    Such a frightening scenario hardly drew any attention / discussion by the members in the just concluded budget session. Some state Governments failed to declare drought and instead had continued to underplay the reality. It took the SC to crack the whip on the Centre and State Governments to give this issue the due attention it deserves. In the midst of all this, a senior member of the Centre spoke of how the judiciary is destroying the legislature step by step and brick by brick – this though was in a different context. The conscience of our lawmakers continue to be questionable.
