Modi, Shah lead BJP MPs’ fast against Parliament disruption

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah along with BJP MPs observed fast on Thursday across the country to protest against the washout of the second half of Parliament’s Budget session for which the BJP blamed on the Congress.
Modi observed the fast even as he continued with his official work, including inaugurating the 10th edition of Defence Expo at Thiruvidanthai near Chennai.
Shah undertook the hunger strike at Dharwad in election-bound Karnataka along with party’s Chief Ministerial candidate B.S. Yeddyurappa and other MPs.
Shah hit out at the Congress for “disrupting” Parliament, saying it happened for the first in independent India’s history that the ruling party (BJP) was ready to discuss every issue but the opposition was shying away from discussion.
