New Delhi: A two-day “Abhyas Varg” (training session) for BJP MPs will be held on August 3 and 4, where Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party chief Amit Shah, who is also the Union home minister, will be among the senior leaders who will brief the ruling party’s legislators on how to become a good parliamentarian. The session, sources said, could see senior BJP leaders, including Mr Modi, sharing tips with MPs, especially first-time MPs, on various proceedings of the House, including how questions should be asked, both starred and unstarred, how issues should be raised keeping in mind the limited time allotment and also how to remain connected with the people of their respective constituencies. It could be mentioned here that Mr Modi often advises party MPs on how to conduct themselves and on the “dos and don’ts” to be followed as an MP and as a representative of the ruling party, in the weekly parliamentary party meetings held on Tuesdays.
Mr Modi has often asked party MPs to attend sessions regularly, to do homework before seeking replies from ministers or participating in debates and discussions but above all to remain connected 24x7 with their constituencies.
The BJP on Sunday directed all its MPs to ensure they attend the “Abhyas Varg”, with the its parliamentary office sending a message to MPs requesting them to be present in the national capital on August 3 and 4. The BJP’s working president, Mr J.P. Nadda, will also attend the training programme.
“The BJP members of Parliament are requested to be present in New Delhi on August 3, Saturday, and August 4, Sunday. There will be a two-day ‘Abhyas Varg’ in New Delhi,” the message said.
