Pushing Anti-Graft Bills through ordinance is unethical!
It was really a good decision by the UPA Cabinet that it didn't push anti-graft Bills through ordinance. Ordinances should be used rarely and in case of urgent public need only. In any case ordinances need to be passed by the Parliament with in stipulated period (six-month) else the ordinance itself becomes null and void.

As per the Constitution, laws must be legislated at the Parliament after due discussion and debates. Some time some laws/Acts are sent to standing committees for further scrutiny and necessary changes considering other provisions. It should also be hoisted on Internet to seek public opinions.

No law should be passed or implemented in haste. It's Rahul Gandhi, who pushed for the anti-graft bills through ordinance route. The clear agenda is to take political mileage projecting him as anti-graft crusader.

But question is what UPA did in last decade? If it was so interested in these Bills, why it didn't introduce and passed in the Parliament? When the 15th Lok Sabha term has nearly ended, why take an ordinance route? If you can pass Telangana, why not these bills? If required the sessions could had been extended?

The excuse that due to opposition's bullies/disturbances, those bills couldn't be tabled in Parliament, is not tenable because opposition had also helped in passing the Food Security Bill, Lokpal Bill and even controversial Telangana Bill. Thus none would accept this excuse. Interestingly Rahul in every meeting speaks about Women's Reservation Bill.

The Bill has already been passed by the Rajya Sabha. It is only to be passed in the Lok Sabha now. BJP, Left, AIDMK and TMC support this bill. Whenever it will be introduced in the Lok Sabha, it would get 2/3rd majority. So, why it wasn't brought in any of the sessions post Rajya Sabha clearance?

Point is clear, that Rahul Gandhi must realize that people are not fool. They can see through vested political design in pushing Bills through Ordinance route. Pushing anti-graft bills will never absolve his party from the scams that are exposed during UPA-II tenure.
