The meeting will also review the ongoing welfare schemes. The BJP is keen on positioning itself as a pro-poor party ahead of the Lok Sabha elections.

Discussions on holding simultaneous polls too would be on the agenda.

The national general secretary of the BJP had written to all the CMs of the BJP ruled states to arrive at a consensus on one nation one election. They have also been told to convince the opposition to come on board.

This development comes in the wake of speculation that the Lok Sabha elections may be advanced. The Prime Minister, Narendra Modi too has been pitching for this concept. He said that the development momentum would be lost on account of frequent elections.
