I will therefore, request the hon. Home Minister to take note of this particular aspect not only to assure the House of the situation in this regard but also to give directions that no discrimination whatsoever is practised and justice is done. Now, Sir, I come to another important point.

MR. CHAIRMAN : Shri Banatwalla, there are four Members more to speak.

SHRI G.M. BANATWALLA : Is that my responsibility, Sir?

MR. CHAIRMAN: It is not your responsibility. I am seeking your cooperation. I have to accommodate others also.

SHRI G.M. BANATWALLA : Please do accommodate them also, Sir.

Who is going to assess the level of security that is necessary? That is also an important aspect. Hon. Member, Shri Mani Shankar Aiyar had drawn attention to this particular aspect. I would say that in order that there may be no apprehensions and there is no political abuse in this particular question, we have to come clear in deciding as to the authority that decides on the level of security that is necessary. There should be a Committee including the Home Minister, the Leader of Opposition and such other personalities, which should have a final say in the matter so that the doubts and suspicions that the entire matter is looked at from the political point of view, come to rest.

With these few words, I thank you.

SHRI PRAVIN RASHTRAPAL (PATAN): Mr. Chairman, Sir, I support the Bill and I associate with the views expressed by my senior colleagues Shri Mani Shankar Aiyar and Shri Banatwalla. I do not want to say much on the Bill because many senior speakers and well-versed Members have spoken on it.

As we say, this august House is the House of the People. This is not the House of leaders only. I, therefore, request the hon. Home Minister to take care that inconvenience caused to the common people is removed while implementing the Bill. When VIPs like the Prime Minister, for whom I have the highest respect, move from place to place, a lot of inconvenience is caused to the common people. In Delhi, it is managed well and not much inconvenience is caused to the public nowadays. However when they go outside, to cities like Ahmedabad, Mumbai, etc., roads are blocked for traffic for hours together. Rehearsals are also conducted on the previous day of the visit of the VIP when hundreds of policemen are made to stand on the road for the whole day. That creates problems for the students who have to sit for examinations, unemployed people who have to appear for competitive examinations and sick people who have to go to hospitals. At such times, not only vehicles are not allowed to ply on the roads but even pedestrians are not allowed to move during the period starting one hour before the visit of the VIP. This may kindly be stopped.

As far as political assassinations are concerned, whether it is of Mahatma Gandhi, of Madam Indira Gandhi, or of Shri Rajiv Gandhi, -incidentally we have lost three leaders in our country -- the main reason behind them was religious fanaticism. I would request this august House to do some introspection and find out why the young boys or certain groups are involving themselves in such acts. I am of the considered opinion that there are a few problems in the country. If they are solved, a part of the threat perception for, at least, certain people will be removed and the security requirement will also be reduced to that extent. There are issues in the country which require solution at an early date. As far as terrorists are concerned, the Government should take proper steps to restrict their activities.

My main request is that the inconvenience caused to the common people may be looked into while implementing the Act.

SHRI MANI SHANKAR AIYAR : I would just like to seek one clarification. Does these remarks apply to the SPG as well? Because, in the instant case, Shrimati Priyanka Gandhi Vadra wished to stay in her own personal house and it was the SPG which refused to give her permission to stay in her own house and insisted that she must stay in Government accommodation to be able to provide SPG security. So, I would just seek the clarification whether your remarks apply also to the SPG category.

SHRI L.K. ADVANI: I have not applied my mind to the SPG beneficiaries. But, basically what I am saying apply to the political activists in general. So, it is in that context, I am saying so.
