Protest vs Protest In Parliament: BJP Lawmakers To Fast, Congress Boycotts Tea

PM Modi Invokes Poor Background After Dalit Protests, Says Opposition Getting 'Increasingly Violent' Parliament washout: BJP to go on hunger strike on April 12

Dubbing the Union government as "anti-Dalit", the Congress today said its criticism by BJPs Dalits MPs has exposed it and asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to break his "silence" and respond to their concerns. The BJP did not focus on casteism or dynasty, he said.The BJP had been treated as an "untouchable" party by others when it was founded in 1980 but it has become strong due to people's faith in it."People have taken us to this level and now we have to live for them", he said.

Addressing karyakartas or party workers via video conference, Prime Minister Modi gave a clarion call to the BJP Karyakartas to keep working for the country and appealed all to never say or do anything that lowers India's political discourse.

The Parliament witnessed a complete washout of the second half of the Budget Session that ended on Friday.

Reflecting on his humble origins, he said, "They are unable to digest that a poor person born into a backward family is serving as the nation's Prime Minister". Sources said he also told the MPs that Opposition members nearly surrounded him during his reply to the Motion of Thanks on the President's Address to Parliament, and such a disruption during a Prime Minister's speech was unprecedented.

His remarks at an interaction with party leaders on its 38th foundation day came against the backdrop of violent protests during a "Bharat bandh" this week, which had left at least 11 people dead. 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. The reason is not that we have made any mistake.




He said that it was utterly shameful that BJP president was using abusive language against the Opposition parties to hide their failures in many promises unfulfilled by the BJP government.

BJP MP from West Delhi Parvesh Verma has written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking to change the date for celebration of Children's Day from November 14 to December 26, which is martyrdom day for Guru Gobind Singh's four sons, "Chaar Sahibzaade". 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.

Mallikarjun Kharge, leader of the Congress in Lok Sabha, alleged that the government and its allies were "orchestrating" disruptions and blaming the Congress for them.

BJP MPs from the Dalit community were up in arms against the Supreme Court order diluting the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes Prevention of Atrocities Act and had put pressure on the government to file a review petition against it.
