monsoon session of Parliament began on July 21 there have been puns galore “Washout amidst storms” “Raining protests” “Much thunder” “Well overflowing” “All down the drain” are some of the headlines (traditional and social media) that have appeared on the repeated adjournments and stalling of Parliament in the current session NDTV claimed that a washout of the monsoon session would waste Rs 35 crore of taxpayer money Times Now has claimed the figure is Rs 260 crore Share This Article Related Article “No discussions without resignations” is the Congress’s mantra Its member of Parliament Shashi Tharoor doesn’t agree with this strategy and warned that it could incur the wrath of the voters But instead it was he who earned the ire of Congress president Sonia Gandhi Prime Minister Narendra Modi has cautioned that the world is watching India’s ugly stalemate in Parliament and that it does not bode well for the country’s image To boot some urbane politicians are trying to come up with smart 140-character prescriptions such as “no subsidised lunch for MPs” “no salary for non-working MPs” etc Amid this furore over a stalled House and reminders about India’s global reputation being tarnished as well as veiled threats on increasing the price of biryani for MPs it is pertinent to ask if parliamentary performance and conduct matter electorally for an MP In other words do Indian voters reward or punish their elected representatives for good or bad parliamentary performance PRS Legislative Research a 10-year-old Delhi-based non-profit has meticulously compiled and made easily available data on MPs’ performance in Parliament in terms of attendance participation in debates and questions asked Using data from PRS for the 14th (2004-09) and the 15th (2009-14) Lok Sabhas we analysed MPs’ parliamentary performance vis-à-vis their re-election campaigns across two general elections (2009 and 2014) We computed a simple cumulative “parliamentary activity index” giving twice the weight to attendance as to participation in debates which is often a party diktat or asking questions We restricted our analysis to the 12 largest states that account for 440 (81 per cent) of Lok Sabha members We were able to get parliamentary activity data for a total of 809 MPs — 400 in the 14th Lok Sabha and 409 in the 15th Lok Sabha Of these 809 MPs 567 (70 per cent) faced re-election as a sitting MP in the 2009 or the 2014 election or in both Did a good parliamentary track record attract more voters or ensure a higher vote-share for these MPs or vice versa According to this analysis there is absolutely no relationship between an MP’s performance in Parliament and her popularity with voters That is when presented with the choice of rewarding or punishing an MP for her parliamentary performance more than 500 million voters across two elections did not seem to care A scatter plot examining the relationship between parliamentary record and swing in vote-share reveals no significant relationship Interestingly the only marginal impact we found was that MPs who did not recontest had a lower parliamentary activity index than those who did stand for election again While it would be premature to conclude just on this basis that political parties hand out electoral tickets to candidates based on their performance in Parliament there does seem to be a relationship between poor performance in the House and not recontesting elections But when a sitting MP recontests her parliamentary performance seems to matter very little for the eventual outcome or even just for her vote-share The table summarises both the average and median “Parliament activity index” for MPs who recontested and for those who did not as well as the overall index scores for all MPs MPs who won re-election did not have a significantly better parliamentary track record than the average MP while those who lost did not have lower-than-average activity levels This is true for both the 14th and 15th Lok Sabhas and the subsequent elections in 2009 and 2014 Thus contrary to Tharoor’s warnings to his party there is no evidence to claim parliamentary behaviour is a consideration for voters — something that is perhaps obvious to most elected politicians This is not an attempt to intellectualise the licence to stall Parliament This is merely to clarify the incentives faced by politicians If every MP is cognisant of the fact that absence in Parliament is not going to hinder her electoral chances and if “electability” is the primary criterion of handing tickets to candidates by political parties what is the real penalty for an MP not discharging her duties in Parliament An increase in prices in the Parliament canteen or taking away some of the MPs’ perks may save a few crores but they are certainly not going to get our MPs racing to the House Parliamentary performance must become an election issue and a primary re-election issue in every constituency In India’s notoriously multi-cornered elections where the margin between a win and a loss is very often a few thousand votes the potential to swing votes marginally based on parliamentary performance could serve as a powerful incentive for MPs to engage and be productive in Parliament The media has a pivotal role to play in educating voters about good and bad performers in the House Apart from the attempts to elicit anger among voters with figures on the loss of taxpayer money making people aware of their MPs’ parliamentary performance is a responsibility of our fourth estate The

More Related NewsBy César Luis Menotti When you lose a final like Argentina lost to Chile at the Copa America Centenario there is plenty of tough ruthless analysis all of which has nothing to do with football Allow me to say that Argentina can return home with their pride unscathed They fought hard and gave it everything there is no doubt about that And yet I still need to say a couple of things very clearly: Chile deserved to win the Copa America and right now as a group they play better than Argentina They have clearer concepts although the final was indeed a tight game Lionel Messi has to enjoy his football with Argentina in order to score goals AP I think there are a few misconceptions in Argentina about the things that prevent Lionel Messi from performing as well as he could Every player has obligations within a team and I have the feeling that no one has explained to Messi that his responsibility with Argentina is not to score goals Let’s not get confused His responsibility as with Barcelona is to make the team play well which is a different thing This confusion means that whenever he gets the ball Messi runs and dribbles over 20 metres to try to score a goal He struggles a lot and feels the obligation to win the game but his responsibility should be different: to help the team play better In order to do that however he needs to have other players ahead of the ball With three defensive midfielders and two wing backs who hardly generate play at all the full responsibility for goals rests with him and Gonzalo Higuain And by this I do not mean to say it is all manager Gerardo Martino’s fault because I do not know what he tells players or how they train I say this with a view to helping because I had a similar problem when I coached Diego Maradona at Barcelona He wanted to do everything he could to help me with his fantastic quality as a footballer But one day I got him and Bernd Schuster together and I told them that the only thing I needed was for them to help me get the team to play better that goals would eventually come on their own In this spirit I think what we need to do is make Messi aware of the fact that he does not play with the national team to score the winning goal Reaching so many finals and not winning any of them generates a very special atmosphere that much is true But he has to make the effort to have a little more fun and be a bit happier on the pitch I guess his decision to leave the national team appears to pre-empt this analysis but in my opinion his announcement is not worth much right now I do not think Messi will stop playing with the national team At a time of so much sadness and loneliness we should not take his comments seriously He expressed his feelings but I think it is just a momentary thing and will pass It would be unfair for me not to mention what Chile are doing You do not get where they are by chance and they are definitely one of the best teams in international football There is a long period of work training conviction and team-building that is really worth highlighting They are a role model for solidarity a very good side that defends an idea in each and every instance of play And while they may not have Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo they have Arturo Vidal who has grown more than most players in world football Whenever Chile need to solve a problem Vidal is always there wherever it happens to be on the pitch We need to say this clearly: Chile deserve everything they have won Written by KAMALDEEP SINGH BRAR | Amritsar | Published: May 20 2016 3:33 am Related News AROUND 76 per

109 lakh students only 24 per cent have cleared the exam However results have not been declared yet” Despite the rise in students’ number taking the exam there has been no corresponding increase in the number of religious teachers SGPC has only 35 religious teachers for many years A religious teacher is supposed to take at least one class every week to train students of a specific school Some
