BJP used attendance records to assess the work of the members in different committees.

It had also issued warnings to the members to attend at least 50 percent of the meeting of the panel, failing which they would be replaced by others.

Speaking at a meeting of the BJP parliamentary party, parliamentary affairs minister Venkaiah Naidu said, “MPs were expected to work diligently in standing committees and other panels.”



Naidu also refused to entertain any explanations from the members and told them that there could be no exceptions.

The Estimates Committee has 30 Lok Sabha members, the PAC and COPU too has 22 members each.

“Every member (from Lok Sabha or Rajya Sabha), be it nominated or Independent, is a member of at least two Parliamentary committees,” a government functionary told PTI to underline the fact that a member dropped from one committee will find a place in other panel.
