BJP to hold meeting with party-ruled States' CMs, Dy CMs

It is not the first occasion when this kind of gathering is taking place.

He said round-the-year elections at one or the other state and consequent enforcement of model code of conduct hampers develomental works.

Addressing a farmers rally in Karnataka, Prime Minister reiterated their welfare is at the core of the Modi's government's policy making.

The 15th assembly polls are due in the state in late April-early May.

The focus is on finding ways and means, finding speedier methods to implement these programs in the BJP-ruled states.

During the previous Congress-led United Progressive Alliance regime at the Centre, Karnataka received only Rs 73,000 crore, while the current BJP-led central government had released Rs 2 lakh crore for the state, Modi said.

People in the poll-bound southern state were dissatisfied and angry with the Congress government and were keen to oust the party from the state, Modi said. "That is the reason now, that in Karnataka instead of seeda Rupaiya business there should be a government that listens to its people and does their work".

However, it remains uncertain whether this will be deliberated or if feedback will be sought by the central leadership from the chief ministers during the meet or on the sidelines. They were also told to focus on seats which the BJP lost in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls. He met farmers ahead of his address there and expressed his delightedness to be able to meet the farmers of the state. The BJP leaders are very optimistic, even sure of dismantling the Left's "invincible" citadel of Tripura and red giving way to shiny saffron and uprooting Congress in Meghalaya. A three-page note on One Nation-One Election has been given to the CMs asking to form committees under the leadership of a senior leader either from government or organisation so that the issue can gain momentum in public discourse. This round of Assembly elections will decide whether the head count of BJP chief ministers will increase or decrease at the next such meeting.

BJP President Amit Shah, on his recent visit to Kalaburagi region, visited the family of a farmer who had committed suicide in that region, along with holding discussions with sugarcane farmers on the budget announcement by the party which draws payment of minimum support price for crops at 1.5 times the cost of production.
