There is a party whip too to this effect. He will be holding a series of meetings with the council of ministers and party MLAs, state BJP president Subhash Barala said. "That was a crucial time when the NDA choice for the presidential poll was being firmed up and we needed to secure the support of both factions of the AIADMK". Arrangements have been made to give a rousing welcome to the party chief, he said.

Giving his life's example, BJP President Shah said that a boy who used to paste posters on the streets is now standing as the President of India's leading political party shows how internally democratic BJP is. The party president has taken a serious view of the absence of members.

His remarks came a day after the Rajya Sabha passed the opposition-backed amendments to the legislation in an embarrassment to the government.

At the BJP Parliamentary party meet today morning, the issue of MPs absence is expected to be raked up again by party leaders. According constitutional status to the Commission has been MP Modi's top priority and he had in April slammed Opposition parties for stalling the bill. The situation left leader of the house Arun Jaitley and MoS for Parliamentary Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi virtually helpless. Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan and union ministers Ananth Kumar, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi and Narendra Singh Tomar were among the attendees. They have also been asked to explain in writing why they were missing from the house when the bill was voted on.

"It's a conspiracy of the Congress not to approve the amended Bill in the Rajya Sabha".

Congress also accused BJP of not being serious about the passage of the bill.

Despite Prime Minister Narendra Modi admonishing lawmakers for their continuous absences from Parliament, NDA legislators continue to be absent from house proceedings, with almost 30 NDA lawmakers absent from Rajya Sabha proceedings on Monday. "This rose to Rs 7,10,966 crore in the 14th Finance Commission during the Modi government", he said.
