“ LAXMAN REKHA” FOR THE LAWMAKERS, MODI WARNS EVERY MINISTER
Correspondent – Delhi Bureau
New Delhi, December 16:
“ Don’t cross the Laxman Rekha!” were the words of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the lawmakers of BJP. He strictly said that no comments or statements should be made on any issue while addressing any public rally or attending any press conference.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has reportedly told BJP lawmakers that controversial statements made by some of them are hurting the party and government’s image. He talked tough at the BJP’s parliamentary party meeting held every Tuesday when Parliament is in session, also emphasising that development work undertaken by the party’s lawmakers must be “visible and not just on paper.”
The PM is reportedly displeased at comments like the one made by party MP Sakshi Maharaj, who had last week described Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse as a “patriot”. The party is also upset with its MP Yogi Adityanath, who have continued to make public statements backing religious conversions and even announcing more conversion programmes.
At that meeting, the Prime Minister had also instructed the party’s MPs from both houses to reach on time for the parliamentary party meeting. But 26 of them reached after the PM, among those who turned up late were ministers like Nitin Gadkari, Santosh Gangwar, Rao Indrajeet Singh and Mahesh Sharma as per sources.
