New Delhi: BJP will chalk out a road-map for evolving its strategy to project itself as an alternative in the next general elections, at the meeting of its National Executive and National Council starting Saturday.
While the BJP National Executive will hold a closed-door meeting Saturday, its National Council, a broader body having members from across the country, will hold its two-day meeting on Saturday and Sunday.
The conclave is crucial as it will be the first such meeting after the election of Rajnath Singh as party chief.
During the next three days, the party leadership will discuss a host of issues including the internal security situation in the wake of Hyderabad blasts, scams including the VVIP chopper deal, economic slowdown and Indo-Pak ties.
The BJP National Executive and Council will also examine details of how to take on the UPA government by highlighting its "failures" on the economic and security front.
Sources said significant decisions like appointment of the new team of central office-bearers and elevation of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and his Madhya Pradesh counterpart Shivraj Singh Chouhan to the Central Parliamentary Board are likely to take place after the conclave.
These issues are likely to come up for discussion informally during the meet, sources said.
BJP Vice-President Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said the meeting will start with the address of party president Rajnath Singh and will discuss the economic, social and political issues of the country.
Naqvi said the national executive and nation council meetings will have four and nine sessions, respectively. "In three days of the meeting we will discuss the strategy for upcoming elections with the motto 'Sushasan sankalp BJP vikalp' (BJP is promise to good governance).
