NEW DELHI: After registering a major victory in the local body and Zilla Panchayat polls, the quarterly National Executive meeting of the BJP will be held in Bhubaneshwar on April 15-16. Besides all chief ministers of the BJP ruled states, the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the party chief Amit Shah would attend the two days deliberations, which would set the tone for the expansion of the saffron outfit in new areas.

The BJP national general secretary Arun Singh will be visiting the Odisha capital on Sunday to oversee the preparations of the National Executive meeting. The last such meeying was held in the national capital. The BJP is sensing good prospects in Odisha for its expansion plans in the next general elections in 2019 and the Assembly polls in the same year.

After bagging four out of five states, which went to polls, the BJP leaders are upbeat for making presence felt in areas seen weak for the saffron outfit. After bagging Manipur, the BJP is banking on Odisha to get further foothold in the eastern regions of the country.

With the BJP having dedicated this year for Garib Kalyan as part of the centenary celebrations of the birth anniversary of the party ideologue Deen Dayal Upadhyay, the national executive committee meeting will have presentations by all the party ruled state chief ministers on pro-poor welfares measures being undertaken by them. The meeting is likely to adopt political and economic resolutions during the two days long deliberations by the party leaders.
