Reduced number of days of sitting often causes insufficient time allocation for many sensitive and worthy issues.
Controversial actions by ruling party – ordinances, redefining bills as money bills –too invoke ire of opposition.
31% of MPs in current Lok Sabha are from criminal background such leaders erodes the moral authority of the parliament.
Frequent elections motivate parties to do unjustified criticism on the floor.
Lack of subject expertise to parliamentarians resulting in delegated legislation and bureaucratization.
