Finance Minister Arun Jaitley today said parliamentary system is best suited to Indian condition as it provides a platform for airing divergent views. Speaking at ‘Outlook Speakout Awards’ function here, Jaitley said as a parliamentarian, he tried to focus on issues rather than personalities.

“Parliament still remains in India one of the greatest institutions which suits this country,” he said, adding it has representatives of different political ideologies, regions and cultural background. Of late the character of parliament, he said, “is changing because our polity itself is changing”.

“There was a time when Indian parliament had essentially serious debates … but of late you will have your usual bit of noise, disturbances, but one of the greatest flexibility of Indian Parliament is after noise, it starts functioning…,” the finance minister said. Jaitley was also given Outlook magazine’s ‘Best Parliamentarian Award’ by former President Pranab Mukherjee.

        Yes,the imposition of Aadhaar by force,haste in GST implementation,taking orders from IMF,G 20,USA,CFR ,destroying Free markets,attack Gold for a strong US Dollar,ONLY caring for Stock Markets and selling PSU shares at very high prices,etc shows India is an OLIGARCHY.All these by a person NOT Elected by the people,but selected by the Elites,like M M Singh,was.And lo and behold.He holds NOT one but TWO portfolios,as a reward for Aadhaar,GST etc.No intra-party Democracy,at all.No data on demonetization,from RBI which does not care even for the Parliament and the SC of India.What a great Democrarcy!NGOs seem to be, freely interfering in India s affairs. At present India is ruled from outside the nation. Decisions are being taken in Washington,New York,Better than cash Alliance,G20 ,etc dia lost her Sovereignty in 2009 to G 20.Of course,Yes,Democracy will be good for India,but at present it is not one,but a Dictatorship,by a few aided by outside forces,like the USA,G 20.etc.
