tattar pattar of delhi corridor gossips

By R Rajagopalan

Sitaram Yechury CPM leader articulated a theory to
Chairman Rajya Sabha not to have live telecast of the
Rajya Sabha question hour. Various opinions are being
rendered, but final decision will be taken after consulting many
political parties and media organisations. Sitaram yechury 
apprehensions are that the Chair expunges certain remarks
but that is telecast, after that what was the use of removing from
records, when huge viewers had already listened to the "unparliamentary
word"  Best is use to the 'nuclear button" placed on the right side
of the Chairman seat. If he pressed the button the telecast can
be blacked out.
Andhra Pradesh Congress is making efforts 
to get Vijayalakshmi Reddy the wife of Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy
elected unopposed from Pulivendla Assembly Constitutency.
Informal approval from the AICC has been obtained by Andhra
congress leaders to liaise with Opposition parties like TDP and
Left not to field their candidates. On emotional appeal, there
is possibility of her winning. Similar to that PV Narasimha Rao
when he contested TDP NT Rama Rao did not field any candidate
in 1991.
Grievances from the Women mediapersons covering proceedings of Parliament
to Speaker of Lok Sabha and Deputy Chairman of Rajya Sabha were
promptly redressed. To reserve "wash rooms" for women journalists.
Urgent instructions were issued to CPWD to arrange
"special corner rooms" for women mediapersons.
Such a massive structure of Parliament does not have
a reserved wash room for women. Deputy Chairman Rajya Sabha
conveyed to Women Media organisation that problem is genuine
Three Union Ministers of state of a key ally of UPA suspect that
their telephone conversations are being monitored by their party
Minister who is holding cabinet status. internal politicking
matters of their party organisational matters be overheard.
when these three junior ministers speak on their mobile
or land line. Smartly these three ministers do not use the
Government phone, provided to them by Parliament, but have
shifted to private phone operators. What will the Cabinet minister
now do is their simple questions.
