RAJYA SABHA VALEDICTORY REMARKS – 230 th Session ( 21. 2 .2014 )

MR. CHAIRMAN
:
Hon’ble Members, the 230
th
Session
of
the Rajya Sabha,
has taken place in two parts. The first
part had 10 sittings in
December, 2013
. The Session
was resumed on the 5
th
of F
ebruary
,
2014 and
as
scheduled,
it
comes to
a close
today, the 21
st
of
February, 2014.
In all, the House sat for 22 sittings.
The House
bid
farewell to 54 retiring Members,
scheduled to retire
in the months of April and May, 2014
and thanked them for thei
r services
.
During the entire Session, but for two Short Notice
Questions, no Starred Questions could be answered
orally. This compels need for introspection about the
relevance of the Question Hour itself. There were no
Calling Attentions or Short Dura
tion Discussions. The
whole Session was marked by persistent obstruction of
the proceedings by the Members by coming into the well
of the House and shouting slogans and displaying
placards. Despite this, on the last few days, the House
transacted business
and in all, during this Session,
1
7
Bills were passed/returned.

:2:
I have asked the Secretary

General to make
available the statistical information relating to this
Session.
The National Song, (”
Vande Mataram”
to be played
.)
MR. CHAIRMA
N
: The House stands adjourned
sine die
.
