Jaipur. The echo of the famous ‘Nathi ka Bada’ statement of Minister of State for Education Govind Singh Dotasara was also heard in the Rajasthan Legislative Assembly. During the discussion on ‘Rajasthan Tourism Business Facilitation and Regulation Amendment Bill 2021’ in the assembly on Monday, Deputy Leader of Opposition Rajendra Rathore took a dig at the Minister of State for Education, raising the issue of Nathi ka Bada. Rathod said that it should be declared a tourist destination. On this issue, Rathod and Dotasara took a jibe at each other. Dotasara said that Nathi Ka Bada is already a tourist destination in Rajasthan, you should go and see it. Seeing the increasing debate between the two, Chairman Rajendra Pareek interrupted and said that he would not allow this House to become ‘Nathi Ka Bada’.
The special thing is that not only Rajendra Rathod but a total of 8 MLAs mentioned Nathi’s enclosure in different ways on this issue. BJP MLAs Ashok Lahoti, Vasudev Devnani, Madan Dilawar, Gyanchand Parakh and Biharilal also mentioned Nathi’s enclosure in their address. A few days ago, Education Minister Govind Singh Dotasara had told the teachers who came with the demand to get transferred that what has been considered my house as Nathi’s enclosure. This video of Dotasara became fiercely viral on social media.
Opposition MLAs raised questions
On the other hand, during the discussion on the bill, many opposition MLAs gave their opinion on it. While the opposition MLAs raised questions on the tourism policy of the state, they said that the intention of the bill seems to be to harass the beggars. BJP MLA Vasudev Devnani said that the government is not serious about tourism. The government does not have a full-time tourism minister. First a law should be brought for the rehabilitation of beggars.
Bill passed by voice vote
This bill has been passed by voice vote after discussion in the assembly. Now the repetition of offense by the lapses will come under the category of cognizable and non-bailable offence. Replying to the discussion in the House, Govind Singh Dotasara said that the need to bring amendments was needed to protect the tourists from the laps. When this law was passed in the year 2010, it did not mention whether the offense was cognizable or non-bailable. Now in the amended law, repetition of offense has been considered as non-bailable and cognizable offence. Dotasara clarified that this is not a law to harass beggars. Unless it is a cognizable offence, FIR cannot be registered. We all want more and more tourists to come to Rajasthan.
