This decision was taken at a dinner meeting attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the BJP headquarters in New Delhi.

“This would lead to better coordination and also strengthen the democratic system,” Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar said.

The BJP also decided that a Minister on an official visit to any part of the country will make sure to visit the local party office.

"The Ministers will meet party workers, listen to their problems and address their concerns. It is a good way to hear people's voice," he added.

"Every Minister will at least one day in a month come to the party office," he added.
Javadekar further said, “This is a system that had evolved under the previous NDA government led by Atal Bihari Vajpayee where Ministers met party workers under the ‘sahyog’ programme.”

A number of Central Ministers and top BJP leaders, including party president and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh attended the meeting.

During the meeting, Modi and Rajnath Singh discussed the party's plans and preparedness for the upcoming assembly elections in some states and asked all the Ministers to visit the concerned states more frequently.

Maintain standards in public life, use social media for spreading govt message: Modi

The Prime Minister had earlier last week asked the newly-elected MPs of BJP to maintain standards in public life and take the message of good governance to the people.

Modi, who inaugurated a two-day workshop for over 150 newly elected Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha MPs of BJP earlier on Saturday, guided them on how to nurture their respective constituencies and make use of the media, especially the social media in spreading the party message.

Modi also guided the MPs on how to “maintain standards in public life, how to take the message of good governance to the people.

Modi told them that they should treat the rule book on Parliament proceedings like the Bhagavad Gita and should not step out of it. He also advised them not to do anything in Parliament without the permission of the Chair.

The Prime Minister asked the new MPs to inculcate good parliamentary practices and good conduct in their public life.
