NEW DELHI: The Prime Minister Narendra Modi has drawn the Luxman Rekha for the BJP MPs in Uttar Pradesh in the light of the party coming to power in the state, while delivering a clear message that they should not interfere in the administration of the new government.
The Prime Minister met all the NDA MPs from UP at his residence on Thursday morning. While the meeting was stated to be the Prime Minister thanking the MPs for their “hard work” to help the party win the elections, sources said that Modi cautioned them not fall in the trap by interfering in the administration.
“The Prime Minister said that the MPs should not demand transfer and posting of officials with the new chief minister in UP. There is a new government in the state after the BJP came to power after a gap of 15 years. The Prime Minister noted that the efficiency of the administration was blunted during the Samajwadi Party government because of the excessive interference by the party leaders. The BJP MPs should not commit similar mistakes,” said a BJP MP from UP after the meeting.
The Prime Minister praised all the MPs for their roles in ensuring the victory of the BJP candidates in their respective constituencies in the Assembly elections, said another BJP MP. Incidentally, Modi is also a BJP MP from the Varanasi Lok Sabha seat in UP.
“The Prime Minister said that there is massive challenge lying ahead for the Yogi government in the state. The MPs should help in coordinating efforts to reach the benefits of various schemes and programmes of the state and Central government,” sources said.
