"Time is free, but it’s priceless. You can’t own it, but you can use it. You can’t keep it, but you can spend it. Once you’ve lost it you can never get it back" - Harvey Mackay
This quote expressed the views of the Philosopher - how important time is! The same has been experienced by the members of the Parliament. Currently, they are facing trouble while attending sessions and they know the value of time because they have to manage all tasks. Moreover, they have the responsibility of the nation as a whole. The Monsoon session of the Indian Parliament was started on 17th September 2020 and was planned to end on 1st October 2020.
But it has been observed that nearly 30 lawmakers are tested positive for Covid-19 which is considered to be a danger signal for everyone. During Covid-19 everyone is taking precautionary measures but still the coronavirus has been widely spread all over the world. So, taking precautionary measures while monsoon session is a difficult task but still, everyone is trying their best. Speaker of the Rajya sabha Mr. M. Venkaiah Naidu has also shown his concern and they are trying to discuss and approve important bills as early as possible so that they can end the session soon.
Different precautionary measures which were followed are - two different shifts to maintain social distancing, seating arrangements, regularly sanitizing floors, and other equipment. Due to the increase in no. of infected members of coronavirus, the business advisory committee on 20 September 2020 decided to end the session on 23rd September 2020 as members of parliament and members of the legislative assembly are also demanding to end the session for the safety of members. But, the monsoon session is still in force because of the necessity as there are many pending bills to be discussed and many more works are still pending.
Every individual whether MLAs, MPs, common men, students, or any other businessmen are affected due to Covid-19. "Time flies over us, but leaves its shadow behind." -Nathaniel Hawthorne This expressed the need to understand the consequences before taking action. So, Members of Parliament have to take effective and efficient steps so that the consequences of their actions won't be proven dangerous for people at large. Although some alternatives can be taken, they can even organize online Sessions to ensure the health of other members of the Parliament. But it's up to the committee to decide that suits the best.
