NEW DELHI: Chief Ministers of the BJP ruled states will make presentations on the their best and innovative schemes while giving a report card of work done in their tenure before the party leadership here on Saturday. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will also be present during the meeting convened by BJP chief Amit Shah.
Aimed at strengthening the party structure in the states and look for solutions in the governance bottlenecks, sources said the meeting would document good practices which can then be replicated elsewhere in the country. This meeting comes in the heels of the meeting of BJP core groups whose purpose was to bring uniformity in the party functioning.
The meeting would be held at the Madhya Pradesh Bhawan in national capital, which has emerged as centre of high powered meetings. Both Modi and Shah are expected to address the CMs, are likely to remind that BJP’s governance focus should stay on the “pro-poor and pro-development.”
As the progress of the BJP states are also likely to play a role in the way people are likely to perceive the party during the 2019 elections, both Shah and Modi are keen that states align themselves with the Centre’s welfare schemes and models so that benefits start flowing at the grass roots, sources said.
After this meeting, there will be a meeting of the BJP and the RSS bigwigs to arrive at better coordination on key issues like dalits, cow protection, economic reforms, national security and nationalism.
As the BJP is pushing for aggressive nationalism, it feels that recent tiranga yatra has been well received and revived the people’s confidence in the party, which is likely to give dividends during the upcoming state elections.
