New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday asked the BJP MPs to expose Opposition on the issue of repeated disruptions in Parliament proceedings, sources said.

Addressing the BJP parliamentary party meeting, PM Modi asked his party MPs to inform people as to how the Opposition’s is not attending any meetings related to Parliament proceedings or letting Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha conduct any business.

The prime minister asked the MPs to tell people that the central government is ready for a discussion but the Opposition parties are not.

PM Modi’s sharp reaction comes as Opposition parties, including Congress, Trinamool Congress and others have been creating an uproar in both the Houses on the Pegasus snooping row, farm laws and other issues.

Both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha have been witnessing repeated adjournments on a daily basis ever since the Monsoon session of Parliament kickstarted on July 19.

Unruly scenes were witnessed today when the Lok Sabha House convened for the day. Despite LS Speaker OM Birla asking the Opposition MPs to maintain the decorum of the House, members trooped into the Well, shouting slogans and raising banners.

"Do not compete with each other in sloganeering. Compete with each other to raise people's issues," Birla said.

PM Modi also asked BJP MPs to mark 75 years of independence by organising programmes in every village of their constituencies.

Divulging details of the BJP parliamentary meeting, Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Arjun Ram Meghwal said that PM Mosi said, "The 75th anniversary celebrations of independence should not merely be a government programme, but it should be a people's movement with people's participation."
