New Delhi, May 31: The BJP today asserted that it would go ahead with the party's scheduled two-day National Executive starting tomorrow notwithstanding the threats from Gujjar organisations to obstruct the meet.

The Executive would be held as per schedule and there was no change in the venue, BJP Vice President Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said. The Executive was originally scheduled to be held in Jaipur but had to be postponed following the Gujjar agitation which has claimed over 30 lives. The party has announced that it would not just discuss the poll success in Karnataka where the party won a near majority of seats in the 224 Member Assembly and formed the government with the support of six Independents. The party would focus on the coming assembly elections in 2008 and the next Lok Sabha polls which should be held before May 2009. The states going to poll would apprise the Executive, the party's apex decision making body, about the poll prospects.

The meet would start with an address by BJP President Rajnath Singh at Parliament Annexe and the concluding remarks will be delivered by party Prime Ministerial candidate L K Advani. The Chief Ministers of all BJP ruled states, a Deputy Chief Minister and senior ministers where the party is ruling in alliance would also take part in the meet.

The Executive will to deliberate and pass three resolutions, attacking the ''wrong policies'' of the UPA government, price rise and inflation. There will also be a separate resolution on the country's policies with its neighbours, he said.
