BJP state executive meet from today

BJP National President Rajnath Singh, who arrived in Bangalore on Friday night, will inaugurate the meet. The State executive has not met for the last one year. This will be the last exeuctive committee to be chaired by State Party president D V Sadananda Gowda as his term will conclude in October this year. During his stay in Bangalore, Singh is also meeting ministers and legislators. He is likely to collect views on the affairs of the party and functioning of the government.

Singh is likely to gather information on the the simmering cold war between Chief Minister Yeddyurappa and the Reddy brothers. A section of legislators in the party are planning to once again raise the issue of constitution of a core-committee to decide on matters of governance and appointments. Sources said, even after the two-day meeting, no major developments are expected as the present focus is on the bypolls.

Election strategy

The party will finalise its strategy for the bypolls at the meeting. The BJP is making all efforts to further consolidate its position in the Lower House. Ministers have already been given incharge responsibilities for poll management in the five constituencies.

Discussion on strategy for panchayat polls (scheduled for December) and various cooperative bodies (on-going) are also on the agenda. The party is gearing up to hold organisation poll from September culminating with the appointment of a new state president in November.
