BJP president Amit Shah to go for ‘reality check’ after results of state polls are declared.
New Delhi: With an eye on the important electoral battle of 2019, BJP president Amit Shah is likely to go on board on a nation-wide tour for a “reality check” of party strength and resolve issues that have been concerning the BJP party. Mr Amit Shah’s tour, sources stated, will take place after the results of upcoming Assembly elections are declared.
It could be recollected that Mr Amit Shah had deputed party’s national general secretaries previous year to get response on party’s “actual strength” in each and every state, even from the BJP-ruled states. Objections had been pouring in from even BJP-ruled states of senior leaders not being reachable, bureaucrats calling the shots, factionalism, one-sidedness and leaders of certain camp within the party getting promoted. Party’s general secretaries, sources stated, also gave these feedback to Mr Amit Shah.
Four national general secretaries, including general secretary (organisation) Ramlal, have been advised to coordinate with the state units and prepare Mr Amit Shah’s tour plan. The BJP president is anticipated to spend an entire day, if required more, with the state leadership. In BJP-ruled states, Mr Shah, sources stated, could hold one-to-one meeting with leaders as lot of objections have been coming on growing factionalism and only certain leaders getting promoted. Expanding the party base along with firming the organisation are one of the focus areas of Mr Shah. Though, fixing problems and taking corrective measures ahead of the 2019 general elections and prepare ground for Assembly elections in individual state, is also the objective of this exercise.
