PM Modi to observe fast on April 12 against diruptions in Parliament

Earlier on Monday, Congress President Rahul Gandhi led the party's day-long fast at the Rajghat in Delhi over alleged increasing atrocities on Dalits, adivasis, and minorities and dubbed the Modi government as "anti-Dalit" while vowing to defeat the BJP in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

PM Modi on Tuesday announced that he will go on a whole day fast against "disruption of Parliament by oppositions that meant that the budget session of parliament was a lost cause".

BJP had decided it last week that its MPs from both Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha would observe a fast April 12 in their respective constituencies or district headquarters. "We're ready to talk about all the issues but they are not letting the houses function", union minister Ananth Kumar had said April 4.

Congress communications in-charge Randeep Singh Surjewala also said the BJP-led central government should be blamed for the Parliament washout. Almost 250 Parliament hours were wasted due to the disruptions, at an expense of Rs 9 crore per day.

The BJP Parliamentary Party has made a decision to observe day-long fast on Thursday in protest against impasse by the Opposition during the just concluded budget session.

"They have disrespected and denigrated the highest temple of democracy".

The Prime Minister added that though he will be a part of the agitation, his work will continue uninterrupted. The congress also demands apology from the BJP from the CBSE paper leak and SSC scam.

PM Modi, in an address to party lawmakers, said that opposition parties due to their "political arrogance" and "hunger for power" have trampled upon democratic principles by holding Parliament to ransom. He said that government should apologise for not disclosing the details of the deal.
