Straighten up boys: Narendra Modi to impart etiquette lessons to BJP MPs
New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party is organising a two-day orientation programme for its newly elected MPs from June 28.
Prominent leaders including Narendra Modi will teach lawmakers how to maintain decorum and refrain from tarnishing the party’s image.
Senior BJP leadership has also prepared a document with do’s and don’ts. The document says that it is mandatory for an MP to mark his presence in Parliament when in the national capital.
MPS have also been told to set goals and present a roadmap for achieving them.
The document also says that no MPs should comment in the media unless asked by the government to do so and also remain vigilant from possible sting operations.
Strict instructions will be given to MPs who are travelling. They would not be allowed to misuse power and book tickets for their extended family, relatives.
Modi will also urge lawmakers to become more ‘tech savvy’. All of them have been asked to have a Twitter account.
The BJP plans to hold such orientation programmes across the country in all BJP-ruled states.
