About 72 percent Delhi MLAs are underperforming, 33 percent MLAs have hardly participated in the deliberations and three MLAs have never raised any issue in the assembly, says a report by Praja foundation.

The report further says that 20 out of 58 MLAs ranked (in this report card) have criminal records, the worrying part is that 14 (including 4 MLAs who had earlier FIRs registered against them) of them have got this record after coming to power.

It also highlights the irrelevant or insignificant issues raised by MLAs when the real issues were left unaddressed. In fact the report points out that the quality of issues raised by Mumbai MLAs is better than those raised by Delhi MLAs.

“When the performance in the state assembly is compared with delivery of services we find a significant gap. While  there  were  150,885  complaints  registered  for  water  supply,  there  were  only  33  issues  raised  by  MLAs.  Or  in  the  case  of  ‘drainage  chokes,  blockages  &  cleaning  and  overflowing  manholes’ – where there were 19,327 citizen complaints, only 5 issues were raised by our city’s MLAs in 2015. Or the most surprising of all, in the case of  ‘Mosquito  Nuisance  &  Fogging’  –  where  there  were  10,102  complaints,  there were no issues raised by any MLA throughout last year,” the report says.

The report gives a complete grading to legislators in terms of attendance in the assembly, the number and quality of issues raised by them and the public ‘perception’ recorded through a survey of 29,950 residents.

Of the 70 MLAs in Delhi, 58 were ranked while the others including the chief minister, cabinet ministers and speaker were not ranked as they do not ask questions or raise issues.
