Mah CM along with party MPs MLAs observe fast in Mumbai

Following the instructions from PM, hundreds of BJP leaders observed fast at Moti Bagh in the capital.

"Parliament could not function due to the stand taken by Rahul Gandhi". The fast went on from 10 am to 5 pm, but the programme ended at four o'clock in the evening. Party MLAs in Jaipur also participated in the fast but did not stay for full time.

This comes after the BJP shared a picture of Delhi Congress leaders Ajay Maken, Haroon Yusuf and Arvinder Singh Lovely, allegedly having a big meal before the Congress began their fast.

Pune (Maharashtra), April 12 (IANS): There were red faces in the BJP after two of its legislators were found snacking on sandwiches and chips as the party leaders and cadres led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi observed a day's fast across India on Thursday. "But I will continue my work", he said. He further said what BJP is doing today is only to protect the democracy in the country because Congress has murdered this spirit and democratic principles. He was joined by the party's state unit chief B.S. Yeddyurappa, MPs Rajeev Chandrasekhar and Pralhad Joshi and the party's state leader, Jagadish Shettar, among others. He said the Budget session was lost to the uproar created by the Congress and other Opposition parties without any rhyme or reason.

The BJP refused to answer in Parliament how the jewellers accused in Rs 13,540-crore Punjab National Bank (PNB) fraud case - Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi - were allowed to flee the country and on the other bank frauds, Surjewala said.

"The Congress can not save democracy in the country as it has no internal democracy", Shah said.

"The Modi government wants to make laws for the people but the Congress isn't letting us do so by continuously disrupting the Parliament sessions", said Union Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javadekar.

Israel's Labor Party suspends ties with UK's embattled Corbyn
Clearly this proves that the Jewish Labour Movement's work is more important than ever, and we're not going anywhere". In an open letter published after the march, Corbyn apologized for "pockets" of anti-Semitism inside of Labour.

Modi will now be the second prime minister after Atal Bihari Vajpayee to observe a fast while in office.

Terming the Siddaramaiah government as the most corrupt in the country, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief said the ruling party had become an ATM (any time money) for its high command in Delhi. Respect for democracy and for public sentiments is not there in the dictionary of the party, ? he said.

The fast also marks another set of programmes of the BJP where the party leaders have been asked to propagate various initiatives of the Modi government among the people. "If somebody eats three hours before a fast, BJP finds it objectionable, but it is okay for them if they eat during the fast".
