Two days after the completion of voting in the Karnataka Assembly Elections, a meeting of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national office bearers and state presidents began on Monday. Organisational and political issues, along with preparations for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections were discussed in the meeting. 

Party president Amit Shah is chairing the meeting being held at the headquarters of the party’s 6 A, Deendayal Upadhyay Marg, while the organisation’s General Secretary Ramlal is operating it. Prior to the meeting, Shah and other leaders placed a wreath on the portrait of Mother India, Pt Deendayal Upadhyay and Dr Syama Prasad Mookerjee.

According to sources, the meeting will discuss organisational and political issues, preparations for the party for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections and Assembly Elections that are slated to take place in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, and Rajasthan by the end of this year. The BJP is in power in all the three states. 

The next big meeting on the BJP’s calendar would be the National Working Committee meeting which is slated to take place in June. There will be a decision on the venue of the meeting whose concluding session will be addressed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Sources said that on May 17 a meeting of the National Executives of all the seven wings of the party is being organised. After the Karnataka Assembly Elections, the party’s top leadership is now gearing up for the upcoming political contest without taking any break, they added. 

Counting to the Karnataka Assembly Elections will take place on Tuesday. Various exit polls have given mixed predictions. Some have predicted that the BJP will form the next government and some said that the Congress will touch the magic number of 113 seats.
