    Parliament LIVE Updates | Ensure coconut cracks, not the road: LS member on quality of roads 

    Next time, ensure that the coconut cracks and not the road, remarked a member from Uttar Pradesh in the Lok Sabha on Tuesday while flagging concerns about the quality of roads. Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) member Shyam Singh Yadav made the remarks during the Question Hour while referring to a recent incident where a portion of a newly constructed road got damaged when an elected representative smashed a coconut on the road during its inauguration in Bijnor district. Smashing a coconut is considered auspicious before starting or inaugurating new projects. Yadav who represents Jaunpur constituency mentioned about the incident while asking a supplementary question related to construction of roads under the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY).  "The quality of road being constructed in Uttar Pradesh under the PMGSY is very poor. You must have seen, a coconut was smashed on a road in Bijnor. The coconut did not crack but the road cracked...," the member said. Taking a swipe, he said that in the first stage, the coconut as well as road should crack and in the next stage "the coconut should crack and not the road".

    Parliament LIVE Updates | Narendra Modi pulls up BJP MPs for skipping the House

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi pulled up Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MPs, who were either absent or irregularly attending Parliament in the ongoing Winter session on December 7. At a meeting of the BJP’s parliamentary party, Modi warned those MPs, saying that if they don’t transform themselves, there could be changes with time, reported NDTV. The poor attendance of the BJP MPs has been flagged by Modi many times in the past as well.

    Modi asked the MPs to “please be regular in attending Parliament and meetings”, the report said. “It is not good for me to continuously stress about this (and treat you) like children. If you don’t change yourself, there will be changes in due course,” Modi said. Several senior ministers of the party, including Home Minister Amit Shah, Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar, party president JP Nadda and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi were present in the meeting, according to the report.

    The warning comes as the BJP-led government faces opposition’s fury in the Parliament. The ruling party is being cornered about various issues, including the botched army operation in Nagaland where 14 civilians were killed in Mon district. Suspension of 12 opposition MPs from the Rajya Sabha is another issue. A total of 12 opposition MPs were suspended from the Upper House on November 29 for the entire Winter session for their “unruly” conduct in the previous session in August.
