New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday praised the members of Biju Jana Dal (BJD) and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) while speaking at the House on the occasion of the 250th session of Rajya Sabha.
PM Modi said that Sharad Pawar’s NCP and Naveen Patnaik’s BJD have wonderfully adhered to parliamentary norms by not entering the Well of the House.
“Today I want to appreciate two parties, NCP and BJD. These parties have wonderfully adhered to parliamentary norms. They have never ventured into the well. They have made their points very effectively. Other parties including mine can learn from them,” the Prime Minister said.
These parties have wonderfully adhered to Parliamentary norms. They have never ventured into the well. Yet, they have made their points very effectively.
Much can be learnt from these practices: PM @narendramodi

PM Modi’s view came at a time when BJP’s long-time ally Shiv Sena quit NDA following their differences over power sharing in Maharashtra.
Notably, BJP with 105 seats and Shiv Sena with 56 in Maharashtra Assembly failed to reach an agreement over power sharing as BJP rejected Shiv Sena’s demand of Chief Minister’s post for 2 and a half year each.
