New Delhi 24th June 2020

Mr. Arjun Ram Meghwal, Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs, observed that recognition and performance review of Parliamentarians by the civil
society helps strengthen democracy, during the presentation of the list of MPs nominated for the 11th edition of the Sansad Ratna Awards 2020. When 'We the people' elect the Parliamentarians and legislators, they have the moral responsibility to monitor the performance of the elected representatives, said the Minister, who is the Chairman of the Jury Committee of Sansad Ratna Awards.  

Mr. N. K. Premachandran MP and Mr. Shrirang Appa Barne MP are the other Jury Members.  All the three Jury Members have been outstanding  Parliamentarians  and recipients of the Sansad Ratna Awards in the previous Lok Sabha.

He himself launched the first Awards function in May 2010.  The awardees are selected by a Jury Committee of eminent Parliamentarians, observing  absolute transparency based on the performance parameters provided by the Lok Sabha Secretariat and PRS India.

suggestions at the appropriate time to achieve this feat. 

On behalf of the Agriculture Committee Members and stakeholders, we are elated to receive this prestigious Sansad Ratna Award”.

Mr Bhartruhari Mahtab, accepting the honour of Sansad Maha Ratna Award said, “Recognising the
performance of the Members of Parliament by the Civil Society is highly commendable in this time when cynicism is ruling the roost in political life and there is all round pessimism relating to politics.  The Sansad Maha Ratna Award is a unique endeavour, not only recognising the genuine work of Members of Parliament but also to attract the youths of this age towards public life.  This also encourages MPs to work for the people of this country. This definitely gives a boost and also reminds us that there are some in this society who are taking note of our actions inside the
Parliament. I feel humbled on being conferred the Sansad Maha Ratna, which is presented once in five years, and also thank Prime Point Foundation and the
Sansad Ratna Award Committee who have taken into account the performance”.
