"Disruption of an hour's work of parliament costs us Rs25 lakh". Why parliamentarians shall not be liable ???

As per an estimated report, the loss of four hours work in the Lok Sabha due to the bedlam over the opposition's boycott in Parliament's current session is estimated to have caused a Rs 1 crore loss to the nation. The disruption came despite an appeal for the session's smooth running to enable important legislative business, like Food Security Bill and others. All political parties should realize that they have important legislation to discuss in this session and that the session runs smoothly. But the Lok Sabha was adjourned since many days,due to the uproars of BJP's and other opposite parties' parliamentarian. Officials of PRS Legislative Research, a policy study group, noted that the Lok Sabha, which normally meets for five hours a day, was in session for just about half-an-hour as it had to be adjourned due to the pandemonium..A rough estimate, based on the budgetary allocation for parliament's functioning, puts the cost of an hour's work of parliament at Rs.25 lakh. Considering this, the exchequer lost about Rs 1 crore. But obviously due to the deliberate defaults in the Parliament, the Nation has incurred not only a great deal of monitory loss of the public money but also an awful delay in the enactment of some important intended legislation, for which these parliamentarian are duty bound to discuss, debate and resolve to in the large interest of our Nation.It ought to be now the voice of the people of our Nation, at this crucial juncture if all these disrupting parliamentarian should be made collectively responsible for such a huge loss to the Nation.
