New Delhi: The BJP is going to hold a two day National Council meeting at Ramlila Maidan from today onwards ahead of the general elections.
Officials from all States, districts and panchayants along with MPs of both Houses, all MLAs, MLCs in States and all Mayors from the BJP across the country are invited to participate in this meeting.
The main agenda of this grand meeting, where around 10,000 party office-bearers from all over the country will participate, is that, as to how the Modi government can again win this elections so that the slogan “Ek baar Phir Modi Sarkar”(Modi Government Once More) will become true.
In adition to this the national council will also discuss and pass resolutions on the economic and political situation in the country. The constitutional amendment to give 10% reservation to the economically backward is the latest move by the party to reach out to its core upper caste vote base, which has been disillusioned for the past few months. This segment of voters was antagonised due to the problems in Goods and Services Tax implementation, demonetisation, lack of job creation, and BJP’s increasing focus on on wooing Dalit and OBC voters. The electoral losses in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh have come as a wake-up call to the party to win back the core voter.
BJP will also discuss about the Ram temple commitment, surgical strike and other issues to whip up nationalist sentiments to defeat the opposition as its development plank may not be sufficient to get it past the winning pole.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will spend most of his time today and tomorrow at Ramlila Maidan and will make the valedictory address to the party tomorrow where a message on not leaving anything to chance in the elections will be given. BJP chief Amit Shah will deliver the inaugural address today in the afternoon.
