Opposition raises questions on delay in reconstitution of parliamentary standing committees


New Delhi: The opposition has raised questions regarding the reconstitution of the Standing Committee of Parliament. Congress and Trinamool Congress leaders have attacked the BJP and the government along with raising questions about the delay in the reorganization.

Questioning the reorganization, Congress Rajya Sabha MP and former Union Minister Jairam Ramesh made a tweet. He tweeted that, “The annual term of the Parliamentary Standing Committees ended on September 13, but the new committees have not been announced yet. What is the reason for this delay?”

Responding to this question of Jairam Ramesh, Trinamool Congress MP Derek O’Brien not only raised the question but also took a jibe at the BJP. Derek O’Brien wrote in a tweet- “I have learned that all political parties have given the names of their respective members to these committees but only one major party has not. There is no reward for guessing” Obviously Derek O’Brien’s target is on the BJP and according to him, due to this the committees have not been reconstituted.

The tenure of committees is one year.

There are a total of 24 standing committees of Parliament whose term is one year. After one year these committees are re-constituted. Of these, 8 committees are headed by Rajya Sabha MPs, while the remaining 16 committees are headed by members of the Lok Sabha. All standing committees are related to some ministry and after reviewing the subjects of their respective ministries, they present their report in Parliament. These committees consist of 31 members including the chairperson, excluding the chairman, 20 members from the Lok Sabha and 10 members from the Rajya Sabha.

The annual term of these committees ended on the 13th of last month and the formation of new committees is awaited. By the way, it is believed that within the next one week these committees will be reconstituted.
