Opposition criticise PM’s video conference event with 1 crore party workers

The Prime Minister Narendra Modi is all set to interact with 1 crore BJP workers and volunteers from 15,000 locations across the country today.

The Bharatiya Janata Party claims that it will be world’s largest video conference. The meeting is scheduled to take place at 12 pm today.

The Congress have criticised the BJP and the PM Narendra Modi for going ahead with the “Mera Booth, Sabse Mazboot” event in the midst the tension and escalation at the border and also the capture of an Indian Air Force pilot by Pakistan after an air combat.

The Congress party have already cancelled it’s working committee meeting today. On Wednesday, 21 political opposition parties met to discuss the escalations at the border and the “leaders of the ruling party” for “blatant politicisation of the sacrifices of the armed forces”.

The Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal took a dig at the BJP and PM Modi via a tweet saying, “I would urge the PM to postpone this. At this moment, we as a nation, need to spend all our energies and time to get the IAF pilot back safely and to sternly deal with Pakistan.”

PM Modi’s interaction with 1 crore party workers hopes to mobilise support to galvanise the party ahead of the Lok Sabha elections in May this year.
