Check the attendance sheet of Lok Sabha MPs

Newspatrolling: As per the attendance data provided by PRS Legislative, a non-profit organization that tracks functioning of Parliament, only five Lok Sabha MPs out of 545 total members have registered 100 percent attendance during the last three years. Around 25 percent MPs have recorded more than 90% attendance whereas the national average comes out at 80 percent. The count of MPs who recorded less than 50 percent attendance is 22. Congress President Sonia Gandhi recorded 59 percent attendance whereas her son Rahul Gandhi recorded 54 percent attendance. However, Rahul Gandhi fared better in terms of participation in debates, clocking his participation in 11 debates, as compared to just 5 by Sonia Gandhi.

It may be recalled that the Prime Minister and some ministers are exempt from signing the attendance register. The same is applicable for the leader of the opposition. One of the best performances was registered by Bhairon Prasad Mishra, the MP from Banda, Uttar Pradesh, who clocked 100 percent attendance and participated in 1,468 debates and discussions. Senior Congress leaders Veerappa Moily and Mallikarjun Kharge clocked 91 and 92 per cent attendance respectively. The young guns in Congress, Jyotiraditya Scindia and Rajeev Satav, clocked 80 and 81 percent attendance respectively. The other MPs who recorded 100 percent attendance include BJD MP from Jagatsinghpur Kulmani Samal and BJP MPs Gopal Shetty (North Mumbai-Maharashtra), Kirit Solanki (Ahmedabad West) and Ramesh Chander Kaushik (Sonipat-Haryana).
