New Delhi: The BJP Parliamentary Party today unanimously condemned the "unruly" and "objectionable" remarks by Mamata Banerjee and TMC leader Kalyan Banerjee against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other leaders, saying such remarks go against civic ethics.
The party MPs, who met in Parliament House library in the absence of the Prime Minister and BJP chief Shah, were informed that the Insurance Bill will be taken up next week in the Parliament after the Union Cabinet approves the report of the Select Committee.
The party also hailed Modi's rally in Srinagar yesterday which was attended by a record number of Kashmiris and termed it as a "historic" one.
"The BJP Parliamentary Party unanimously condemned the unruly and indecent remarks made by Mamata Banerjee and TMC leader Kalyan Banerjee against the Prime Minister and other BJP leaders. The party feels such remarks against the democratic spirit and civic ethics," Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said after the meet.
Naqvi said the party leaders felt such uncalled for remarks are "highly condemnable and objectionable".
Earlier addressing BJP MPs at the meeting, Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley informed them that the Insurance Bill will be taken up in Parliament next week as the Select Committee of Rajya Sabha looking into the bill has approved it and will present its report.
Jaitley told them that once the report is submitted to Rajya Sabha, the Union Cabinet will approve the recommendations and the bill will be taken up for consideration and passage.
He also informed the members on how the stalemate in Rajya Sabha was resolved as various parties creating uproar over Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti's remarks had scaled down their demand and were seeking to find a "face saver" to come out of the situation as "they were losing their image before public".
Parliamentary Affairs Minister M Venkaiah Naidu talked about the Prime Minister's "historic" rally in Srinagar which was hailed by the Parliamentary Party. He then asked Union Minister Jitendra Singh to apprise them about the rally, where he accompanied the Prime Minister.
Singh said never before in the last 30 years such a rally took place in Srinagar where a large number of people gathered to hear the Prime Minister. He also expressed hope that BJP will perform well in the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly elections.
The BJP Parliamentary Party also congratulated the Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan units of the party for the party's victory in the civic body elections in both the states.
