EDITORIAL

Dear readers,

Sachin Tendulkar is undoubtedly the best batsman to have ever played international cricket, And now, he is also a Member of Parliament having been nominated by the President in exercise of the authority conferred upon her by Artical 80 of the Constitution. But the questions is weather Tendulkar would be as effective a parliamentarian as the batsman he has always been.

Questions about the constitutionality of his nomination are being asked, but apart from the constitutionality of his nomination, which is no minor issue by itself, there are other practical aspects that should have been paid better attention to before the decision to send him to Rajya Sabha was sealed. And the foremost among them is whether he can devote the required time and energy to the process of law making. He should not be expectged to, and cannot stop playing the game he most loves-and is most loved for-playing. It is very hard to see as to what purpose is served by making him a Rajya Sabha member.

The most Significant question that Tendulkar's nomination brought to the fore is whether presidential nominees are capable of playing the role the constitution makers envisaged for them. And the issue can no longer be ignored.

(Manish Arora)
