Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be addressing all the 13 BJP chief ministers on Sunday evening and he is probably to discuss on the agenda of focusing on “good governance and development”. This meeting will be attended by party chief Amit Shah and other top Union ministers. Besides the 13 CMs, the meeting will also be attended by the five deputy chief ministers and Union ministers like Rajnath Singh, Nitin Gadkari, Sushma Swaraj and M Venkaiah Naidu.
This meeting will also be the second such meeting which will incorporate all the party chief ministers with Modi since he came to power in 2014 said BJP general secretary Bhupender Yadav.
This meeting is viewed as a part of PM Modi’s drive to ensure that his governance agenda is more focused on the public discourse and counters all the opposition parties’ attack on his government over a number of issues.
The objective of the meeting will also include the need for the party to focus on development-oriented agendas with an emphasis on the poor sections of the society. Keen to ensure that development agenda is not overshadowed by other factors in the upcoming polls and with Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh going in for assembly polls later this year; Sunday’s meeting is also expected to focus on issues concerning the poll-bound states.
The chief ministers will be meeting with Modi and Shah after their deliberations at the Niti Ayog on the same day.
A similar meet was held last August.
