BJP’s Tarun makes courtesy call on PM (Lead)

August 6th, 2010 - 10:33 pm ICT by IANS  

Bharatiya Janata Party New Delhi, Aug 6 (IANS) Newly-elected Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Rajya Sabha MP Tarun Vijay Friday met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and presented him a copy of his recently published book “India Battles to Win”.
Vijay, who termed the meeting a “courtesy call”, termed as “positive” the prime minister’s stand during his meeting Thursday with BJP legislators from Jammu and Kashmir.

Singh had told the delegation that nothing would be done that demoralises security forces in Kashmir and the government had no hesitation in calling an all-party meeting to discuss the situation in the state - which had also been described as a positive attitude by Leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj.

Vijay, who had earlier called on senior leaders of his party, said he had decided to meet leaders from various parties as the BJP does not believe in ideological apartheid.

“We oppose them on programmes and policies but that shouldn’t result in untouchability, they belong to India and PM belongs to us all, not to any particular party,” he said.

The Prime Minister congratulated Vijay, who is also a BJP spokesman, on his election victory and wished him a successful tenure in parliament.
