BJP National Executive meet begins today
The BJP National Executive will meet here for two days starting on Saturday ahead of assembly polls in five states and amid rising temperatures over issues like nationalism and quota agitations in some states ruled by the party.
Top party brass, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Amit Shah and senior leaders and ministers, will participate in the deliberations in which political and economic resolutions will be adopted, sources said.
The “pro-poor and pro-village” budget will be at the centre of the economic resolution, they said.
Shah will deliver the inaugural speech while Modi will deliver the valedictory address.
Sources added that the “disinformation” campaign by Congress to “defame” the government, the Ishrat Jahan and JNU rows besides the budget features will be the key issues on the agenda. “The opposition, especially Congress, has been exposed in the last 20 months over a host of issues, be it returning of awards by a section of intelligentsia or JNU row where it chose to side with anti-national forces. These will come up for discussion,” a party leader said.
