Bengaluru, March 30: The prime agenda of the three day National Executive meeting of the Bharatiya Janata Party would be to strengthen the party in the Southern states.
The national executive to be held in Bengaluru between April 2 and 4th will look to instill enthusiasm into all party workers especially in South India so that the party makes inroads especially in states such as Tamil Nadu.
The meeting would be held by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP's national president, Amit Shah and a host of other leaders. The meeting is to be held at the Hotel Lalit Ashok and the entire area would resemble a fortress due to security reasons.
Bihar high on agenda:
The meeting would deliberate on the upcoming Bihar elections which is the immediate and biggest challenge ahead for the BJP.
There would be deliberations on the Delhi debacle which would be followed by strategizing for the Bihar elections where the BJP feels it is in with a bright chance and could install a government on its own.
Deliberations regarding the polls in West Bengal too would be discussed. The leadership, strategy among other aspects too would be discussed at the three day national executive meeting.
Leaders and workers from Odisha and Andhra Pradesh too would have to come up with plans on strengthening the party in their respective states and these too would figure high on the agenda.
Karnataka will be a gateway:
In South India, the BJP has its strongest hold in Karnataka and has even managed to form a government. The leaders from Karnataka would be given additional roles to make headway into the other southern states.
This the first national executive meeting since the BJP formed the government in the Centre. The idea would be to strengthen the party in all the states especially in South India. Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh where the BJP is in with a better chance would figure very high on the agenda.
The leaders would be told to speak out to the public about the achievements of Prime Minister Narendra Modi who would take part in meeting all the three days.
The BJP has a lot of expectations from Karnataka. The BJP is aiming at a 10 crore membership country wide and expects that Karnataka alone enrolls 1 crore members.
