The Ministry of Parliamentary Affairs is the mainstay for ensuring smooth, productive and meaningful interaction between the Government and the Legislature. In order to perform this important function it acts as a sole coordination agency between the Ministries and both the Houses in the Parliament. It ensures that both the Houses perform and function in accordance with the provisions of the Constitution and the relevant rules and procedures.
Parliamentary business is of great significance. At present, the Parliament has a heterogeneous character with significant presence of all major political parties. In such a diversified environment, this Ministry’s responsibility assumes an added dimension to create a congenial atmosphere in both the Houses. In addition, Public Affairs and Grievances Wing which has been transferred to the Ministry of Parliamentary Affairs from the Prime Minister’s Office, is redressing the grievances of aggrieved persons in the country.
The Ministry of Parliamentary Affairs under the dynamic leadership of the Prime Minister is endeavoring to fulfill the mission of the present regime to bring progress, prosperity, establish rule of law, fortify foundations of democracy and protect civil liberties.
