BJP takes Corporate turn: MPs to spend weekend in workshop on social media, NaMo App and Bengal strategies
The weekend workshop for all BJP parliamentarians will have dedicated sessions by Modi, Shah and Rajnath Singh
Who says politicians enjoy undue power and apparently do what they feel like? Not on Narendra Modi's watch. BJP has gone corporate this season with a full-blown two-day workshop over the weekend. Yes, just like the ones your HR organises on on your week offs these too are compulsory. The two-day weekend workshop for all BJP parliamentarians will start at the GMC Balayogi Auditorium in the Parliament Library building in New Delhi from Saturday with dedicated sessions by the Prime Minister, Home Minister Amit Shah, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh and BJP working president JP Nadda.
But it's not just politics that the lawmakers are going to discuss. It seems as though they are being given tech training as well. There will be a dedicated session for training on NaMo App. A dedicated session on NaMo App and social media is also planned during the day which will have Amit Malviya, the national IT head of the BJP as a speaker.
The training will kick-off with 'Abhyas Varga' training programme that begins at 10.30 am on Saturday and is compulsory for all BJP lawmakers from Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha. The topic — 'Situation in West Bengal'. They will continue to talk about Bengal strategies on August 4 as well in a dedicated session. The two-day programme will have sessions to sensitise MPs, especially those newly inducted — just like induction and trust exercises — on their conduct both inside and outside the Parliament. They will also be informed on how to connect with masses on issues related to public welfare.
Multiple sessions have been scheduled for the first day in which the first one-hour long session will be addressed by working president JP Nadda on the topic of "Our Thoughts and Concept of New India". Later BJP general secretary Bhupendra Yadav will brief the parliamentarians of parliamentary processes and Union Minister Arjun Ram Meghwal will talk about MP fund.
Home Minister Amit Shah is set to address the final session of the first day and will be speaking on the topic of "We, Our organisation and our work culture". The valedictory session of the two-day meet will be addressed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Apart from these, the lawmakers will be sensitised on how to put forth the issues faced by people from their respective constituencies in Parliament.
