In a democratic system like India, there cannot be discrimination between the rich and the poor while distributing the benefits of globalisation among the people, Public Service Commission chairman K.S. Radhakrishnan has said.

He was inaugurating a seminar on ‘Role of Parliament in enacting business laws in the globalised world.' The seminar was organised by the Institute of Parliamentary Affairs and Government Arts College, Thiruvananthapuram.

Globalisation focusses on centralisation of authority and power naturally goes to the corporate sector run by the upper strata of society that aims at maximum profit. This should be prevented and the right to get food, shelter, clothing, health facilities, education, and social security should be ensured by Parliament for all sections of society by enacting appropriate laws, he said.

The philosophy to be followed is the welfare and well-being of each and every individual under the control and supervision of the government, he said.

The seminar is being attended by more than 150 academics from across the country, a press note issued here said.
