By 2015 India has pledged to achieve its Millennium Development Goals (MDGs):
- Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger
- Achieve universal primary education
- Promote gender equality and women's empowerment by eliminating gender disparity in schools
- Reduce the child mortality rate
- Reduce the maternal mortality rate
- Combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases
- Ensure environment sustainability
- Develop global partnership for development
How successful are our MPs in working towards these goals within their constituencies? How well do they perform their role as Members of Parliament? How well do they look after their constituencies?
Think of the right parameters to assess an MP. What are the qualities they need to exhibit as people? How much time do they spend in their constituencies? What should their role be in Parliament? How aware are they about the urgent concerns facing their constituencies? Then design a Report Card as a tool that most accurately measures the performance of an MP
