Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said he wished to keep working and urged others to do the same too.

He spoke at the BJP's parliamentary party meeting where he was felicitated over the Bharatiya Janata Party's performance in assembly elections.

A BJP leader who attended the meeting said: "Modiji said he will keep working and asked us to do the same. He said that he will not sit idle and will not let anyone sit idle." 

Home Minister Rajnath Singh moved a resolution to congratulate Modi. Subsequently, 'prasad' brought from the Tirupati Balaji temple was distributed.

Asked if the name of the Chief Minister for Uttar Pradesh was finalised, Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad told reporters: "You need not worry. UP will get a capable Chief Minister."

Various programmes have been planned across the country from April 6 -- the day when the BJP was formed -- to April 14, the birth anniversary of BR Ambedkar. 

"Cleanliness drives and processions to create awareness about BHIM App -- a digital payment application -- will be held. BJP MPs will also participate in these events," the leader added.
