"People should know that those sent by them to Parliament as their representatives are working to obstructing the government's development works instead of working in their interests", Shah, who is in Karnataka today where he joined his party's protest against the Congress, said in a blog. The CPI contingent included its State assistant secretary JV Satyanarayana Murthy, and leaders AJ Stalin and Vimala. The BJP didn't allow the parliament, the temple of democracy, to function when they were in the opposition and neither are they allowing it to function now when they are in power.
Even before matters turned worse, police interened and separated the warring groups. Prime Minister ji, it's not the time to observe fast, in view of your failures. The party leader said the Lok Sabha bypoll debacle of Gorakhpur and Phulpur also figured in the meeting.
Former chief minister and Maharashtra Congress president Ashok Chavan said that the "drama of fasting will not work anymore" as the people are no longer interested in false promises made by the government. He assured that the BJP government would nurture the cultural heritage and tribal values of the state and take every effort to increase employment. Modi left Delhi around 8.30 am and inaugurated the Defence Expo at Thiruvidanthai in Tamil Nadu.
The BJP President however also asked Rajbhar to ensure that his legislators also toed the "coalition dharma" as two of his four ML's were under cloud for their likely cross-voting for SP candidates in the Rajya Sabha biennial elections last month.
"Grants/donations/contributions of Rs 997.12 crore declared by BJP formed 96.41%of the total income of the party during 2016-17". He said at press conference, "Prime Minister, do you want to give the message of "Betiyaan chuppao" or Beti Bachao'?"
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg
Mark Zuckerberg appeared in front of United States senators on Tuesday and at times looked like he'd rather be anywhere else. By the close of Wednesday's hearing, Zuckerberg had spent roughly 10 out of the previous 24 hours testifying before Congress.
The Congress had tried to preempt the BJP event by announcing that its members would observe a fast on April 9 to promote communal harmony in the country.
The day-long protest at Azad Maidan saw several present and past BJP MLAs joining the MPs. Instead of holding a discussion within the house, it has taken up the task of hampering the work. "Good wishes for your fake fast", he added.
He said the government was ready to discuss all issues including the multi-thousand crore Punjab National Bank fraud and special status demand for Andhra Pradesh but it was the Congress that used the smaller parties to disrupt the proceedings.
Shah will participate in "Musti Dhanya Sangrah Abhiyan" at noon, in Abbigeri village of Gadag district.
