New Delhi, June 26: Just being an MP is not enough in Modi's government, one has to be a responsible one too. The BJP is organising a 2-day orientation programme for new MPs staring from June 28 in Surajkund in Haryana.

A list of do's and dont's have been made and would be distributed among them. The list primarily deals with how the ministers should behave when in parliament and that they should not encourage personal life in duty.

Interestingly, the document starts by saying that whenever an MP is in Delhi, his presence should be felt. According to the India Today, some of the other dos and don'ts include:

1. A roadmap for the constituency should be made by each of the MPs and they should concentrate on that and not say anything unnecessary to the media. The roadmap should discuss the plans for the development of the constituency.

2. "No MP should come with personal issues or issues related to transfer/posting of any officials anywhere."

3. "Younger MPs should send their issues in writing to senior party leaders and ministers who will send it to the PMO after scrutiny."

4. "MPs should also be vigilant from possible sting operations and only comment on what is necessary."

5. Avoid misusing LTC for relatives and friends. Their tickets should not be charged to the government.

6. Should have a social media presence.

In fact, there would be training sessions on social media where the MPs would be taught the importance of social media in public and how they can reach out to the public. This would be followed by a short exercise to see how they are performing.

Plans are also underway to form a committee of new MPs who would be supervising the new MPs on the agenda and oversee that they take the list seriously.

The BJP may hold these sessions across the country in the BJP-ruled states. One has already been done on June 21 in Khajuraho, Madhya Pradesh.
