This chapter discusses the negative impact of Union Communications Minister Sukh Ram's involvement in the Telecom scandal on India's parliamentary democracy. The government proposed to have an examination of the relevant files by party leaders, conduct a debate in the two houses, and decide on the mode of inquiry thereafter. But these were rejected by the Opposition and demanded a prior commitment to the establishment of a joint parliamentary committee. This disagreement between the government and the Opposition prevented parliament from functioning.

Keywords:   Sukh Ram, Union Communications Minister, Telecom scandal, parliamentary democracy, India, joint parliamentary committee
