The BJP is an “organic” entity and not an “assembled” entity, Prime Minister Narendra Modi told the ruling party lawmakers here as he asked them to remain active as ground workers even after becoming ministers or legislators.

The PM was addressing the BJP lawmakers at a two-day training programme – Abhyas Varga.

“The BJP has reached here because of its ideology and thoughts not because of one family’s legacy,” he said.

“The party worker in you should remain alive always even if you become a minister or an MP. Irrespective of your age, always remain a student so that learning process goes on,” Modi was quoted as saying by Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi.

The programme will focus on sensitisation of MPs, especially newly elected lawmakers on their conduct both inside and outside Parliament.

The party leadership has asked all MPs to ensure their attendance at the workshop.

The two-day training programme is being attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah, and party’s working president JP Nadda, among others.
