New Delhi, May 12: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said the NDA government has more achievements to its credit in the last 10 months as compared to 10 years of Congress rule and asked party MPs to proudly highlight them before public on completion of one year of the government.
Addressing party MPs at a meeting of BJP Parliamentary Party, he said nothing can stop the government from initiating development in the country, as it is committed to serving humanity and taking the country to greater heights.
He said the fight is not against the Opposition but against those power-brokers who enjoyed the benefits of power and after being dejected are indulging in negative publicity of the government and party MPs should not be drawn into it. Meanwhile, the party lauded Modi's efforts towards cooperative federalism and setting in motion a strategy for inclusive development and hoped it will succeed in fulfilling promises made to the people.
As it prepares to highlight government's achievements during the anniversary celebrations from May 26 to 31, the BJP Parliamentary Party, in a unanimous resolution passed at its meeting chaired by Modi, backed initiatives to ensure social security for poor and vulnerable sections of society and provide transparent and accountable governance.
"The BJP Parliamentary Party has commended Prime Minister Narendra Modi for arresting the drift in governance by infusing the much desired sense of purpose and for improvising the governance architecture through cooperative federalism, for providing transparent and accountable governance and for enhancing the country's standing and image among the international community," the resolution moved by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said.
"Prime Minister Narendra Modi told party MPs that during the celebrations on completion of one year of NDA government, MPs should highlight the initiatives taken by the government in each of their constituencies," Union minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said after the meeting.
Union ministers, MPs and party functionaries will go to various parts of the country to tell people about the welfare measures taken for underprivileged sections and farmers as part of a week-long 'Jan Kalyan Parv' from May 26 to May 31.
Parliamentary Affairs Minister M Venkaiah Naidu said while BJP was pursuing "politics of development" some sections of the political class are keen to promote the "politics of poverty". "For their own reasons, they want the people of our country to remain poor. We will not let this happen," he said.
