The Parliamentarians of India now have the whole nation watching their conduct on live television. Lok Sabha TV broadcasts live Parliamentary debate during the Parliamentary session and at other times has interviews with MPs, political parties, analysis programmes etc. This is the first 24-hour channel dedicated to the lower house of the Indian Parliament, the Lok Sabha and it is supposed to be the first of its kind.
This has a very fun aspect of it. You can either see serious debates in Parliament or you can see how money is going down the drain.
What is the expectation? People will see the MPs wasting their money on certain issues and when they return to their constituency, question them. I am yet to see the MP from my region in Parliament or maybe, its because I don’t watch LS TV that often.
My nine year old brother who still does not understand Parliamentary democracy thinks that its a huge classroom with a teacher. He asks me why the teacher does not check their homework. I just don’t know what to answer.
FYI: There’s also a Rajya Sabha TV. But LS TV is a 24-hour channel.
