NEW DELHI: The BJP national council, the largest body of the party, is expected to meet next month to mark the 100th birth anniversary of its ideologue Deen Dayal Upadhyaya on September 25.
Party sources said the meeting was likely to be held between September 23-25 in the national capital.
Besides the top national and state-level leaders of the party, the council includes hundreds of members from across the country.
The saffron party had launched a year-long programme last year, during its national council meeting in Kozhikode, Kerala, to mark Upadhyaya's birth centenary.
The last year's BJP national council meet was also held between September 23-25.
Led by party chief Amit Shah, who has embarked on a 110day nationwide tour, the BJP has been working to strengthen its organisation and take the Modi government's welfare schemes to the masses.
The government, too, has been on an overdrive with Prime Minister Narendra Modi underlining its commitment to the poor at party and public forums and asking the partymen to publicise it among the masses.
Upadhyaya's philosophy of 'antyodaya' (uplift of the last man in queue) has emerged as the driving agenda of the government and the party under Modi and Shah respectively.
The BJP national council meet will come ahead of the Assembly polls in Gujarat, Karnataka and Himachal Pradesh and the party's top brass is likely to lay out the future political course for the organisation.
