MLA puts bill on Facebook, seeks response

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: For the first time, digital ayes and nos are going to play a role in the presentation of a private bill in Kerala assembly.

The bill, being moved by MLA VT Balram, is aimed at the formation of an authority to protect the nurses and paramedical staff working in private hospitals in the state.

Balram, handpicked by Rahul Gandhi to contest from Thrithala, has posted his draft bill on Facebook, inviting all to respond to the initiative. The draft was also posted on a Google group in which he is an active member.

As expected, Balram got 144 likes and 88 comments on the website. Thrilled by the response, Balram said he hoped to incorporate all valuable suggestions when the bill is finally presented during the next session in May. Balram ruled out the chance for privilege issues haunting his unconventional move. "I have taken the permission from the Speaker's office," he said.
