The BJP ministers will be meeting the MPs of their party in the coming days to brief them about the Modi government’s demonetisation initiative. They will meet the MPs in groups of 40.
The first batch of BJP ministers will meet at Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar’s residence at 7 PM on Thursday. Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Railways Minister Suresh Prabhu, Information and Broadcasting Minister Venkaiah Naidu, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and Health Minister J P Nadda will brief these groups of MPs.
The schedule of the meeting is as follows: November 24 at Anant Kumar’s Residence, November 28 at Nadda’s residence, November 29 at Jaitley’s residence, November 30 at Naidu’s residence, December 6 at Parrikar’s residence, December 8 at Prabhu’s residence, December 12 at Gadkari’s residence, December 13 at Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti’s residence and December 14 at Rajnath’s residence.
The meeting is said to be critical as a united opposition has been targeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP-led NDA in Parliament since Day 1 of the winter Session and after PM Modi made this announcement about the note ban on November 8. According to the Opposition, the demonetisation move by the Modi government is entirely against the common man of India.
