The BJP on Monday launched its own think tank to help the party with research-based literature. To be called Public Policy Research Centre (PPRC), the think tank will conduct research on topics important for the party and come out with documents to counter the onslaught from other institutes, which the party leaders claim are dominated by Leftists and pseudo-seculars.

At a function organised here, the PPRC came out with two documents titled ‘A Fact on Communal Riots in India’ and ‘When Lotus Blooms’ highlighting the differences between the BJP and Congress governments.

The PPRC would be headed by party leader Vinay Sahasrabuddhe, and would have Nalin Kohli and Sumeet Bhasin as members in the board of directors. The think tank was started by former BJP president Nitin Gadkari, who launched it two years ago. After functioning on its own, it became a part of party. The PPRC endeavours to constructively impact the policy formulation mechanism within the BJP.
