New Delhi, July 14: Words like ‘jumlajeevi’, ‘dohra charitra’, ‘baal buddhi’ and ‘Snoopgate’ have been declared ‘unparliamentary’ in both Houses – Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha.
A new booklet from the Lok Sabha secretariat lists unparliamentary words and expressions. These include ‘anarchist’, ‘Shakuni’, ‘tanashah’, ‘taanashahi’, ‘dictatorial’, ‘Jaichand’, ‘Khalistani’, ‘vinash purush’ and ‘khoon se kheti’ as unparliamentary and would be erased if they were used during debate or otherwise in both Houses.
The booklet further listed words like ‘dohra charitra’, ‘nautanki’, ‘dhindora peetna’, ‘nikamma’ and ‘behri sarkar’ as non-parliamentary expressions.
Words or phrases declared unparliamentary from time to time by the Speaker in different Legislative Bodies of the Country as well as in Commonwealth Parliaments have been compiled by the Lok Sabha Secretariat for future reference.
However, the President of the Rajya Sabha and the President of the Lok Sabha will have the final say by deleting the words and phrases.
Words and phrases that were declared unparliamentary in the Lok Sabha, Rajya Sabha and state legislatures across the country in 2021, in addition to those banned in some Commonwealth parliaments in 2020, have been compiled in booklet form.
The pamphlet indicates that some of the key words may not sound unparliamentary unless read in conjunction with the other phrases spoken during debates.
The list of expressions also includes any slander directed against the Speaker of both Houses in English or Hindi, which will be considered unparliamentary and will be removed from the records of Parliament.
The Speaker of the Rajya Sabha or the Speaker of the Lok Sabha verifies speech spoken in the House during the session and unparliamentary speech is deleted by the Speaker and does not form part of the records of Parliament.
Among some of the English words ‘bloodshed’, ‘bloody’, ‘betrayed’, ‘honted’, ‘abused’, ‘heated’, ‘criminal’ and ‘crocodile tears’ and others are listed in Lok’s secretariat booklet Sabha as non-parliamentary.
‘Anarchist‘, ‘kala din’, ‘kala bazaari’, ‘gaddar’, ‘girgit’, ‘goons’, ‘ghadiyali ansu’, ‘ahankaar’, ‘corrupt’ and ‘khareed farokht’ were also listed as unparliamentary .
