TDP whose strength is 22 (in both the house) now had been allotted two rooms 135 and 136 at the third floor. This is also on the basis of merit according to their strength.
In a democracy number (strength) always matter as this is considered as the mandate of the public. If you have less number then you have to follow the suit (leaving the room allotted to you earlier and accepting the re-allotted room). Citing sentimental attachment to this room because it was inaugurated by TDP founder N.T. Ramarao and they were occupying this office for last 30 years is utter ridiculous.
By this logic N. Chandra Babu Naidu should leave Chief Ministership of Andhra Pradesh despite having numbers as the Congress has ruled Andhra Pradesh for more years and their sentiment might be linked with ruling the state! If sentiment plays bigger roles than numbers then why NDA is rejecting LOP status to the Congress citing lacking required numbers (10% of LS seats)?
In any case TDP's sentimental link to NTR is also ridiculous. None has forgotten how NTR was removed unceremoniously by his Son-in-Law (N. Chandrababu Naidu) -led fraction through a strategic coup. NTR was cornered and isolated by the party he founded. Public has no short memory nowadays.
Point is whether the office inside Parliament or bungalow allotted earlier to public representatives remain forcibly occupied even if public mandate goes against them. This is in fact a bullish act and clear cut insult to public mandate!
In another case too although BJD is allotted a bigger room due to their strength in Parliament, JDU is yet to leave that room despite they are re-allotted a smaller room on the basis of their reduced strength. JDU is adamant not to leave the room!
All these public representatives claim themselves as true democrats and socialist in public screaming and repeating sermons. But their behavior does not reflect that.
The only good development that is worth to notice is President Pranab Mukherjee's passionate call to MPs not to involve in petty acts and maintain Parliamentary dignity. The Lok Sabha speaker is expected to rein these MPs if required with iron fists.
Parliament is no one's personal property. It's the temple of democracy and owned by the public of India. The representatives of the true master of this democracy have no right to desecrate this August House through their dirty act, uncivilized conduct and cheap cock fights!
