The two-day Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) national executive meeting will begin in the national capital on Sunday, September 24.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is most likely to eliminate concerns over the state of economy and lay down his government’s economic and political agenda in the national executive meeting.

On the first day of the meeting, party’s national office-bearers, including its President Amit Shah, state chiefs and other key organisational leaders will carry discussion over various issues, including resolutions to be taken up during the national executive meet.

More than 2,000 delegates will attend what has been described by senior party leaders as an “extended national executive” to mark the end of a year-long exercise to commemorate the birth anniversary of BJP ideologue Deendayal Upadhyaya.

PM Modi is most likely to use his valedictory address on Monday to highlight his government’s pro-poor measures and policy decisions.

Modi’s address is also expected to shape the BJP’s discourse in the winter session of Parliament and its approach for the coming Assembly polls in key states Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh.

Since the opposition parties have been lately attacking the Modi government’s handling of the economy by citing the fall in GDP rate and demonetisation figures, rise in fuel prices, PM is likely oppose them by emphasising on the government’s achievements like successfully being able to curb black money, said party sources.

However, roll-out of the GST has been described as a major victory of the BJP government.

Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi has been constantly targeting and attacking the Modi government in over economy issues during his US visit.

According to sources, the Rohingya issue might be addressed in the meeting as well. The government had termed Rohingya immigrants as a threat to the nation.

As per BJP leaders, the economic resolution is likely to state that the economy is doing better under the NDA than it did under the previous UPA government.
