BJP leaders will also hold a protest march on Wednesday in the capital on Shinde`s remarks against RSS and BJP on the terror issue.
The BJP core committee, at a meeting chaired by President Rajnath Singh on Monday, discussed the party`s strategy for the Budget Session, BJP spokesman Ravishankar Prasad told reporters here.
The committee also discussed matters to be deliberated at party`s National Executive and National Council meetings scheduled to be held at Talkatora Stadium here between March 1-3, he said.
The March 1-3 meetings, which the party said would be attended by nearly 4,000 delegates, are also expected to put a formal stamp of approval on the election of Rajnath Singh as the BJP chief.
