BJP`s new national executive to meet in Patna ahead of polls
The strategy for poll-bound Bihar and national issues like price rise and internal security will be in focus at the the first meeting of BJP`s newly constituted national executive to be held in Patna on June 12-13.
New Delhi: The strategy for poll-bound Bihar and national issues like price rise and internal security will be in focus at the the first meeting of BJP`s newly constituted national executive under president Nitin Gadkari to be held in Patna on June 12-13.
"The decision to hold the national conclave in Patna was taken keeping in view the forthcoming assembly elections in Bihar in October," a senior BJP MP said Monday.
BJP is a junior partner in the Nitish Kumar-led government in Bihar. The party is hopeful of continuing in power and would base its campaign on the achievements of the
government, especially in infrastructure development and law and order.
The party will not house its leaders in tents as was done at the recent national council and executive meeting in Indore.
There are 120 members in the national executive with 33 per cent of the constituents being women. BJP vice-presidents, general secretaries and secretaries, as well
as Leader of Opposition in both Houses of Parliament and senior leaders like L K Advani will attend the meeting.
The Parliamentary Board members of BJP as well as some special invitees will also participate.
The national executive will also focus on how to take on the Congress-led UPA government at the Centre. The issue of price rise and alleged government apathy towards controlling it will dominate the proceedings at the conclave.
BJP had recently held a huge rally in the national capital against price rise and pledged to continue the struggle.
Other issues like internal security, relations with neighbouring countries- especially Pakistan and China, and corruption in government will also figure prominently in the
