Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday chaired the National Democratic Alliance’s (NDA) parliamentary party meeting, in what was his first address to the MPs of the ruling bloc during the first session of Parliament since he assumed office for a third term.

During the meeting, the Prime Minister advised all NDA MPs to not behave the way Congress leader Rahul Gandhi did in the Lok Sabha.The NDA meeting comes amid discussions in the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha on the Motion of Thanks to President Droupadi Murmu’s address to a joint sitting of Parliament.

After the meeting, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kiren Rijiju, while speaking to reporters, said, “Today, the Prime Minister gave us an important mantra. He said that every MP has been elected to the House to serve the nation. Irrespective of the party they belong to, service to the nation is our first responsibility.”

“Every NDA MP has to work by prioritising the country. The PM also guided us well regarding the conduct of MPs and said that every MP should present the matters of their constituency in the House very well as per the rules. He also told us to develop expertise in other major issues of interest,” Rijiju said.

“The Prime Minister also made one request. Every MP, along with their family, should visit the Pradhanmantri Sangrahalaya, behind which there was no political agenda. This was an effort to let the entire country know of the contribution of each prime minister, appreciate it, and learn from it,” the Union Minister said. Later today, PM Modi is also expected to reply to the discussions in both Houses.
