P.C. Mohan's attendance card reads fairly consistently, with over 70% attendance for 10 of the 15 sessions. However, in the Budget Sessions of 2013 and 2010, that percentage reduced significantly to 28% and 53% respectively. Mohan has been part of only five debates and that number is significantly less than the national and state average.
With respect to questions asked, Mohan comes pretty close to the national average, but is significantly lower than that of the number of questions asked by other Karnataka MPs. Like any other MP, he has asked questions which are of relevance to the development of his constituency and Karnataka, but also questions of a general nature. An analysis of his performance as an MP along key parameters including questions asked will be presented separately.
He also did not introduce any private member bill during his tenure as an MP.
MP in news
While the job of an MP is to raise issues at the national level, MPs also get involved with local issues. With respect to Mohan, here are some local issues that he has involved himself in.
Mandur Garbage crisis: One of the significant reasons why Mohan was in the news recently was when he decided to get involved in solving the garbage crisis that engulfed Bangalore in 2013. In January 2013, he was part of an official entourage which met with Mandur residents who were opposed to BBMP dumping Bangalore's garbage in that village. Later on that year in August 2013, a news reportstated that the residents of Mandur went to meet Mohan and D B Chandre Gowda (sitting Bangalore MPs) regarding the issue.
Bangalore Metro meeting: Mohan was also part of a meeting between elected officials, BMRCL officials and citizens. This was a public meeting organised by Ananth Kumar to facilitate a conversation between BMRCL and citizens in whose areas the metro was coming up. While Ananth Kumar asked the residents to approach him with complaints if any regarding Metro, what Mohan told the residents in this regard hasn't been reported by the media.
Balija Gathering: The Balija community which has a population of around 45 lakhs is one of the most socially and economically backward communities in the society. During a Balija gathering, Mohan said that social integration and being part of the mainstream was the only way by which the community can be empowered.
