  • BJP MPs protest against Congress-PTI

"The meeting with the Prime Minister only underscored that at the heart of our friendship with India are the values that we share: a commitment to freedom, democracy, and the rule of law", the Congressman said.

Protesting near Mahatma Gandhi's statue in Parliament complex, Union ministers blamed the Congress for disrupting proceedings in both the Houses on a day when the washed out second leg of the Budget Session came to an end.

Thoubal district also observed its 38th foundation day where Education Minister Th Radheshyam hoisted the party flag at the district party office.

"He told them to pick at least one village with over 50 percent population of SCs".




Reflecting on his humble origins, he said, "They are unable to digest that a poor person born into a backward family is serving as the nation's Prime Minister". He added: "They can not imagine that when we got the opportunity to elect a President on our own strength, we elected a person belonging to the Dalit community". All BJP MPs will observe a day-long fast on to protest the opposition's conduct in Parliament, Modi said. "They can not imagine that when we got the opportunity to elect a Deputy Speaker, we selected Suraj Bhan, who belonged to the Dalit community and later Karia Munda, who is a tribal leader". "However the real face of the party has now been exposed and the BJP should now realise that the time to do politics by resorting to 'jumlas" is over, 'Mr Gehlot said. Sometimes, it also takes a violent turn. It is not because we made a mistake. "It is the strength of the BJP that is affecting our opponents", said Modi.

The Congress also gave a notice for breach of privilege against parliamentary affairs minister Ananth Kumar for misleading the Lok Sabha over continued disruptions by naming its top leaders Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi. While Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with party workers directly, the party held functions across the country, to mark the occasion. BJP MPs have exposed Modi's "anti-Dalit" mindset and policies, he added.

Addressing the gathering, BJP President Amit Shah, stressed that with 11 crore members, BJP has become the largest political party in the world.

Neither the prime minister nor the BJP has reacted to the letter of Singh which is now widely shared all across. On Friday, MP Ashok Dohre had written to the PM, claiming that following the April 2 violence in the state during the agitation against the "dilution" of the SC/ST Act, Dalits were being targeted.
