Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked BJP MPs to go on a 150-km padayatra (walkathon) in their respective constituencies between October 2 and 31, to mark the birth anniversaries of Mahatma Gandhi and Vallabhbhai Patel, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi said .

According to a report by PTI, after addressing a BJP Parliamentary party meeting, Modi also asked Rajya Sabha members to visit constituencies where the BJP organisation was weak.

‘Reach out to public’

“Modi told MPs that everyone should go on a 150-km-long padayatra in their constituencies starting from October 2, the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, to October 31, the birth anniversary of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel,” Joshi told reporters after the meeting.

Sharing details of the proposed programme, Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Arjun Ram Meghwal said the Prime Minister underlined that these padayatras should focus on villages and reaching out to public.

“Modiji told MPs that the idea is to reach out to public and seek their feedback on the government’s work and their expectations from us,” he said.

Cleanliness drive

Modi also suggested that tree planting, cleanliness and other rural issues can also be taken up during the march, Meghwal said.

He further said Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman spoke on the key features of the Budget.
