The second meeting in the ongoing Monsoon Session of Parliament began with an address by Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi who briefed the MPs on the upcoming bills and legislatures.
The BJP parliamentary party meeting began on Tuesday morning at 9:30am in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP national president JP Nadda, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Rajya Sabha leader of the House Piyush Goyal and other party leaders and MPs.
The second meeting in the ongoing Monsoon Session of Parliament began with an address by Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi who briefed the MPs on the upcoming bills and legislatures in the coming days despite the fact that there is hardly any discussion in Parliament so far due to the impasse in both Houses over the Pegasus row and the farm laws.
Nadda, who also spoke in the meeting, asked party MPs to make sure that central government schemes reach the public, especially in times of Covid. He also asked them to make regular visits to the vaccination centres so that vaccination hesitancy can be removed and India can meet its target of vaccinating everybody by the end of this year. Nadda also asked party MPs to go to the poll-bound states and tell them how the government has worked over the last seven years for ‘Sab Ka Saath, Sab Ka Vikas, Sab Ka Vishwas’.
Meanwhile, PM Modi spoke in the meeting about the Azadi Amrit Mshotsav launched by the Union government to mark the 75 years of India’s Independence. PM Modi instructed all MPs to participate in the programmes along with public and make sure that they hold programmes in their respective constituencies, saying 75 years shouldn’t be reduced to a mere government programme. He also asked to allocate 75 hours to be spent in villages.
