Master blaster attends Upper House proceedings after criticism on his absence
New Delhi: Cricket legend and Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar attended the Rajya Sabha on Thursday. Though Tendulkar attended the proceedings, he was passive at best, and didn’t ask any questions either. Boxer Mary Kom was also present in the Upper House of the Parliament.
This development comes two days after Samajwadi Party MP Naresh Agarwal had questioned absence of nominated members from Rajya Sabha. Agarwal had asked Tendulkar and actress Rekha to resign from the Rajya Sabha.
Speaking in the Upper House of Parliament, he said: “They should resign if they are not interested in Parliament They are hardly present in Parliament.”
This was not the first time that Agarwal has raised the issue.
In March, Agarwal said, “We have been yearning to see the presence of nominated members. They never come to the house. The entire session is over, but we haven’t seen them, be it Tendulkar or film actress Rekha or others.
Tendulkar and Rekha were the worst performers in attendance in the Rajya Sabha among the 12 nominated members.
