Yes, it happened. Sachin Tendulkar, the god of Indian cricket, who is also a Rajya Sabha MP, attended a session in the Parliament on August 3. Reportedly, it was only recently that Naresh Agarwal, a Samajwadi Party MP, questioned the absence of Rajya Sabha members. While Tendulkar attended the proceedings, people on the Internet decided to go to town, joking about his abysmal attendance record as an MP. Boxer Mary Kom was also present in the House, but no prizes for guessing, the legendary cricketer was at the receiving end of all the jokes on Twitter.

While many took jibes on his frenzied promotions of his biopic which was recently released, others nicknamed him the obvious — ‘Eid Ka Chand’. And many related his track record of attending Rajya Sabha sessions to their attendance in college. “In 2017, India achieved 2 things for which it was waiting for many years —Implementing GST & this sight,” wrote one Twitter user, sharing a photo of Tendulkar in attendance. Needless to say, it was a laugh riot on the micro-blogging site.

Check out some of the reactions his turn up at the House resulted in on Twitter.

 

On a serious note, while questioning the absence of celebrity Rajya Sabha members from the House, Agarwal also suggested they be disqualified from their memebership. “Sachin Tendulkar and Rekha should resign if they are not interested in Parliament,” Agarwal had said.

        Waste of public money on these nominated guys. In fact the supposed to be elders house has become a shelter for disgruntled,defeated party candidates. It should be changed to limit the number to 3/5 from each state directly elected. Jaihind

              Persons like Sachin are born one in a century and so is their attendance in the Parliament.

                  Seems twitterati have forgotten the real Sachin, there was a time when whole nation came to standstill when he was batting. We tend to forget our heroes so quickly.
