Union Minister Virendra Khatik accused Congress of doing irresponsible behaviour during Monsoon Session of Parliament. He said that Opposition parties did not allow Parliament to function smoothly even for a day. They tried to interrupt discussion on burning issues related to public welfare. Addressing the press conference in Bhopal, he told that there has been a tradition of introduction of new Union Ministers in the Parliament. But Opposition showed no respect to this tradition. Lashing out at Congress-led Opposition, he praised the Modi government by saying that after Union Cabinet expansion, number of OBC Cabinet members increased to twenty seven. Apart from this, there are twelve union ministers from scheduled caste, eight from scheduled tribe. As far as women representation is concerned then there are 11 women MPs who have been included in Union Cabinet.
He asserted that when Opposition did not allow introduction of these new Union ministers in Parliament, then BJP central leadership decided that newly-inducted Union ministers will go among masses and will seek their blessing. He said that during their Jan Ashirwad Yatra, all newly-inducted Union ministers are going into their respective regions to seek public blessings. They are also giving information to people about central public welfare schemes. He said that work done by Modi government for backward class, dalits etc has been not done by Congress and other political parties. Congress ruled country for over the years but it did not allowed implementation of Mandal commission recommendations. Modi government did the work of according constitutional status to OBC Commission. He also added that Modi government bravely confronted corona challenge, earlier, during Congress period, country took years to develop vaccine and polio vaccine is example of this. But owing to encourage of Modi government, country has developed its own corona vaccine in shortest period. More than 55 crore people have been vaccinated in country.
