NEW DEL HI: Samajwadi Party MP Naresh Agarwal on Thursday said Rajya Sabha members like cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar and actress Rekha should resign if they were not interested in attending the house.

He was pointing to the continued absence of the nominated Rajya Sabha members. 

"We have been yearning to see the presence of the nominated members. They never come to the house. The entire session is over but we haven't seen them, be he Tendulkar or film actress Rekha or the others," said Agarwal in the Rajya Sabha. 

"If they are not coming, this means they have no interest in attending (Parliament). If they don't have interest, then they should resign," he added. 

Both Rekha and Tendulkar have earlier too faced criticisms for their dismal attendance in the house. 

Besides Rekha and Tendulkar, the 12 nominated members to the Upper House include Olympian boxer M.C. Mary Kom, journalist Swapan Dasgupta and businesswoman Anu Aga.
