As part of BJP's 38th Foundation Day celebration, the prime minister on Friday addressed party workers through the Narendra Modi app.

His remarks came on a day the budget session of Parliament ended with acrimony between the BJP and the opposition led by Congress over various issues leading to washout of the second leg of budget session. Having paced impressively through the last 38 years, the BJP of today is synonymous with high spirits, energy and hope for a better and a new India. The reason is not that we have made any mistake.

He said that it is because of its work that the BJP has spread its footprint throughout the country. "They can not imagine that when we got the opportunity to elect a Deputy Speaker, we selected Shri Suraj Bhan, who belonged to the Dalit community and later Shri Karia Munda, who is a tribal leader".

"You would have seen that the opposition (to Modi government) is becoming more intense and angrier".

He appealed to the BJP workers never to say or do anything that lowers India's political discourse.

After the recent violent uprising of the Dalits in six states of the country, now, the Narendra Modi government is facing charges from within the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for doing nothing for the members of the community. While Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with party workers directly, the party held functions across the country, to mark the occasion.

"In the era of social media and communication, if we remain inactive, those anti-national, anti-social, selfish, wrong-doers will occupy that space". "Casteist comments were being hurled at them", Dohre said, demanding action against police.

Modi gave a clarion call to the BJP Karyakartas to keep working for the nation and never get agitated by negativity of vested interest groups. "In fact, if there is one party that has consistently been a victim of political untouchability, it's BJP". "The BJP was scared and shaken off the Opposition parties, including the NDA partners, who were joining the Opposition ranks after the realization of the deceit and hollowness of BJPs promises as in the case of AP", he said, adding that the BJP and NDA were hushing up the corruption in their ranks and particularly the criminal acts of the BJP president Amit Shah and his son.

Modi thanked the party's "karyakartas" for their efforts to make the BJP reach from "Shunya" to "Shikhar".

Neither the prime minister nor the BJP has reacted to the letter of Singh which is now widely shared all across. The party truly believes in democratic politics.
