Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi selected for 'Sansad Ratna Award 2014'
Wednesday December 25, 2013 2:25 AM, News Network

President of the All India Majlis-e-Itehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) and a member of Parliament from Hyderabad Asaduddin Owaisi has been selected for 'Sansad Ratna award 2014' for his overall best performance in 15th Lok Sabha.

Owaisi's name is being finalized along with seven other Lok Sabha members with a total tally of above 1000 (Debates +private bills + Questions) during the 5 years period. The finalists for awards have been made as per the data released by PRS India on 10th December 2013 on the overall performance of 15th Lok Sabha, TCN News reported.

The seven Lok Sabha members are, Anandrao Adsul (Shiv Sena Maharashtra), Hansraj G Ahir (BJP MP Maharashtra), S S Ramasubbu (Congress Tamil Nadu), Arjun Ram Meghwal (BJP Rajasthan), Gajanan Dharmshi Babar (Shiv Sena Maharashtra), Pradeep Majhi (Congress Orissa), Shivaji Adhalrao Patil (Shiv Sena Maharashtra).

Special 'Sansad Mahila Ratna Award' for women Lok Sabha members and 'Sansad Yuva Ratna Award' for young members are also going to be conferred.

Asaduddin Owaisi scored an impressive 1080 questions in parliament - far ahead with national average of 292. Although his 70% attendance was 6% less than the average, he overturned it by participating in 40 debates, 4 points ahead of national average.

Asaduddin, who is representing Hyderabad for the second consecutive term, has emerged on top among Muslim Lok Sabha members and also over-scored his colleagues from home state Andhra Pradesh.

Owaisi, who is vocal on Muslim issues from Kashmir to Assam, has gained wide respect nationally among Indian Muslims for his bold speeches in the Lok Sabha. His community consciousness is recognized in the parliament where major Muslim MP's are seen bound with the party lines.

Recently Rural Development Minister Jairam Ramesh was caught in surprise by Owaisi's 'googly' when he raised the issue of wakf properties during the tabling of the land acquisition bill in parliament, forcing Jairam to admit his ministry's mistake and to recognize wakf as a serious matter yet to be deal in the bill.
