Jagan Moves to Abolish Council – What Are the Recent Precedents?

Andhra Pradesh Assembly - Jagan
Andhra Pradesh Cabinet has approved the abolition of the Council. The Assembly will now discuss the proposal and move a resolution. The resolution will be sent to the Central Government. The resolution will now require the approval of both the houses of the Indian Parliament, followed by the final approval of Indian President.

That will mean that it is all up to the Central Government’s prerogative from here. The Proposals to set up the council in Rajasthan and Assam were pending since 2012 and 2013. Rajasthan State Assembly on 18 April 2012 passed a resolution to establish an upper house in the state.

The Rajasthan Legislative Council Bill, 2013 was introduced in Rajya Sabha in 2013 and has been referred to the Standing Committee on Law and Justice. The report has been given in December the same year and there is no progress after that. The Assam Legislative Council Bill, 2013 was introduced in Rajya Sabha in 2013 and it was referred to the Standing Committee.

The Report also came in 2014 but there is no progress from then. A Parliamentary panel in 2013 recommended evolving a national policy for the creation and abolition of Legislative Councils in states so that the second chamber does not depend on the “whims and fancy” of any newly-elected government. Amid all this, there are doubts if the Council in Andhra Pradesh will be abolished immediately.
