New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday asked BJP workers not to be diverted by "non-issues" raised from time to time by political detractors and focus on nation building by helping the poorer and weaker sections of people.
"Our government is doing a good job. And our party workers should not get diverted by non-issues and we should focus on our own agenda," he said at the concluding session of the two-day BJP national executive meet here.
Briefing reporters about the speech, Home Minister Rajnath Singh said that the prime minister, in his address said: "We should not get ourselves embroiled in controversies surrouding non-issues."
Modi also hailed the Budget 2016-17 and said even small works as enunciated in the budget proposals like keeping small shops and business outlets open for all seven days should be taken to the people by the BJP workers.
"I feel it is necessary that the BJP workers should focus on capacity building and contribute in empowering India," he said, calling on them to get involved more with the government's developmental works and projects like the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan and Beti Bachao, Beto Padao scheme.
