Days after questions were raised over Sachin Tendulkar’s attendance in Rajya Sabha, the master blaster attended the proceedings of the Upper House on Wednesday. Earlier, on Tuesday Samajwadi Party MP, Naresh Agarwal had raised the issue of absentee members in the Parliament. While Tendulkar was busy attending the proceedings, Twitterati’s trolled the former Team India captain for his awful attendance record as an MP. Not just Sachin, boxer Mary Kom was also present during the proceedings but to no one’s surprise, it was Sachin who became a subject of joke for micro-bloggers. Some of the users were seen relating his abysmal attendance record to their own college attendance. “My attendance in college is same as Sachin’s in RajyaSabha.#SachiBaatYeHai.” Whereas, others were seen taking a jibe on his wild biopic promotion.(Rajyasabha) Sachin- mujhe kuch bolna hai,Speaker- apne film ke promotion ke alawa kuch bhi bol sakte ho.” Some even went on to the level of giving Tendulkar a new nickname- ‘Eid Ka Chand’.
Check out some of the tweets on Sachin Tendulkar attending the Rajya Sabha:

Notably, this was not the first time when Agarwal had raised the issue. Earlier, in March, Agarwal had said,”We have been yearning to see the presence of nominated members. They never come to the house. The entire session is over, but we haven’t seen them, be it Tendulkar or film actress Rekha or others.” Tendulkar and Bollywood star Rekha had the worst Rajya Sabha attendance record among the 12 nominated members.
