Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi languishes near the bottom of the India Today Group ranking of India's best and worst MPs. Among all Congress MPs, Rahul has the fifth worst report card and is placed 17th from the bottom in the overall MP rankings. These rankings have been compiled by the India Today Group in partnership with two NGOs -- the Satark Nagrik Sangathan (SNS) and the Association for Democratic Reforms (ADR).  

The MP rankings are the first attempt in the country to measure the performance of India's Members of Parliament across multiple performance parameters and are meant to serve as a report card of India's parliamentarians just ahead of the 2014 general elections.

All through the five years of the 15th Lok Sabha, Rahul Gandhi did not ask a single question in Parliament. He attended only 42.61 per cent of the sittings of the Lok Sabha. His attendance record in the standing committees of which he is a member is an abysmal 13.64 per cent. Rahul has spent only 53.68 per cent of the MPLADS funds allocated to him. Even the respondents who were polled by ADR in Amethi have a very poor impression of the development work that has been done in the constituency. The Amethi MP has a perception rating of only 5.58 out of 10
