The comments assume significance in the wake of the BJP’s pitch for ‘sabka saath’ and development ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections in 2024.
BJP national president JP Nadda has come down hard on party MPs for commenting on issues related to Sanatan Dharma, religious personalities and religion in general.
Nadda has also asked the MPs to take the presidential address, which highlights the achievements of the Narendra Modi-led government over the years. He also asked them to update the Prime Minister’s ‘Mann Ki Baat’ episodes on the NaMo app and the WhatsApp contact provided by the party.
Citing the example of Mahant Dhirendra Shastri of Bageshwar Dham, the national president of the party has asked the MPs to refrain from commenting on the issues raised by religious leaders.
Nadda’s instructions came in the virtual meeting on Friday. The MPs have been asked to be vigilant and not to fuel such controversies.
“It was told that the party would take a stand on these issues and they (MPs) should not make their views public on these. You should refrain from commenting on such issues as views cannot be attributed to the party and for this the party has spokespersons.
The comments assume significance in view of the party’s pitch for ‘sabka saath’ and development ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections in 2024. Statement on that too.
It was during the National Executive that Prime Minister Modi suggested that small groups should be formed in each state to discuss the central and state budgets. MPs have been asked to hold press conferences.
Nadda has also asked the public to hold small discussions in each block in each parliamentary constituency. He asked all the MPs to complete the list of works between February 20 and March 20.
