Addressing karyakartasor party workers via video conference on 38th Foundation Day of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday spoke at length about the inclusive nature of the party and his own struggles to the top.

Speaking to reporters in the Parliament premises after the BJP Parliamentary Party meeting, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar said that during the meeting, Mr Modi said that the Congress party was indulging in divisive politics. "He told them to pick at least one village with over 50 percent population of SCs", The Indian Express quoted a BJP MP who attended the meeting as saying.

Modi used digital application - NarendraModi App - for the interaction, during which he appealed the party workers to refrain from using offensive language. Several organisations of the community make such pleas to us day and night. He added: "They can not imagine that when we got the opportunity to elect a President on our own strength, we elected a person belonging to the Dalit community".

The policies adopted by former Prime Minister A.B. Vajpayee in the past and Mr. Modi at present helped the party gain power in 20 States, BJP Kadapa district president P. Srinath Reddy said after hoisting the party flag in the BJP office in Kadapa.

He also asked the PM to take steps towards reservation in the private sector - a demand earlier raised by Union Minister and LJP chief Ram Vilas Paswan. "They can not imagine that when we got the opportunity to elect a Deputy Speaker, we selected Shri Suraj Bhan, who belonged to the Dalit community and later Shri Karia Munda, who is a tribal leader".

The strength of the BJP is affecting those in the Opposition and they are not able to digest that a person born into a backward family is serving the nation, said the PM. The BJP and its senior leaders were virtually ostracized from prevalent political scenario.

The MPs fear that marginalisation of Dalits could affect the BJP's prospects in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

"When I got elected, I met you to request for the passage of the bill to provide reservation in promotion. Their only aim is to defeat Modi".

They called upon the party cadre to propagate the BJP government's developmental and welfare schemes among the people.
