New Delhi: Former cricketer Sachin Tendulkar and actress Rekha came under attack on Thursday for their continued absence from Parliament, PTI reports.

NCP said such people should never have been nominated to the august house.

“I like him very much as a cricketer and I really like Rekha as an actress but their conduct as nominated members of Rajya Sabha is despicable, to say the least. By their behaviour and continued absence, they have insulted Parliament and Indian Constitution. Such people should have never been nominated to this august house. I pity those MPs who get themselves clicked with Rekha and Sachin Tendulkar,” NCP leader D P Tripathi said.

Some other members, when asked about Tendulkar’s continued absence, said the cricketing icon should contribute more.
