that the undignified conduct has crossed all limits. I fail to know how the public representatives can have such conduct while putting forth their points in Parliament or in the Assembly. They have become a laughing stock before the public,” Dhankhar said while addressing a felicitation programme in the Rajasthan Assembly on Tuesday.
