Inside Delhi Assembly

S K Sharma (Author)
Synopsis Inside Delhi Assembly is the first book of its kind on the Delhi Legislative Assembly - its creation, evolution, functioning and efficacy as a representative institution of India's capital. The study conducted is indeed comprehensive and exhaustive and encompassing the whole gamut of the affairs of the institution right from its inception in 1993 till date. The study also describes the kind of experiments that were earlier made from time to time to provide a democratic set up to Delhi.

Since its constitution, election to the Delhi Legislative Assembly have been held four times viz in 1993, 1998, 2003 and 2008. The book describes Assembly-wise, the kind of men and women who had the privilege to be its members, their socio economic background including their age profile, occupation, educational qualifications and so on. A mere fleeing glance at the Contents Page and chapter-headings are indicative of the wide range of issues discussed and debated. Some of the interesting chapters incorporated in the book include "Need for grant of statehood to Delhi", "Why Delhi cannot be granted Statehood?" How to become an effective Legislator?" "Problems faced by new MLAs", "Transaction of Business Rules - What is" and so on. These are the issues Delhite would be concerned with. This would provide food for thought to the lay citizens, politicians and policy makers alike.

Under the heading "Landmark Assembly events showcased", the author who was it Secretary during Assembly's formative years, has unfolded a number of mysteries and behind-the-scene events and incidents hitherto unknown even to most of the MLAs. These disclosures would certainly be found informative educative and even entertaining by all the category of readers.
