Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah along with other BJP MP’s will go on a day-long fast on April 12 to protest against the disruption of Parliamentary proceedings by opposition parties.
All BJP MPs across the nation will also join the fast in what is being seen as an attempt to turn the tables on the Congress, a day after it held a symbolic fast at Rajghat in New Delhi.
“This is why all NDA MPs had also decided to forego their salaries for 23 days of the budget session of the Parliament,” he added.
This year’s Budget session has been the worst when it comes to productivity in the last eight years and the BJP has tried to put the blame on Congress for stopping deliberation in both Houses.
The Congress had stopped important bills from being passed, which led to a “criminal wastage” of the taxpayer’s money, parliamentary affairs minister Ananth Kumar had told reporters.
