Bihar Vidhan Parishad In Patna College

Bihar Vidhan Parishad In Patna College
January 20, 2012

In a step to celebrate its centenary occasion in style, for the first time in the history of Bihar Legislative Council, it organised its meeting outside the vidhan parishad building. The 150 years old patna college witnessed this historical moment as the meeting conducted at the first floor in the administrative building.  The interior of the meeting room were organised in such a fashion that a glimpse made one believe that the coucil is in session in its original form. Speaker Tarakant Jha, presided the function and addressed the audience who were all legislature of the council. Amid full media glare the Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, who is also member of the council appreciated the effort of the speaker who made it possible to organise such a meetings. "This will help people aware of the importance of legislative council". He said "the speaker Tarakant Jha wanted to run the session atleast for a day but the constitutional act 176 does allow him to do so and thus a meeting instead of session has been organised".The veteran leader Ramashray Prasad from the ruling Janta Dal(U), the most senior member of the council also addressed the house. He was the member of the council in 1962 too and many times later. RJD's Ghulam Gaus, from Congress Chandan Baghchi and MCP leader Kedar Nath Pandey were also speak for few moments. Deputy CM, Sushil Kr. Modi conveyed the message of importance of role of women in politics and recall the past of the council how the resolution for voting rights to women were dropped in the house in 1918 and 1925. He also named the educationalist Sir Ganesh Dutt who opposes the idea of giving voting rights to women.

A total of 70 legislature out of 73 were present in the meeting and this proportion of presence is really fantastic said the speaker in his final bit of speech. It is well known that only six states in India having legislative council and following the steps developed states like Punjab is doing its constitutional effort to house council in its state too.
