The first meeting of the BJP parliamentary party during the ongoing session was held today, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi expected to lay down the agenda for its near 380 MPs, the highest-ever saffron tally in Parliament. Apart from the significance of the ongoing session, in which his government will present its first budget and also hopes for the passage of many bills, Modi may also speak about key decisions his dispensation has taken since it assumed power in May.
Modi is also expected to issue some directives for the BJP MPs during the meeting. He is likely to ask the members to ensure attendance in Parliament, participate in debates and other businesses of the House.
The first meeting was scheduled for June 25 but called off following the death of Rajasthan BJP president and Rajya Sabha member Madan Lal Saini. The BJP won an unprecedented 303 seats in the general election.
