Report Card of Rajya Sabha: Top performer again from Andhra

17 Jul

By TwoCircles.net,

Whether it is Lok Sabha or Rajya Sabha, Andhra Pradesh rules the roost. The Muslim Members of Parliament from the South India state lead others from the community when it comes to performance on the floor of the House. While Asaduddin Owaisi has led Lok Sabha, Mohammad Ali Khan from the state is top scorer in the Rajya Sabha during the Budget Session 2010 that ran from 22 February to 07 May.

In the 32-day-long session, 61-year-old Mohammad Ali Khan asked 90 questions, just 10 short of 100 – the mark Owaisi, Lok Sabha MP from Hyderabad, crossed in the same session on the floor of the Lower House.

Khan is closely followed by rather younger Kamal Akhtar of Samajwadi Party. The 38-year-old Akhtar from Uttar Pradesh put 89 questions before the House. The third position again goes to Andhra Pradesh – Syed Azeez Pasha, 64, of Communist Party of India had 84 questions in his kitty.

There are 28 Muslim Members in the Rajya Sabha – the Upper House or House of Elders of Indian Parliament. Let’s tally the performance of only 26 MPs – as K Rahman Khan and Ghulam Nabi Azad, both from Congress, are Deputy Chairman of Rajya Sabha and Union Minister respectively.

Of 26, eight Muslim MPs had nothing to ask in Rajya Sabha during the budget session. Two are from Congress and one each from Muslim League, Janta Dal (United), BSP, RJD, RLD and National Conference. Regarded as good orator in the community, Maulana Mahmood Madani, leader of Jamiat Ulema-I-Hind and MP of RLD (Rashtriya Lok Dal) is also among the non-performers.

It is interesting to note that most of the zero or low performers are those who remained present on all 32 days of the session while top three performers could not register 100% attendance – Mohd Ali Khan (31 days), Kamal Akhtar (27 days), Syed Azeez Pasha (26 days).

There were seven MPs who were present in the House on all 32 days but most of them performed poorly — Rashid Alvi of Congress asked just 2 questions, A A Jinnah of DMK 1 question, Mohammed Amin of CPI-M and Ahmad Saeed Malihabadi (Independent) 6 questions each and Jabir Hussain of RJD zero question. Moinul Hassan of CPI-M, however, was an exception with 51 questions in 32 days.
