Finally Civil Society Won

FINALLY PRESSURE BY CITIZENS 
COMPELLED LAWMAKERS 
TO OWN THEIR RESPONSIBILITY AND PASS
 JUVENILE JUSTICE ACT.

This Juvenile Justice Act passed yesterday by the Rajaj Sabha members after full Dramatics was not a willfully passed spontaneous act by some opposition parties who were again planning to junk it with the select committee.
We must know who are all these political leaders who have been playing their politics over this Juvenile justice Act.
Congress had started on the negative note when the discussion started and also was of the view to let the act be thoroughly studied by the Select committee and not to let it get passed by the house in Hurry Barry.
In hurry Barry ??? What the hell are the leaders of Congress, CPI-:M, JDU, BSP are talking ? Three years none of them had even thought of this important ACT which needed to be introduced urgently. But all these political leaders were busy fighting in self serving politics.
WHO CARED ALL THESE THREE YEARS?
THE CITIZENS OF THIS COUNTRY WERE VERY UPSET. IN UTTER DISGUST WHEN NIRBHAYA´S CRUEL RAPIST WAS RELEASED TO WALK FREE, NIRBHAYA´S PARENTS CAME OUT IN PROTEST DEMANDING THIS BILL TO BE PASSED IMMEDIATELY WITHOUT ANY DRAMA BY POLITICIANS WHO CARED LESS FOR SENTIMENTS OF THE CITIZENS.
YESTERDAY... NIRBHAYA´S PARENTS WERE RIGHT THERE SITTING THE THE RAJA SABHA AND WATCHING THE MEMBERS DEBATING JUVENILE JUSTICE ACT... THEIR PRESENCE FORCED RS MEMBERS TO DISPLAY THEIR RESPONSIBILITY AND SERIOUSNESS ABOUT THE ACT BUT STILL, SOME SHAMELESS MEMBERS WERE SEEN MAKING ABSURD OBSERVATIONS AND NOT IN FAVOR OF PASSING THE BILL.
CPI-M MEMBERS WALKED OUT IN PROTEST. TMC JDU WANTED BILL TO GO TO SELECT COMMITTEE AGAIN.
BUT THE TREMENDOUS PRESSURE BUILT BY CITIZENS FROM OUTSIDE AND FROM SOCIAL MEDIA WAS SO MUCH, RAJA SABHA MEMBERS WERE FORCED TO PASS THE BILL IN UNANIMITY AND HAD NO CHOICE.
THIS I CONSIDER IS A VICTORY OF PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY WHO HAVE NOW STARTED TELLING THEIR LAW MAKERS... ENOUGH OF FOOLING...
GET DOWN TO BUSINESS OR YOU WILL FACE US ON THE STREETS AND IT WOULD MEAN DIFFICULT LIFE FOR YOU ALL.
I THINK... NIRBHAYA´S MOTHER PLAYED A BOLD ROLE IN PUTTING PRESSURE ON THE GOVERNMENT AND THE YOUTH OF THIS COUNTRY STOOD FIRMLY WITH HER.
YES... FINALLY NIRBHAYA´S MOTHER AND FATHER DID NOT GET FULL JUSTICE IS TRUE... BUT THEY FORCED TO PARLIAMENTARIANS TO BE MORE RESPONSIBLE AND PASS THE ACT WITHOUT ANY FURTHER DELAY.
OPPOSITION PARTIES GOT EXPOSED WITH THEIR POLITICS BUT CITIZENS HAVE WON.
