NEW DELHI: As the initial volley of anti-CAA protests in the national capital seems to be waning after Prime Minister Narendra Modi's claim that there is no talk of NRC at Sunday's BJP rally here, the BJP went into a huddle on the matter on Thursday on how to swing the public perception on CAA in its favour.

The closed-door meeting that is on at BJP headquarters in Delhi is being chaired by BJP's working president J.P. Nadda. The meeting was also attended by BJP National General Secretary (organisation) B.L. Santosh, Union ministers Prahlad Patel, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, Kiren Rijiju, Arjun Ram Meghwal and Gajendra Singh Shekhawat. The inclusion of its Ladakh MP Jamyang Tsering Namgyal, a vocal new leader from the minority community who has articulated the party's position on abrogation of Article 370, has been tactical.

Party MPs like Rajeev Chandrasekhar and G.V.L. Narasimha Rao who are also popular on social media with a sizeable following are part of the huddle.

The BJP's agenda of Thursday's closed-door meeting is to finetune it's stand on the contentious Citizenship Amendment Act to make it more convincing. The meeting is likely to give specific responsibilities to those in attendance, to take forward the party's stand to the masses.
