NEW DELHI: In line with the BJP going into overdrive for the assembly elections scheduled till next year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party chief Amit Shah will Monday brainstorm with chief ministers of BJP-ruled states to finetune the development agenda of the respective governments.
The third such meeting after the NDA came to power at the Centre will specifically discuss the progress in taking the party’s “Garib Kalyan” agenda as articulated in the BJP national council meeting at Kozhikode last year.
With Gujarat, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh being the high stake states where the saffron outfit would vie to beat the anti-incumbency factor in the assembly elections, Monday’s conclave will review the progress of specific areas of work given to the chief ministers in the last meeting, including the Garib Kalyan agenda.
Incidentally, the BJP chief has also begun holding meetings with ministers of BJP-ruled states during his visits where he reportedly seeks a record of good governance and development.
With the BJP seeking to go on an overdrive in preparations for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Shah is likely to share strategies with the chief ministers for their execution.
