New Delhi, April 21: With an eye on 2019 elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will chair a meeting with the Bharatiya Janata Party-ruled states chief ministers in New Delhi on Sunday. According to reports, BJP chief Amit Shah will also attend the meet.
The call for a meeting came after Modi held a similar meeting with 33 NDA allies who assured of their help in 2019 elections.
According to reports, the meeting with all BJP chief ministers is described as an exercise to prepare for 2019 Lok Sabha elections. It was also described as a referendum on Modi's five tenure as the Prime Minister.
It is believed that three BJP-ruled states such as Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh will go to poll in 2018.
It is to be mention that BJP-ruled state Gujarat will also go to poll in 2017.
According to a BJP leader, who refused to tell his name said that Modi will not tolerate any anti-incumbency in the party which will bring down the party in 2019 elections.
He also said that the performance of the party will have a bearing in the Lok Sabha elections 2019.
He also said that Modi might ask all its party leaders to concentrate on their governance and avoid controversies as much as possible, adding that Modi might also suggest the leaders be careful about their remarks or comments while making in public which will grab media attraction to put the party into trouble.
Recently, during the BJP conclave meet in Bhubaneswar Modi said to have asked the party leaders to be mindful of their conducts.
Don't let the power go to your head, we should not get spoiled, Modi said to the 300 party leaders during conclave meeting in Odisha recently.
As of now, the BJP-ruled states are 13 and are sharing power in four other states.
