Being a tough task master that he is Prime Minister Narendra Modi has expressed anger at the absenteeism among the ministers and MPs in the Lok Sabha. He was very unhappy with the ministers skipping the proceedings of the house especially when their names were entered into the roster.
Prime Minister Modi, who held a meeting of the BJP Parliamentary Party on Tuesday morning, pointed out that some members were not taking the Lok Sabha proceedings seriously. He also asked the Parliamentary party secretary to give him a list of MPs and ministers who had absented from the proceedings.
The BJP parliamentary party meets every Tuesday to discuss the developments, the way the proceedings went and to plan for the coming week. The Prime Minister had made this a habit and party functionaries inform all MPs to be present on time. On Tuesday, minister Rajnath Singh, Prahlad Joshi and Dhruv Jaishankar and V Muralitharan were among those who arrived early.
