Even as Opposition leaders continue to create ruckus in Parliament over the Pegasus snooping issue, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday reportedly gave a stern message to BJP MPs about dealing with garrulous leaders.

Addressing the issue of continuous disruptions by opposition leaders since the start of the Monsoon Session earlier this month, PM Modi said that the government was ready to discuss matters but that the opposition was not ready to do so. He further asked the MPs to "expose the opposition parties" that are indulging in disruptions since the government was ready for a discussion but they were not, sources said.

PM Modi also asked BJP MPs on Tuesday to mark 75 years of independence by organising programmes in every village of their constituencies, Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Arjun Ram Meghwal said.

Addressing the BJP parliamentary party meeting, Modi 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, Meghwal told reporters after the meeting.

He asked the BJP MPs to form a team of two-party workers in each Assembly segment, which will organise the programmes and seek suggestions and ideas from people on how they envisage India in 2047, when the country will complete 100 years of independence.

The prime minister told the MPs that these teams of two BJP workers will visit 75 villages in each Assembly constituency and spend 75 hours in each constituency, Meghwal said.

The 75 years of independence can also be celebrated by organising local sports events and cleanliness drives, Modi said.

He also emphasised on the digital literacy of people in rural India so that they can avail maximum benefits of the government welfare schemes, the minister said.
