PM Modi asks BJP members to attend Parliament regularly

Enough of the trickle-down effect

With the heat and dust of campaign and government formation in the five States that saw Assembly elections now over, Prime Minister Narendra Modi issued a stern warning to BJP MPs on regular attendance in Parliament after recent incidents of lack of quorum in the Lok Sabha and missing Ministers in the Rajya Sabha.

Addressing a BJP Parliamentary Party meeting, Modi said their absenteeism caused delays in functioning of Parliament.

Modi had emphasised MPs' presence in the House in the past too.

At the same time, Modi recalled an RSS official saying that though the organisation had spread its wings, it was a pity that its members didn't have enough time to attend a shakha. He told party leaders that being representatives of the people of their constituencies, it was their job to attend the House proceedings.

The Prime Minister also shared a road map of the future activities of the party including its foundation day on April 6 and Baba Saheb Bhim Rao Ambedkar's birth anniversary on April 14. The members will be asked to join panchayat and municipal level meetings on April 6. The PM had, in the last parliamentary party meeting, asked ministers, MPs and party functionaries to hold such meetings up to booth level.
