    I don't understand why these celebrities are sponsored by political parties to the Rajya Sabha, where there is no election per se to join the RS, but is based on party strength in the State Assembly, when these celebrities are just not interested in any social work or legislative business that is expected of them.

    These celebrities are equally callous and join only to ensure there moment in the limelight and then vanish to make their money.

    Another thing, Sachin having got the Bharat Ratna, should not do TV commercials or plug products of which one has no guarantee of the veracity of the plug. It does not behove the status of a person who has got the highest civil honour of the country; more so if the product is a hoax and does not fulfil the claims made.

    People like Javed Akhtar and some others have participated actively in Parliament, but then we have high profile cases like Lata Mangeshkar, Sachin and Rekha who have no value for this nomination. they should resign immediately from their seat so that somebody more deserving can be nominated by the Govt.

    The endorsement issue is a good point. There should be some sort of a formal policy on that. It will involve an in depth legal review because most of the times high profile celebrities have long standing product endorsement contracts. However a reasonable counter argument is that you cannot completely cut off a person's income (even if they're already rich) by bestowing an award upon them.

    The counter point to the endorsement issue that you raise, is valid.

    However, there is a 'dignity' of the award, that in my opinion, has to be upheld by the awarded.

    Imagine, a fishmonger is awarded the Bharat Ratna, for whatever be the reason, sitting on a pavement selling fish and bargaining loudly in the usual fishmonger style with cuss words that make the ears turn red. Exaggerated example, but just making a point.

    Or imagine a Saurya Chakra medal winner for COIN operations, canvassing for the Maoist cause and justifying the massacre of security men by the Maoists.

    These people are just PARASITE on Indian Tax money.These people have no leadership capacity.

    They have no role to play in Parliament and also filthy rich, they SHOULD be having some self respect and resign immediately.

    Also there should be a law about why these people are selected at all and what's the practical use of selecting these bunch of FREELOADERS.

    Ok just saw Mr Sachin telling "My absence in Delhi is discussed too much. Media wants opinion in everything.I think Media should be focused on it's job".

    Why don't he do HIS JOB which a RS member has do to? Why blaming Media???

    Again he says "My brother was having surgery so I was not able to attend".

    Now it's just a week which needed this.Why dont he answer his 2 years of absence of all his family members were having surgery? How come he has time to attend charity dinner in England,product endorsement etc etc on regular basis? What happened to his famil members surgery?

    Such SHAMEFUL response was NOT expected from a guy who was even considered as "Cricket God".

    Mr Sachin if you have any shame left then resign you FREELOADER filthy rich man.Stop being a parasite on Indian tax payer when you are sitting on thousand of crores. :dude:

    Also where is Rekha? She has enough time to receive various film awards in 7 coatings of makeup.

    Ok the latest news is that Rekha comes to attend RS session. Not sure how many sessions would she attend but at least she came and has some shame left.

    Whereas the so called "Cricket God" Sachin asked for leaves for the entire session and it got approved as well.

    Sachin Tendulkar under attack in Rajya Sabha for absence, granted leave - Economic Times
    Shameless and LIAR Sachin the parasite on Indian Taxpayer. :tsk:

    Always Felt Sachin as Over rated. Most of the times played for records. Hardly won matches for India, apart from Sharjah 98 and to top it was a terrible speaker, hardly took a stand on anything and too selfish. In a country devoid of Real heroes he fit in the role perfectly for largely ignorant masses.

    Now, that the MPs cutting across Partylines have criticised these celebrity MPs or 'trophy MPs', their making use of the MP status as another trophy to dangle, has been exposed.

    I wonder why these clots are even considered to be MPs.

    As it is the Parliament has become a circus, so addling these celebrity clowns would become a total joke.

    Sachin has used his celebrity status to many advantages as it is including the infamous car duty avoidance, which a normal person would have to pay.

    And to imagine this man is a Bharat Ratna. He is only a Political Ratna.
