Change yourself or ‘parivartan’ will happen: PM Modi warns BJP MPs
New Delhi, Dec 07: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday urged the BJP parliamentarians to attend session regularly and warned them of 'parivartan' (changes) if they don't change themselves.
Sharing the details of the meeting, which was for the first time held outside Parliament complex, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi said the prime minister told party MPs that all of them should organise sports competitions in their respective constituencies.
"Please be regular in attending Parliament and meetings. Please make a change, otherwise change would happen with time," PM Modi said at the BJP parliamentary party meeting at the Ambedkar International Centre.
The poor attendance of BJP MPs has been flagged by Modi many times in the past also.
Top BJP leaders like National President, JP Nadda, Home Minister Amit Shah, Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi were present at the BJP's parliamentary party in Delhi today.
The Prime Minister's words of warning come as the BJP is facing opposition backlash over suspension of 12 Rajya Sabha MPs for their "violent behaviour" during the Monsoon Session.
The BJP is also cornered on a variety of issues, including 14 civilian deaths after the botched Army op in Nagaland's Mon district on Saturday.
