MPs score 85% attendance in Lok Sabha

At a time when MPs are not seen to take their legislative business seriously – the last session was an exception – the younger MPs seem to be slowly making their mark and impact in the Lok Sabha.

Cutting across party lines, young members have scored higher on many fronts, especially attendance which was higher for them than the overall average.

Meenakshi Natrajan, the Congress MP from Mandsaur in Madhya Pradesh, has attended parliament for a whopping 85 percent of sittings since June 2009. The average attendance of all members is around 77 percent.
