I think time has come to do away with the Rajya Sabha itself. Lok Sabha is enough.
We do not need Sachin and Relha but Congress needs them more than anybody else.
Now that they have nominated them, let them put Sachin in charge of sports and Rekha may be in Social Welfare to work against dowries, female foeticide etc.
Doing away with Rajya Sabha will save too much money for the nation.
I am deviating from the main question but here I remember Lalooji's remarks that no free houses should be given to President and Vice-President after their retirement because we are a poor nation where so many do not have even an umbrella for shelter.
Instead of wasting of precious money on show pieces, only one house should be retained and Rajya Sabha should be wound up for good.

Make a joke of Parliamentary institutions, which anyway provide enough mirth should we be in the habit of laughing at things that should make us cry?
Yes, Sachin is a great cricketer and Rekha may have been a great actress, and yes, people from diverse walks of life have every right to become nominated members of the Rajya Sabha (though former Lok Sabha secretary general Subhash Kashyap says nominations can only be made under the categories art, literature, science and social, under Article 80 of the Constitution).
I don't care what field nominees have excelled in, they should still be eligible for nomination. But shouldn't they have shown some interest i ...more
