Narendra Modi gave tips to the new Parliamentarians

India's Prime Minister Mr Modi gave tips to his MPs of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). The meeting was mainly meant for the newly elected MPs (Member of Parliament) who are not familiar to the processes. It is an irony that Mr Modi himself is a first time MP and became the Prime Minister. This was the similar case while he became the Chief Minister of Gujarat state. Then he was first time MLA (Member of Legislative Assembly) while he became the Chief Minister.
The seminar focused on good governance and on how to interact with the people. He emphasised on development of own constituencies and strictly warned against involvement in corrupt practices.

Prime Minister Mr Modi on Saturday gave tips to the newly-elected MPs of BJP on how to maintain standards in public life and take the message of good governance to the people. After the inauguration of a two day workshop for over 150 newly elected MPs of BJP, Modi guided them on how to nurture their respective constituencies and make use of the media, especially the social network in spreading the message of the Government.
Minister Venkaih Naidu told the media reporters that the workshop was meant for the first time MPS of the government and make them aware of the BJP ideology on running the government. Mr Naidu also said Mr Modi guided the MPs on how to "maintain standards in public life, how to take the message of good governance to the people, the message of BJP and in turn of Modi to people".
 BJP leader Jagdish Mukhi, who is in charge of party affairs in Haryana, said the Prime Minister told them that their responsibilities as members of the ruling party are different and they should behave accordingly. The Prime Minister told them that they should treat the rule book on Parliament proceedings like the Bhagavad Gita and should not step out of it. He also advised them not do anything in Parliament without the permission of the chair.
 Modi arrived  at 8.30 on Saturday morning and inaugurated the workshop with home minister and BJP president Rajnath Singh. The workshop will be addressed by prominent senior leaders of the party like Sushma Swaraj, V. Naidu, Arun Jaitley.

 They also said the workshop will train them how to raise good questions in the parliament sessions.
