On Friday, legal experts met at Punjab University’s ICSSR Complex to discuss a Bill proposed by the Union Law Commission India in association with Centre for the Study of Social Exclusion and Inclusive Policy.
The proposed Bill makes it binding on governments to provide every citizen shelter and livelihood. Law Commission member, Amarjit Singh, presented key issues of the bill. The discussion was attended by law students and professors of Punjab and Delhi Universities. The presentation evoked a widely varied reaction, with some questioning the Law Commission’s data and yet others finding fault with way the Bill approached the issue.
A section of lawyers declared that the main issue was that whatever shelter the common man managed to find for himself was forever in danger of being snatched away and the main snatcher is the government itself. Many thought that it might be possible to pass the Bill but said that after the Bill became law, they doubted whether such a law could be implemented.
