Jain Muni invited to MP Assembly

Posted on: August 3, 2010

Madhya Pradesh Assembly Speaker Ishwardas Rohani, much criticised for conducting the House proceedings arbitrarily and often in violation of the rules, has set a new precedent by inviting a religious leader to preach to the members on the Assembly premises. Sant Tarun Sagar, the Jain Muni, did some plain talking when he told the people’s representatives led by Shivraj Singh Chauhan that 80 per cent of the officers were corrupt while 90 per cent of them were misusing their position.
However, the Muni also made some controversial observations; like, he suggested an amendment in the Constitution to allow only the graduates to enter Parliament or Assembly. Looking towards the chief minister, the Jain Muni said, “you have Vidhan Sabha and I have Dharma Sabha, let the two merge and form Samvidhan Sabha. If we join hands, it will be good for the people of the State”.
The Jain Muni’s controversial observations apart, the demands are now being made that the Speaker should similarly invite the religious leaders of the Hindus, Muslims and Christians also to preach to the members of the Assembly.

Value of propaganda

Adolf Hitler believed in the use of propaganda as an integral element to seizing and holding on to political power. His maxim was 'the bigger the lie, the more easily it will be believed, provided it is repeated vigorously and often enough'. (Sean Murphy in his book 'Letting the Side Down')
