NEW DELHI: Bracing up for the year-end Assembly elections, BJP chief Amit Shah and Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje on Tuesday brainstormed over carrying out organisational changes in the state unit of the party, besides roadmap for the campaign.

Raje will launch a ‘Vikas Yatra’ next month that will be flagged off by PM Narendra Modi and joined by Shah. Shah is learnt to have given the go-ahead to Raje to launch the ‘Vikas Yatra’ in the state.

The newly-appointed Rajasthan BJP chief Madan Lal Saini also took part in the deliberations and presented a detailed report on the poll preparations, sources said.

Shah is learnt to have asked Saini to reconstitute the party’s state unit by giving space to new faces and giving due considerations to caste equations while constituting the new team.

The meeting was attended by BJP vice-president V Satish, organisational secretary Ram Lal, national general secretary Bhupendra Yadav and others.

This was Shah’s third meeting, along with senior Central party members, with Raje and the state unit leaders.

“The meeting was part of the effort to ensure that there are no gaps in organisational planning ahead of the Assembly elections,” said a senior BJP leader.
