BJP MPs to observe fast to protest impasse in Parliament: PM Modi

After a huge uproar across nation by Dalits against SC judgement that in turn caused huge damage to the ruling BJP, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who woke up that the anti-Dalit tag would be a death blow to BJP in 2019 elections, has asked BJP MPs to spend two nights in Dallit villages, areas on the eve of Ambedkar's birthday on April 14.

Briefing reporters on the BJP parliamentary party meeting, Union minister Ananth Kumar quoted the Prime Minister as saying that the Congress was "throttling" democracy and "abusing" people's mandate. As democrats, we think that would be bad news for India and urge the Congress to think hard before rushing in where angels fear to tread.

Modi also thanked the countrymen for their "unwavering faith" in the BJP. While the Opposition highlighted issues such as the farm crisis, unemployment and atrocities against Dalits, the BJP accused the Congress of disrupting proceedings.

Taking a dig at PM Modi's 2014 poll campaign around "Chai pe charcha" and his monthly radio broadcast "Mann ki Baat, ' the Congress spokesperson asked the Prime Minister to engage in a "charcha" (discussion) with his own party's Dalit MPs to listen to their "Mann ki Baat".

During the interaction, PM Modi will listen to the ideas of the party workers, and also discuss the schemes related to welfare of poor people.

Calling upon party lawmakers and ministers expose such parties, he said such a disruption during a prime minister's speech was unprecedented. Both Houses were adjourned sine die, capping a month of relentless disruptions and stated to be the least productive since 2000 with almost 250 working hours being wasted. It is not because we made a mistake. In his letter, he credits the reservation policy for his achievements and reminds Modi that despite several efforts from him and other MP's from the Dalit community, not a single work for the direct betterment of Dalits was undertaken by the Modi Government. "It is the strength of the BJP that is affecting our opponents", he said.
