Brahampura had been a non-performer and never took his work seriously as membership: Bibi Jagir Kaur
Lambasting outgoing MP Ranjit Singh Brahmpura from Khadoor Sahib, the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) candidate from the same constituency for ensuing Lok Sabha polls Bibi Jagir Kaur said that Brahampura had been a non-performer and never took his work seriously as membership.
In a statement issued here today, Bibi Jagir Kaur urged the electorate of the border constituency to give a befitting reply to the candidate sponsored by Brahampura’s newly floated party christened SAD (Taksali).
The party had sent Brahmpura from its pocket borough to Lok Sabha but he miserably failed to deliver and never contributed to the debates in the parliament, she stated.
As per the records of the parliament, Brahampura participated for six times during his five year tenure while on the average each MP participated in 45.8 debates. The last time he participated in debate was on July 26, 2016. Earlier, he had spoken in parliament was thrice in 2015 and twice in 2014.
Another important parameter of performance is tested during the question hour. Brahmpura had asked only 30 questions during his tenure. It is astonishing that on average each member of 16th Lok Sabha had put 267 questions on average while Brahmpura was contented with just 30 questions which suggests how seriously he was taking up his job.
His last question was responded on August 11,2017 and since then he has not even made any queries or questions from any ministry. None of his questions was selected as starred question which allow supplementary questions.
Brahmpura opened his mouth for last time in parliament as back as on July 26, 2016 and since then he had been a passive spectator. His attendance itself was just 67 percent, far below the national average of 80 percent of all Lok Sabha MPs.
Tabling of bills (legislative business) is job of the government but the MPs too can move private bills which are usually debated upon though these are often talked out. Brahampura never took any initiative in this account though he himself has been cabinet minister during 1997-2002 and 2007-2012 in the state government earlier.
Making a comparative analysis of the performance of Punjab MPs, an English daily( Indian Express) had graded his performance as “zero’ during the first year of the present Lok Sabha. Despite this sad commentary on his performance, Brahampura refused to pull up socks and remained dull drab drain on state exchequer as his performance worsened by each session. EOM
