BJP meets to discuss LS polls strategy

By Super Admin

Nagpur, Feb 5: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national executive will discuss effective strategies to defeat the Congress in the coming Lok Sabha elections on Friday, Feb 6.

It will be their last major gathering before taking on the ruling Congress-led govt at the Lok sabha elections 2009 in Arpil and May.

While the National Executive of the party will be held on Friday, Feb 6, the two-day National Council will meet on Saturday, Feb 7 and Sunday, Feb 8. About 200 and over 5,000 delegates are expected to attend the two events respectively.

The three-day meet will be a session dedicated to give directions to the party rank and file for the final Lok Sabha polls preparation. BJP predictions of gaining more seats should be doing well. India is suffering an economic downturn and food prices have risen sharply, eating into pockets of millions of poor.

Congress has lost a string of state elections in the last year, partly because of inflation and its perceived weak leadership.

Terror attacks in India, including the coordinated attacks in Mumbai in November that killed 179 people, have raised criticism the government was caught off-guard.

The national executive will adopt three important resolutions on economic, political and agrarian issues.

The National Council would be attended by representatives right from the panchayat level, and for the first time, elected block level leaders have been called. All 'morchas' and cells will also attend the conclave. The meetings are being held in Nagpur, the headquarters of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), which is regarded as the BJP''s mentor.
