New Delhi: Addressing BJP Parliamentary Party meeting, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday accused the opposition of spreading lies against his government due to its increasing “frustration” over electoral losses. This was the first BJP Parliamentary Party meeting at its new headquarters at the Deendayal Upadhyay Marg here.
“Modi told the MPs that the party is in power so that we can take the country to new heights, and asked them to work on the ground,” Prakash Javadekar said after the meeting.
The prime minister asked the MPs to use technology to present facts and reach out to people as the opposition was spreading lies against the government out of frustration.
Party chief Amit Shah in his speech blamed the opposition for the impasse in Parliament and asked the MPs to hold press conferences in the next three days in their parliamentary constituencies to highlight the matter.
With the party gearing up for Lok Sabha polls next year, Shah asked MPs to work to strengthen the booth-level organisation in their constituencies, asserting that the organisation’s work at the booth level, along with BJP’s ideology and Modi’s leadership, has been a key reason for its success.
Javadekar said that the party will celebrate the period between 14 April and 5 May as “Gram Swaraj Abhiyaan”, and Rural Development Minister Narendra Singh Tomar gave a presentation on it.
14 April, the birth anniversary of Dalit icon Bhim Rao Ambedkar, will be celebrated as Social Justice Day. It will be followed by Swachh Bharat Diwas on 18 April, Ujjawala Diwas on 20 April, Panchayati Raj Diwas on 24 April and Swasth Bharat Diwas on 30 April. Kisan Kalyan Diwas will be observed on 2 May and Aajevika Kaushal Diwas on 5 May.
Baluni said that Jitendra Singh gave a presentation to the MPs on developing the 115 most backward districts in the country. Singh said that the prime minister will visit the best performing district.
