New Delhi, Apr 6 (IBNS) : Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday announced that BJP MPs will observe a fast on April 12 to protest the impasse in Parliament, media reports said.

Speaking at a BJP Parliamentary Party meeting, the PM blamed the opposition, particularly the Congress, for indulging in  "divisive and negative politics" and claimed that the BJP, on the other hand, has been pursuing an "inclusive politics."

"The Prime Minister said at a BJP Parliamentary Party  meeting that the ruling party was doing an inclusive politics while the opposition was doing divisive and negative politics due to the saffron party's rising strength, Parliamentary Affairs Minister  Ananth Kumar told reporters.

BJP will protest against this  negative attitude of Congress,  Ananth Kuma said. 


"BJP works for connecting people, Congress works for dividing people. Congress indulges in divisive, negative politics. It didn't let the House function. We'll sit in protest against the negative attitude of Congress during last 23 days, Kumar said.
