LOK SABHA

The Lok Sabha or the House of People is the highest forum of debate in the country. There is no limitation on its power of discussion. The Lok Sabha represents the divergent views of members from different regional, social, economic, religious groups of different parts of the country. The house of people is entrusted with the task of making legislations on matters included in Union or Concurrent List. With a current tally of 545 members, Lok Sabha ensures accountability of the executives at various stages. Lok Sabha is a council where the members intensively indulge in reasoned discussion and argument. Each member of Lok Sabha participates and deliberates on various issues, before the formulation of several laws and policies.

AGENDA

The Ayodhya Dispute - Towards Efforts for a Peaceful Solution

The Ayodhya dispute has been featured in most Lok Sabha manifesto released by most of the parties since 1996. Starting from 1991 when the slogan 'Mandir Wahin Banega' was offered to masses, the BJP first mentioned Ram Mandir in its manifesto just before the General Elections of 1996. Since then the issue has been transformed from a socio-religious issue to a sensitive political issue.

The Ayodhya dispute is a political, historical and socio-religious debate in India, centred on a plot of land in the city of Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh. The issues revolve around access to a site traditionally regarded among Hindus to be the birthplace of the Hindu deity Rama, the history and location of the Babri Masjid at the site, and whether a previous Hindu temple was demolished or modified to create the mosque. The Babri Masjid was destroyed during a political rally which turned into a riot on 6 December 1992.

At BMVB MUN, we are looking forward towards a peaceful solution of this prolonged dispute. The delegates are to deliberate upon the issue and move forward to resolve the problem of Ayodhya.
