PM Modi chaired a Parliamentary meeting BJP parliamentary party on Tuesday and asked for the details of all the Union ministers who did not attend Parliament despite being asked to be present for the session.
During the weekly meeting of the BJP parliamentary party, the PM asked for the names of ministers whose names were there on the roster for Parliament duty but did not come. This is the second time in the month that PM Modi has called the BJP members and highlighted the problem of MPs skipping sittings.
Prime Minister Modi has already made it clear that the BJP was keeping a close look at the attendance of the party’s members of Parliament, who had been skipping sittings or its debates. “I rank everyone according to all this and then decide the ministers,’’ Modi said at the BJP’s parliamentary party meeting on July 2.
Bharatiya Janata Party later issued a three-line whip asking its lawmakers to be present in the House. The Prime minister also asked MPs on Tuesday to take up one innovative work in their constituency.
