Sushma Swaraj, the leader of opposition in the Lok Sabha gave a lecture on the “Role of Opposition in Democracy” on the 2nd of August, 2013 at Campus Law Centre, University of Delhi. She was greeted by a long applause and series of whistles by the gathering after which she began talking about the functioning of a democratic government and how the ruling party and the opposition party together strive to create a better society.

Swaraj also talked about how it is the responsibility of the opposition to create sufficient checks and balances in the system and keep the ruling party on its feet. She moved on to highlight the government’s mistakes in tackling cases of high sensitivity such as the Bhopal Gas Tragedy, tackling corruption, etc. In light of the apparent divide in BJP as far as the position of Modi is concerned, Swaraj’s lecture comes across as a political tool to paint a very content and united picture of the insides of the party politics.

The audience, despite the big name did not comprise of a large number of people. Sushma Swaraj ended by saying that all that BJP has done till now and will continue doing, is only and only in pursuit of greater good and nothing in pursuit of self interest.

Here is the video of the entire speech:

[email protected];I think my life would be much better off if I’d make as much effort in reading books as much as I do in buying them. A bibliophile through and through, I possess a keen interest in the history of art and museums and I believe that walking with oneself is the best form of adventure. On a more random (a.k.a siddhi) note, my dream destination is the Rann of Kuttchh, because I find it oddly displaced in time, an entirely different story, and that’s how I truly want to be.
