BJP national president Amit Shah will arrive in Jammu Thursday on a two day visit to review party’s preparations for 2019 Parliamentary elections with party top brass in the state.

Shah, who is visiting the state after the BJP pulled out from the coalition government in the state, will hold also an all-important meeting with top brass of the state unit of the RSS.

The BJP has chosen the death anniversary of Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee, the party ideologue, for Shah’s visit and to kick start its campaign for 2019 Parliamentary elections.

“The meeting with Amit Shah has been fixed from Delhi and we have been communicated that it will be held in the afternoon,” RSS prant Karyavah (general secretary) Parshotam Dedeechi told Greater Kashmir.

He said that the prevailing political situation in the state, particularly after BJP pulled itself out of the coalition, will be discussed in the meeting.

“The closed door meeting will be held between Amit Shah, Parshotam Dedeechi and prant sangchalak (state RSS chief) Brig Suchet Singh, during which the RSS leaders will brief the BJP national president about the ground situation in the state besides discussing the future strategy for 2019 Parliamentary elections,” well placed sources in the Sangh told Greater Kashmir.

Most of the decisions taken by the BJP in the state are based on the feedback provided by the RSS. 

Meanwhile, the state unit of the BJP has also been asked to prepare a “report card regarding status and the progress achieved under various organisational programmes undertaken by the party right from the booth and mandal level,” party insiders said.

They said, “The state unit has also been tasked to prepare a report about the status of various centrally sponsored schemes, their implementation and the number of beneficiaries.”

Details are being gathered and detailed report will be presented to Amit Shah, BJP state press secretary Dr Pardeep Malhotra said.

Shah will also hold separate meetings with the state office bearers and the core group of the BJP which comprises of general secretaries, Members of Parliament (MPs), state president and former state presidents.

Shah is scheduled to arrive in Jammu at around 10:30 am. A rally will be taken out by the BJYM from airport to guest house to welcome the national president.

Later, Shah will address a public rally opposite Braham Sabha, Parade Ground. 

He will be also meeting with the state election management committee to discuss future course of action.

Shah will leave for Delhi on Sunday morning.
