PM Narendra Modi to present 4-year report card to nation

PM Narendra Modi to present 4-year report card to nation

All BJP lawmakers will participate in the fast, which includes members of PM Modi's council of ministers.

Without naming any political party, Modi said there are people who don't want any improvement in the condition of the poor as they feel it would become hard to mislead financially weaker sections if the government succeeds in its efforts to uplift the poor.

The PM will go about his work as usual but not have any food during the day, said media reports. They killed democracy & we will observe fast to bring their crime in front of world.

BJP president Amit Shah, who has been advised against fasting owing to his diabetes will hold a two-hour sit-in at Hubli in poll-bound Karnataka on Thursday.

A day ahead of his fast, Prime Minister Narendra Modi came down heavily on the Opposition parties accusing them of killing democracy by not allowing Parliament to function even for a day. "But here, I would like to breach the protocol and introduce Parameswaran Iyer to all", the prime minister said at an event here. While Home Minister Rajnath Singh will fast in Lucknow, Roads and Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari will fast in Nagpur. Rahul Gandhi had been on fast for quite a short span of time, in protest of the alleged unfairness of the government against the dalit community in relation to the SC/ST act.




Modi and BJP's move is a protest over disruptions during the budget sessions in the Parliament by the opposition parties, especially Congress.

But the PM will not disturb his daily official routine; he will continue meeting people and officials and clearing files as scheduled, sources said. Tourism Minister KJ Alphons will observe the fast in Kerala.

The BJP MPs will observe the fast on 12 April in their respective constituencies.

Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman told reporters in Chennai that she would also fast to protest the disruption of Parliament by the opposition during the just-concluded Budget Session. "From the streets to Parliament, roadblocks are being created in the government's work", Modi said.
