PM Modi to BJP leaders: Opposition misleading people, expose their lies on OBC panel, GST

A BJP statement said Modi told MPs about the opposition's "disinformation campaign" against the government and asked them to take its welfare measures to beneficiaries.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday slammed the Opposition parties for misleading people on BJP government's stand on other backward castes (OBC) and GST legislation. PM Modi also asked BJP MPS to expose the lies that are being propagated by the Opposition.

PM Narendra Modi today held a breakfast meeting with BJP MPS from Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Gujarat. This was his fourth interaction with parliamentarians from different states. PM asserted that his government has ignited new hope among those from the OBCs, poor and women.

A BJP statement said Modi told MPs about the opposition's "disinformation campaign" against the government and asked them to take its welfare measures to beneficiaries.

"Modi told them that the opposition was misleading people about the government's decision to accord constitutional status on OBCs' commission and the GST Act.

"BJP members should study facts and understand the opposition's lies. They should take this to people. They should inform masses that the central government is working for the poor," it said, quoting the prime minister.

Opposition parties have alleged that the BJP government was working to disband the OBC commission as part of its campaign to end reservation in government jobs and educational institutions, a charge denied by it.

In his meetings with MPs Modi has focused on a host of issues. During one such deliberation with the MPs from Uttar Pradesh he asked them to focus on development and not seek favours from Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
