BJP chief Amit Shah said that Congress' policy was to disrupt the Parliament so that it can not work on the pro-poor agenda of the Modi government. "This fast is just a farce", Chavan said dismissively during a media briefing.

The incident was reported on a day when Prime Minister Narendra Modi led a nationwide fast on Thursday to protest the disruptions in Parliament.

In his blog, he mentioned due to the "irresponsible" attitude of the opposition, Rs 333 crore of public money was wasted during the session.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah on Thursday visited Uttar Pradesh to take stock of the preparations for the upcoming legislative council polls in the state and meet the party's "sulking" alliance partners.




The finance minister, parliamentary affairs minister and home minister had assured that the house be allowed to run and debate on issues, be it special status to Andhra Pradesh, Cauvery water dispute or the non-confidence motion. "The party doesn't support their participation in the rally", Lekhi said. The fast was however accompanied with slip ups by the party which had put it on a defensive spot. The move to organize fast has made BJP a laughing stock.

Rizvi even asked the Prime Minister to take appropriate action against Madrasa which as per him "continues to be the center of promoting terrorism in the country". I will also hold fast.

BJP MPs have been asked to spend at least a night in one such village, while Union ministers will spend two nights in different parts of the country during the exercise. During his first stint as chief minister in Delhi, Kejriwal also sat on a protest outside the Rail Bhawan in central Delhi to protest against the non-cooperation by officers. Rupani was supposed to attend a fast arranged by the saffron party in Lal Darwaja near Bhadra Fort, to protest the log jam created by the Congress in Parliament.
