BJP respects & acknowledges contributions of all PMs, says PM Modi


Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is the only party that has respected and acknowledged the contributions of all Prime Ministers. He said this in his address to BJP lawmakers at New Delhi’s Ambedkar Auditorium. Modi said the upcoming Prime Ministers Museum is an example of the BJP’s commitment to acknowledge all of them irrespective of the parties they came from, said a party person aware of the matter.

A resolution was also passed at the lawmakers’ meeting applauding the decision to extend the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana, which was announced in March 2020 in view of the Covid-19 pandemic, for another six months. The decision for extending the scheme under which free ration is provided was taken at a Cabinet meeting on Saturday.

Modi asked the lawmakers to participate in the party’s programmes from April 6 (BJP’s foundation day) to April 14 (Ambedkar Jayanti).
