Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday hosted a high tea for all NDA MPs — the first such event after the BJP-led alliance came to power in May — and utilised the occasion to ask them to be a symbol of positive political entity.

At the event held at his Race Course residence, Modi also made a fervent appeal to all the NDA MPs to ensure the success of his ambitious projects like Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, Jan Dhan scheme, Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana and labour reforms. The meeting lasted for about two hours during which the MPs were given presentations on these schemes.

“There was an elaborate discussion on many issues which the government has brought to the nation. We had an address by the Prime Minister who talked about cleanliness, various issues before the government, how a common MP can turn things in this country, how a common MP can be a symbol of positive political entity and how the respectability of politicians can be enhanced in the country,” said BJP general secretary Rajiv Pratap Rudy after the meeting.

He said the Prime Minister talked on a wide range of issues. “The Prime Minister happily endorsed the achievements of the BJP and greeted Amit Shah on his victory in Haryana and Maharashtra,” Rudy said.
