Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday accused the Opposition of playing divisive politics. The Prime Minister is reported to have said this at the BJP Parliamentary Party meeting.

At the meeting he also announced that BJP MPs will observe a fast on April 12 to protest Opposition’s divisive politics and the ongoing impasse in Parliament. The Prime Minister blamed the Opposition, especially the Congress for the stalemate.

To counter the Opposition’s allegations that the BJP-led government is anti-Dalit, the party has decided its MPs and other leaders will visit over 20,844 villages, which has over 50 per cent population of scheduled castes and tribes, and inform them about the measures being taken by the Centre for the welfare of SC/STs.

BJP MPs and leaders are expected to spend a night in the villages between April 14 and May 5. And a ‘Sabka saath sabka vikas yatra’ is also being planned.

The government’s protests against the Opposition’s allegations have announced on a day when the BJP is celebrating its 38th foundation day.

The Foundation Day is dedicated the day to those who sacrificed their lives for the party’s growth, said the Prime Minister.

BJP has become the largest party because of people’s blessings and the tireless efforts of the party workers, explained the Prime Minister.
