New Delhi: It seems good days have already arrived for the BJP office workers as Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be visiting the party`s headquarters to distribute them three-month salary as incentive for the hard work they had put in during the General Elections.

The office workers, who will be getting the incentives, include office staff, personal assistants, computer operators and cleaning staff.

Modi, had called a meeting of the BJP general secretaries at his residence on Saturday and decided to give bonus to the office staff as reward. Moreover, as per reports, matters related to Assembly elections in various states were also discussed.

Modi spent over an hour with the ten party general secretaries over breakfast at his residence here seeking suggestions from them on improving governance and strengthening the party. He had asked the party leaders to act as a bridge between the people and the government.

This was the first such meeting called by Modi after he took charge as Prime Minister.

The meeting was believed to be an attempt to ensure that organisational strength of the BJP is not weakened in the wake of massive mandate the party received in the recent Lok Sabha elections.

The sources said the Prime Minister also asked the party leaders to prepare for assembly elections in Maharashtra and Haryana later this year and Jharkhand, Jammu and Kashmir and Bihar next year.

Besides, he also asked them to be prepared for the assembly elections in 2016 in states of West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Assam and Puducherry.

Among the party leaders who attended meeting were BJP president Rajnath Singh, general secretary (organisation) Ram Lal and Amit Shah, Ananth Kumar, Dharmendra Pradhan, Varun Gandhi, Rajiv Pratap Rudy, Thawarchand Gehlot, J P Nadda, Tapir Gao and Murlidhar Rao.
