Fadnavis red flags weak party legislators, MP's

After hearing self-praise about the works they have done in the last four years, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis yesterday handed over sealed envelopes containing damning critical performance evaluation reports of sitting 22 Lok Sabha Members of Parliament and 121 Assembly MLAs of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

According to a survey conducted by New Delhi-based pollster agency 'Chanakya' out of the 22 Lok Sabha MP's and more than 40 per cent sitting legislators out of total 121 are in danger of losing their seats. Addressing party legislators at party's Mumbai office in Dadar, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis warned these “weak” MLAs and MPs to work hard in the coming months or else get ready to be replaced by new faces.

Sources in the BJP disclosed Union Minister of State for Defense, Dr Subhash Bhamre, had secured just 19 per cent of the marks in the performance index. However, Bhamre denied the reports arguing that he had secured more than 50 per cent marks.

Meanwhile, sources further disclosed that the other Lok Sabha MP's, who are in the danger zone, include a daughter-in-law of a senior BJP legislator, a daughter of a late BJP stalwart and another BJP MP from Western Maharashtra.

At the meeting held at Mumbai BJP unit office 'Vasant Smruti', Fadnavis handed each of the MP's and MLAs sealed envelopes with instructions that they open it at home.

The survey conducted by the party was based on the feedback given by the voters in respect of how they viewed the performance of their elected representatives – either their MP or MLA. The questions included whether the voter was happy with the performance of the MP or MLA, would the voter like to demand a change or would they like to see them repeated in the next elections.

Based on the report card, six of the BJP Lok Sabha MP's secured 19 percent of the marks. However, in the case of 40 percent of the 121 MLAs, voters expressed their unhappiness over their performance and were against them being repeated in the 2019 assembly elections.

The MLAs and MP's were asked to be active in their respective constituencies, become more proactive in taking more initiatives, ensuring implementation of the governments welfare schemes without waiting for the party to do it for them. They were also asked to take special efforts to ensure that more voters register their names in the on-going voter registration drive that is to end on October 31.
