Amit Shah: Congress' priority is "politics of disruption and instability"

Amit Shah: Congress' priority is

"Their strength in the House was instead reduced from 17 to 16", BJP President Vinay Tendulkar told reporters on the sidelines of a day-long fast held at Azad Maidan on Thursday, to protest the Parliament logjam during the Budget session.

Addressing BJP MPs, PM Modi said the BJP leaders and its workers will observe the fast to "expose" those people who "throttled" democracy by stalling Parliament proceedings.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief Amit Shah from Thursday will tour northern parts of the poll-bound state of Karnataka, in a bid to canvass votes for the party in the upcoming assembly elections due next month. He urged the people to oust the "Lal Bhai" government and support the "Chalo Paltai" slogan of the BJP party.

The BJP, however, blamed the Congress-led opposition parties for disrupting Parliament's second part of the Budget Session from March 5 to April 6.

The Dalit rebel MPs have been variously accused of being shrewd and calculating, for sensing the mood of defiance and hostility among the community against the upper caste UP CM and the BJP leadership.

"The government was ready for discussion on all issues, but the opposition just didn't allow it to happen". Modi is also going to inaugurate the Defence Expo in Tamil Nadu.

While many, including Modi and home minister Rajnath Singh, kept to their work while fasting, several ministers like Prakash Javadekar, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi and Piyush Goyal, travelled to their constituencies to sit on the fast. The blame game of opposition can not hinder the pace of development works. In a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Dohrey had alleged that the Dalits and tribals across the country, especially in Uttar Pradesh, were being framed by the police in false cases after the protests, leading to growing insecurity among them.

"The Congress does not believe in democracy".

Parliament meets to discuss the policies for the country's progress but instead of showing concern for the people the Congress has excelled in disrupting it, he said.

Meanwhile, rubbishing social media messages that say that Modi will have lunch onboard during his tour programme today, the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) said that the schedule being floated was made before the fast was announced.

Congress communications in-charge Randeep Surjewala however said, "It is only a photo opportunity". Will the prime minister fast for those farmers? He said the opposition's "irresponsible" conduct caused a loss of over Rs 333 crore of public money and the ruling NDA MPs' decision to forgo their salaries was a "call of conscience".
