Delhi: To tell its lawmakers how to behave, the ruling party at the Centre --
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) -- has planned a two-day training camp in the
Balayogi Auditorium in New Delhi on August 3-4, 2019. Every member of
Parliament of the BJP from both the houses will have to compulsory show up at
the event to be addressed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with many other
The BJP leaders are of the view that this is an attempt of the saffron outfit to train and sensitise all its 381 members of Parliament on the issues related to parliamentary practice, debates, party ideology, public speech, handling media and even the internal issues of the party.
The meeting is important because of the fact that training session would give clarity to the BJP MPs on ideological issues which is important for the BJP. They will also be told not to speak out of turn and on such subjects that they are not well equipped with. The meeting will not only attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on both days but he is likely to speak at the event as well.
Sources in the BJP said that the meeting will also be addressed by speakers not only from the BJP but outside the party as well on specialized subjects. Besides the PM and Union Home minister Amit Shah, there is a possibility that party general secretary and in-charge of BJP training cell Muralidhar Rao might also address it. All the MPs have been asked to attend this meeting without a miss. Actually the BJP wants to pull string on some of motor mouths in the party by telling them how to speak saving the party from any unnecessary controversy and embarrassment due to some of its own leaders.
Sources further informed that this is a hectic meeting that would start at 9 am and would finish at 9 pm. MPs will get breakfast, lunch and dinner at the venue itself. Training cell of the BJP has major role to play in it as it is continuously doing the same but at smaller level. It will take up many issues including etiquette and how to deal with media which is a major concern of the party.
Sources are not ready to divulge any further detail about the programme but the purpose of the entire exercise is to ensure that certain basic things are required for a MP, minister and people having organizational responsibilities.
Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) too keeps on doing such training camps for its workers but this would be the first such event when all BJP MPs will be participating in such a mega event that is dubbed as (Abhyas Varg).
