Death of hundreds of children in eastern Uttar Pradesh due to Japanese Encephalitis and the need for power supply to tubewells in drought-hit Bundelkhand were among other issues raised during the Zero Hour.

A demand was also made for amending the Representation of Peoples’ Act to allow punitive action against political parties indulging in violence.

Manish Tewari (Cong) condemned the attack on offices of a news channel in Maharashtra by members of a political party on November 20.

He said the Representation of Peoples’ Act should be suitably amended so that action could be taken against political parties which perpetrate such violence.

The Election Commission should have the power to act against such parties,he said.
