BJP is holding day long hunger strike to protest nearly complete washout of Budget Session of Parliament caused primarily by the Congress. Resentment of BJP is more over the fact that the Congress conducted itself in most undemocratic way by stalling the working of Parliament.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief Amit Shah from Thursday will tour northern parts of the poll-bound state of Karnataka, in a bid to canvass votes for the party in the upcoming assembly elections due next month. Modi is also going to inaugurate the Defence Expo in Tamil Nadu. Along with the Prime Minister and the party chief, several BJP MPs will also join the fast observation.

"As the Congress government has gone into slumber, I am sure the BJP will form the next government under the leadership of B.S. Yeddyurappa and put an end to five-year misrule of Siddaramaiah", said Shah on his second visit to the erstwhile Karnataka-Bombay province ahead of the crucial polls.

Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis, Gujarat CM Vijay Rupani and Jharkhand CM Raghubar Das took part in the fast in their respective states.

The Congress leader said that this was, however, something that went beyond the BJP leaders' understanding who observe "fake fast" after having food. By organising the fast, the BJP wants to send a message that the Union government was not responsible for the disruption of the Parliament.

Fadnavis, along with Mumbai BJP chief Ashish Shelar, MP Poonam Mahajan, actor-turned-MP Paresh Rawal and legislator Parag Alvani launched the fast at the party office in Vile Parle.


BJP declared the maximum expenditure of Rs 710.05 crore in 2016-17, while Congress incurred a total expenses of Rs 321.66 crore (Rs 96.30 crore more than its total income). This has never happened in the past.

Addressing a Press conference at CPI-M headquarters, Left Front chairman Biman Bose on Thursday said that Left Front will observe six-hour bandh on Friday.

"The BJP's fast is a drama to mislead the people". The party also removed two leaders accused of leading rioters during the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, Jagdish Tytler and Sajjan Kumar, from the state at the protest site before Rahul Gandhi's arrival.

He said the government was ready to discuss all issues, including the Punjab National Bank fraud and special status demand for Andhra Pradesh, but it was the Congress that used the smaller parties to disrupt the proceedings.

Health minister J P Nadda travelled to Modi's constituency Varanasi, while law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad and MoS rural development Ram Kripal Yadav were in Patna and Digha in Bihar, to sit on a fast.
