Abhay Patil will introduce two Private member’s bills today in the Legislative assembly one for establishing an IT park and another for establishing a Historical and Archaeological Park which will depict the history and culture of India and will have a miniature of all the best monuments.
Abhay Patil has identified government open land of 745 acres along Pune-Bengaluru National Highway from Survey No 1304 to 1349 near Kanbargi for establishing IT Park. This was first taken into consideration for the Suvarna Soudha from the Military but SVS was shifted to Halaga and this land now is in the name of the State Govt.
317-acre government open land at Mache village to set up replicas of people who made invaluable contributions towards nation-building, including freedom fighters and scientists, in Mache village near Belagavi.
Earlier as well the same bills were rejected.
What is a private member’s Bill?
Individual MLA’s may introduce private member’s Bill to draw the government’s attention to what they might see as issues requiring legislative intervention.
An MLA who is not a minister is a private member and while both private members and ministers take part in the lawmaking process, Bills introduced by private members are referred to as private member’s Bills and those introduced by ministers are called government Bills.
Private member’s bill’s purpose is to draw the government’s attention to what individual MLAs see as issues and gaps in the existing legal framework, which require legislative intervention.
While government Bills can be introduced and discussed on any day, private member’s Bills can be introduced and discussed only on Thursdays.
