BJP executive likely to meet on June 11-12

INDIA-SHAH/ BJP party President Amit Shah

The BJP National Executive is set to meet next month and party president Amit Shah is expected to recast the key decision making body and other frontal organisations before the exercise.

Party sources said the executive may meet on June 11-12.

The meeting will come within three months of the last executive meet held in the national capital on March 19-20.

Though the party's constitution envisages meeting of the executive every three months, the practice is not followed strictly. The last executive meeting had happened almost a year after the previous one in Bengaluru.

The upcoming meeting will have extra significance as Shah is set to rejig the office-bearers before that and the new team will reflect the fresh inner dynamics within the party.

There is the buzz that a reshuffle in the Union Council of Ministers will also take place around the time and some party office bearers and ministers may swap places.

The agenda of the meeting will also be impacted by the results of the ongoing Assembly polls in four states-- Assam, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal, and Union Territory of Puducherry. The counting of votes is scheduled for May 19. BJP expects to win Assam and poll more votes than ever in three other states where it is not a contender for power.

A defeat in Assam will be a huge let down, more so as it will come on the heels of massive losses in Bihar and Delhi assembly polls.

However, a win in Assam will be a big morale booster for the saffron outfit and perk up the organisation ahead of the executive meeting.
