Last Updated 28 June 2014, 04:26 IST

A two-day orientation programme starting today has been organised to impart training to the newly-elected BJP MPs on enhancing their Parliamentary and public conduct.

The workshop which will be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi will take place at Surjakund near here.

Modi will deliver the inaugural address in the morning, and along with Home Minister Rajnath Singh will try and inspire the new legislators to emulate best practices, party sources said.

Around 180 newly-elected BJP MPs, including 162 from the Lok Sabha and 18 from Rajya Sabha will attend the training workshop which will give them tips on improving their performance as an MP as well as on their conduct.

There are around 40 MPs from among the SCs/STs while another 30 are women first-time members.

Top BJP leaders and old time Parliamentarians will impart training to the first-time MPs on how to utilise their services best in the interest of public good.

They will also be told on how to spend their MPLAD fund in the best public interest.

Party leaders say the workshop will impart training to them on how to put good questions in Parliament and what kind of urgent public matters to raise during Zero Hour debates in both the Houses.

The workshop will also stress upon them to improve their attendance in Parliament and strengthen their skills by reflecting on problems of their constituencies and mitigate public suffering by helping to find solutions for them.

The MPs will also be given some lessons on their public conduct.

The workshop comes ahead of the Budget Session of Parliament starting July 7.

The new MPs will also be asked to remain in touch with public through social media.

Party patriarch L K Advani is likely to deliver the valedictory address on Sunday while other senior leaders including former BJP presidents and Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu besides Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj will also share their Parliamentary experience with them.
