Went to attend the programme 'We the people' on NDTV anchored by my favourite Barkha Dutt. Topic was whether 'Parliament is becoming a House of adjournment'. Panel speakers comprised of Chandan Mitra, Mani Shanker Aiyar, Derek O' Brian, Jay Panda, Mark Tully etc. Speakers expressed diverse views on why the Parliament was not running. Liked the views of Jay Panda who advocated that some rules need to be framed in the day to day running of Parliament, some minimum working hours as mandatory. Some advocated no pay if no work put in. I asked a question as why Parliament could not run so that we can know the views of various parties on issues like FDI etc. If leaders can come and debate in TV studios why can't they debate in Parliament
