Actor and MP from Mumbai North, Govinda, is unlikely to get a ticket from the Congress in this election.
He wasn’t among the candidates interviewed by the party and he may not be even be used for election campaigns.
Govinda holds the record for the skipping the highest number of Lok Sabha meetings in the last sessions of Parliament. As a result of the actor’s truancy, his absence in Parliament, as well as his constituency, has become a rallying point for his opponents.
Latest Parliament records show that the actor has attended just 12 per cent of all the Parliament sessions in the past five years.
Govinda had had a relatively good year in 2005, attending 15 sessions out of 85. The numbers were less pleasing the following when his attendance fell to seven out of 77. 2007 saw the worst with the actor attending only two sessions out of 66.
