To coverup the everseen corruption. A PAC,CAG or even a CBI enquiry will not give light in to this corruption. So the JPC need of opposition is acceptable. It is not a loss to Indian Democracy.

These people should be fined and absenteeism and creating nuisance in the parliament should not be allowed.It is actually a shame for the biggest democracy of the world that the torch bearers of the same are actually working towrads making it a pseudo democracy

Their issue is that they did not get any share in corrupted money. In that case, they dont care about either the logjam or impact it creates on the economy or people.
In the past history, JPC was formed for 4 times and neither the reports are used nor recommendations are implemented (to my knowledge) but still they demand for it. It does not much sense. They just want to show us their presence.

Most of them are anyways too busy debating on news channels every evening. Yup, they should be fined heavily for stalling the House. Maybe the media could serve as an additional source of pocket money for them!

Right now this is what is required. Perchance the Future shall be different where Politicians shall survive on the Government pay. But, as I have said before, let me receive nothing for being a disruption.
