Delhi to host BJP’s national executive meet in Jan ’17
Bharatiya Janata Party will hold its national executive meeting on January 7 and 8, 2017, in the national Capital. The decision has been taken by the party in view of Assembly polls in five states, especially in all-important Punjab, Uttarakhand and UP, observers feel.
As the 2017 UP elections are being considered as the semi-finals ahead of the grand finale of 2019 Lok Sabha elections, BJP president Amit Shah and the Sangh parivar are working on their strategy to polarise Hindu votes while keeping focus on development and caste issues. Shah also elaborated his strategy in one of his statements that “every polarisation produces counter polarisation and BJP will benefit from it”, just like in Assam. Even when all secular parties have announced their CM candidates, BJP has decided to conduct a survey to select its face in different states.
In Punjab, the state is witnessing new political twists and turns. A concerted push by the AAP and plans to forge a fourth front have added to the political drama. In Uttarakhand, the party’s determined bid to topple the Congress has added significance to the ongoing churning.BJP is also being seen carrying out mass campaigns against respective governments in most of these states.
