“The act of Opposition clearly indicates that Opposition has made its mind to be in Opposition and they are practising for the same. The nation has also made up its mind to keep them in opposition and will perhaps push them even more behind from where they currently stand. We should expose the Opposition keeping in mind to keep our voice under control and stay within limits of democracy,” BJP sources quoted PM Modi as saying at party’s parliamentary meet.

He said that the Opposition leaders were disrupting the proceedings of Parliament out of frustration borne from losses in recently held Assembly elections and giving Parliament security breach incident a political spin.

“Whatever happened in Parliament recently, those who believe in democracy will not accept such an act. This act should have been condemned. However, unfortunately what I have been witnessing is that the Opposition is letting out its frustration of losing in the election and giving political spin to the entire act,” he said

“They are even giving muted and indirect support to their act and this is worrisome. The act of Opposition of giving support to the act and saying things like what else they could have done is worrisome and condemnable,” the PM added.

As a piece of advise to his colleagues, PM Modi said that all the BJP MPs in the coming days should participate in the Parliament proceedings irrespective of others are participating or not.

“In the coming days, no matter whether others are participating or not, we must participate in the Parliament. Some of the Bills which are to be taken up are of great importance. We should listen to discussion on them. It would have been good if the Opposition would have participated in debates on them. But perhaps good deeds are not in their fortune,” PM Modi said.

Meanwhile, as many as 49 Lok Sabha MPs, include National Conference’s Farooq Abdullah and Congress leaders Shashi Tharoor and Manish Tewari, were suspended from the House for disrupting proceedings on Tuesday, a day after 78 opposition members were suspended from Parliament.

Last week, 14 MPs, 13 from Lok Sabha and 1 from Rajya Sabha – were suspended for disrupting the Parliament.

The total number of Opposition MPs suspended from Parliament now stands at 141.

INDIA bloc MPs have been demanding a statement from Home Minister Amit Shah on the security breach in Parliament on 13 December.
