CHANDIGARH: The Association for Democratic Reforms (ADR), an election watchdog, has given an overall performance rating of 3.47 to Pawan Kumar Bansal, keeping him in below average group of MPs in a nation-wide survey.

Even overall rating given to Chandigarh by the ADR is 3.47, showing a poor performance in terms of governance.

One of the primary reasons why Bansal scored so low is Railgate, which the ADR took into account while measuring his performance.

In 'better employment opportunities' segment, Bansal has been given a score of 3.39, under 'drinking water' head, he has scored 3.56 points, and in 'better roads, better public transport and better electricity supply' sections, he has got 3.77, 3.60 and 3.37 points, respectively.

In another five segments of 'better hospitals/primary healthcare, better schools, better law and order/policing, empowerment of women and security of women,' ADR has given him 3.50, 3.67, 3.42, 3.41 and 3.39, respectively.

In the list of states and UTs, Chandigarh has been ranked 27th.

The rating of Chandigarh and MP's performance are similar.

What is Association for Democratic Reforms?

The Association for Democratic Reforms (ADR) was established in 1999 by a group of professors from the Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Ahmedabad. In 1999, a public interest litigation (PIL) was filed by them with Delhi High Court, seeking the disclosure of criminal, financial and educational background of candidates contesting elections. Based on this, the Supreme Court in 2002, and subsequently in 2003, made it mandatory for all candidates contesting elections to disclose criminal, financial and educational background prior to the polls by filing an affidavit with the Election Commission.
