Kochi, Aug 8 Prime Minister Narendra Modi will attend the BJP's national council and national executive meetings in Kozhikode next month to mark the centenary year of late Jan Sangh president Deendayal Upadhyayay.
Talking to reporters after BJP's Kerala state leadership meet, state president Kummanam Rajasekharan said union ministers, Chief Ministers of party-ruled states, MPs, party's national leaders and top leaders of the party's various state units will attend the three-day meeting from September 23. Modi will attend the meeting on September 24 and 25.
The Prime Minister will address a public meeting being organised as part of the national council at Kozhikode Beach Maidan on September 24.
Modi will also inaugurate the birth centenary celebrations of Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyay, former Jan Sangh president, at a special function on September 25, Rajasekharan said.
BJP leaders said Kozhikode was chosen for the national council meeting as Deendayal Upadhayay was elected Jan Sangh president at the party's conclave in that city in December 1967.
Rajasekharan said elaborate arrangements are being made to make the conclave a success.
