Rajasthan Assembly Speaker CP Joshi on Wednesday said the executive needs to be made more accountable to keep the country’s democracy strong.
He said there should be an amendment in law and the number of House sittings should be increased so that the scrutiny of the executive can be done in a better way. Joshi was addressing the inaugural ceremony of the 83rd All India Presiding Officers Conference inside the state assembly today. “To make sure the country’s democracy is strong, we will have to make the executive more accountable. Don’t take me wrong…but we are governed by executive dictatorship,” Joshi said.
He said that “I want that there should be an amendment in law so that the number of sittings is increased so that scrutiny of the executive can be done in a better way.”
Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar, Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla, Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairman Harivansh, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and Leader of Opposition in Rajasthan Assembly Gulab Chand Kataria were also present.
