Thumbs down In Rajya Sabha, Govt gets POTO egg on its face

Already wracked by increasing differences within, the NDA Government suffered a setback tonight when its Bill to ratify the controversial Prevention of Terrorism Ordinance (POTO) was defeated in the Rajya Sabha by 15 votes—with 98 voting in its favour and 113 against.

And though the TDP, NCP, DMK and the AIADMK pitched in for the government, members cutting across party lines expressed their apprehensions about POTO’s misuse. Illustrative of their position was TDP member K M Saifullah: ‘‘I am sure it (POTO) will used against the minority and political enemies...And I do not think it is required, but my leader and party chief Chandrababu Naidu has promised support, therefore I am standing in support of the Bill.’

Thumbs up POTO approved

Lawmakers in India approved an anti-terrorism bill Tuesday after a day of heated debate in a highly unusual joint session of Parliament, only the third since the country's independence.

The government said the legislation is crucial after the Sept. 11 attacks in the United States and a Dec. 13 attack on the Indian Parliament.

"We cannot score a decisive victory against terrorism unless a special law of this kind is enacted," interior minister Lal Krishna Advani said as he presented the bill.

Opponents denounced the bill as an draconian curtailment of civil rights and voiced fears the Hindu nationalist-led government would use the law selectively against Muslims and political rivals.


The Prevention of Terrorism bill allows police to detain suspects for questioning for three months without bringing charges against them and an additional three months with approval from a special court. The bill also allows anyone suspected of giving money, shelter, transportation or other support to terrorists to be tried on terrorism charges.
