According to sources, an economic resolution is also likely to be passed today in the meet, which will hail national demonetisation as a ‘brave and bold’ step.
The BJP National Executive meet that will take place in Talkatora Stadium today is being touted to be a clarion call for the 2019 general elections.
PM Modi’s valedictory address to around 2,000 BJP members, including Union ministers, CMs of BJP-ruled states and a host of MPs, MLAs and others, will be the highlight of the conclave.
BJP State President Amit Shah also held a meeting on Sunday on the sidelines of the national executive meet today, that saw several state-incharges, state presidents of BJP and even state general secretaries in attendance.
The meet was scheduled to review the party performance and discuss the road ahead to fulfilling the agendas set and boost the morale of party cadres, among other things.
ON AMIT SHAH’S MEET
BJP general secretary Bhupendra Yadav while speaking to reporters said, “The 50000km tour that Shah took across the country was presented and explained in the meet…”
Highly placed sources have told India Today that West Bengal and Kerala will find prominent mention today in the meet with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Particularly West Bengal because of the ongoing Durga immersion row where the Calcutta High Court also had to intervene to overturn Mamata government’s immersion ban on the day of Muharram.
This, the BJP feels has strengthened the narrative of Mamata indulging in appeasement politics and thus it will be discussed on how to exploit it.
ON ROHINGYA CRISIS
The Government has already called the Rohingya issue, a matter of national security, accusing sections of Rohingya Muslims having links with terror organisations.
The government has submitted an affidavit to this effect in the Supreme Court as well. It is likely to be discussed that how this matter will be explained by party leaders in their electorates.
India Today has learnt that an economic resolution is also likely to be passed which is going to hail ‘demonetisation’ as a brave and bold’ step to bring the economy of the country on the right track.
It is likely to credit Narendra Modi for the move accepting that the fruits will be seen in the long run.
This move becomes extremely significant considering that the Modi government has been at the receiving end from opposition parties over the dwindling GDP and job losses which are believed to be the byproducts of demonetisation.
