NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has called a meeting of BJP parliamentary party executive tomorrow as the government and the ruling party firm up their strategy for the monsoon session of parliament, which is set to be stormy over the opposition demand for the resignation of many party leaders.
The meeting will follow Modi's meet with all the NDA constituents, a first on the session eve, and underlines the government's resolve to put in place a strong defence against the opposition onslaught it is set to face in the session beginning from July 21.
BJP has made it clear that it will not be on the defensive and instead target top Congress leaders over issues like Lalit Modi controversy.
Bracing for the opposition onslaught in Parliament, government and the ruling BJP today decided to aggressively counter the attack on its leaders like Sushma Swaraj, Vasundhara Raje and Shivraj Singh Chouhan and rake up controversies related to Congress leaders.
With Parliament convening on Tuesday for Monsoon session, BJP chief Amit Shah held strategy meetings with various party colleagues, including Union ministers Arun Jaitley, Sushma Swaraj, Smriti Irani, Ravi Shankar Prasad and Piyush Goyal as well as party spokespersons during which Raje, the Chief Minister of Rajasthan, was also present.
Chouhan joined the confabulations later.
Shah along with Jaitley and Singh later also met Modi.
