Prime Minister Modi turned breakfast meetings with party MPs, during the recently concluded winter session of parliament, into power meetings, where he explained to them the vital importance of social media and digital presence in creating perception in the present and in the future. according to sources.
According to the sources, Prime Minister Modi held three times breakfast meetings with MPs in groups according to states during the recently concluded winter session of parliament.
During these meetings, party MPs were told to work rigorously on increasing their social media following and keeping the electorate engaged, sources said.
Prime Minister Modi specifically targeted Rajya Sabha party MPs to connect people, the sources said. BJP has a total of 92 Rajya Sabha MPs as of now.
“Even if the Rajya Sabha MPs do not have constituencies they represent, they should be willing and encourage them to actively participate in the work or responsibilities assigned to them by the party. Regular follow-up at their assigned location and regular visits will be helpful in registering in the minds of the locals, MPs were said to have been told,” sources said.
The Prime Minister is said to have placed an emphasis on spreading the work of the Center and its mark on future generations.
While MPs were asked to be present in parliament all the time and to come well prepared for debates and discussions, a major boost was given to social media presence, according to the sources.
“An individual assessment of their social media presence and engagement has been made for all MPs,” sources said.
Some of the parameters included whether the MPs had a good presence on various social media platforms, especially Twitter.
MPs were judged on whether they shared content through the NaMo app about the government’s initiatives, especially Prime Minister Modi, whether they had shared on social media about trending issues, major government decisions, the party’s electoral success, the sharing media coverage and columns on the party/government’s actions and attacking negative opposition politics, among other issues. The content of Mann Ki Baat is widely shared or MPs were also not asked”, said sources.
“He asked his party colleagues how many of them had visited the Pradhan Mantri Sanghralaya, Kashi & Mahakal corridors and the Statue of Unity, among others, built in the greater public interest and without any political motives. Prime Minister said he has encouraged MPs to visit these locations and organize public visits to these historic sites,” the sources said.
“Even if the Rajya Sabha MPs do not have constituencies they represent, they should be willing and encourage them to actively participate in the work or responsibilities assigned to them by the party. Regular follow-up at their assigned location and regular visits will be helpful in registering in the minds of the locals, MPs were said to have been told,” they added.
India assumed the presidency of the G20 for a full year in December 2022 and more than 600 programs were to be held in more than 55 cities in the space of a year.
Sources called the opportunity the pride of the country and quoted Prime Minister Modi as saying that the message should be spread far and wide and public participation should be encouraged.
Prime Minister Modi, who has been in perfect health since taking office in 2014 and has never taken a day’s leave as the data shows, also had advice for his fellow party members.
“At each of the three meetings, Modi allegedly asked MPs how many of them had regular health checks and if not, they should do so without delay,” the sources said.
“The responsibility of the Rajya Sabha MPs elected from the Council of States is equal if not less than that of the elected representatives is the point Modi has underlined,” they added.
While Prime Minister Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Defense Ministers are Lok Sabha MPs, several top ministers in the central government are Rajya Sabha MPs. LoH Piyush Goyal, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, Foreign Minister Subramaniam Jaishankar, Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia, Oil Minister Hardeep Puri and Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan are from the Upper House.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has stepped up its preparations to score a hat-trick of the 2024 Lok Sabha poll win. The party is targeting the seats it lost in the 2019 general election.
The BJP already has a plan for the Lok Sabha with 160 identified sets which the BJP has not won before.
