New Delhi, Aug.28 (ANI): A concept note circulated during the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP's) Chintan Baithak held in Simla last week has called on members of the party to work unitedly to set their house in order within three months.
Here is what the note says, according to a private television channel.
The first section is called "Proposal". It analyses what has been ailing the party and the major problem pointed out was the party's keenness in being on election mode, at the cost of developing the organization.
The second section refers specifically at Elections 2009 and points out that leaders of the party were keen on advancing their own goals at the cost of the party. It goes on to say that to maintain good relations with the media, key party issues were freely discussed with them, and that BJP had become 'infected' with 'corporate culture'.
The third section is called "forward planning" and has suggestions of how to rejuvinate the party. It says more youngsters need to be attracted to the party and most interestingly points out that the party is not coordinated with the RSS anymore.
Section four lists other factors. For the party's degeneration, without mincing words, the note says that there is a need for greater discipline at the Central level and infighting among leaders must end.
The final section is called "Resolution" and suggests that everyone in the party must work together, and form a three-month agenda to turn the party around. (ANI)
