Party sources quoted Modi as saying that dynastic politics also promotes caste feelings and so has to be done away with. At the same time, he asked party leaders to analyze why the BJP lost where it lost.
He asked MPs to analyse at least 100 booths in their constituencies. Modi mentioned in his speech the recently released film The Kashmir Files and briefed the MPs about the evacuation of Indian students from Ukraine.
Tributes were paid to Indian student Naveen Shekharappa, who was killed in Ukraine, and Bajrang Dal worker Harsha, who was killed in Shivamogga in Karnataka.
