PM Modi May Break Silence On Economy At National Executive Meet Today

Although the national executive is usually attended only by members or special invitees, the BJP this time has chose to call all elected representatives - 1,400 MLAs across the country, 337 MPs and MLCs in addition to all important and core group members from across States.

The two top leaders of the party, Narendra Modi and Amit Shah, will discuss about different schemes that have been launched by the BJP government since coming to power in 2014 and plan to propagate them to reach out to the entire mass of the country.

The political resolution in the national executive is likely to assert that the economy has been doing better under the NDA than it did under the previous UPA government. The party national executive is expected to pass resolutions on political and economic issues and will bring out a road map of the government for the next one and half year.

The PM is likely to speak on how the welfare measures undertaken by his government and initiatives like demonetisation and goods and services tax have benefited the country.

Besides party's central office-bearers, all state Bharatiya Janata Party Presidents and General Secretaries (Organisation) attended Sunday's meeting. Shah will also take stock of the Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Vistarak Campaign, and explain to delegates how to go about expanding the party that already boasts of being the largest political outfit with more than 11 crore members.

Yadav said that the "New India" and "Swachhta" resolves would also be taken forward. "The government is relentlessly working in the interests of the poor".

The rollout of GST has been described by the party as a major success of the government, which the BJP intends to assert, will integrate the country's economy.

Coming on the occasion of the birth centenary of Sangh Parivar icon Deendayal Upadhyay, the prime minister's announcement may seek to address concerns from many quarters as the growth was shown at a three-year low of 5.7% in the first quarter of 2017-18, they said.
