Top BJP Meet Today To Take On United Opposition

By Preeti Sigh On 08 Sep, 2018

The Bharatiya Janata Party or BJP is meeting this afternoon to discuss and strategise its response to attacks on its government by a united opposition. The national party meeting, which will be headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah, aims to work out the strategy to counter the opposition's criticism on issues like rise in fuel prices and diminishing value of the Rupee. It will also plan the roadmap for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections as well as the upcoming assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, and Telangana. The two-day meeting will be attended by its key leaders from all states and Union territories besides its national leadership. It comes against the backdrop of signs of unrest among upper castes, a core support base of the party, over its push for pro-Scheduled Caste laws to cater to the demands of the community. BJP president Amit Shah inaugurated the meeting of its national office bearers today, which will be followed by the national meeting this afternoon. He will give the inaugural address while Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to give the concluding speech tomorrow. The ruling party is likely to highlight the central government's steps for "social justice" and "economic successes" besides its schemes aimed at empowering the poor. Significantly, it has chosen the Ambedkar International Centre, which works to promote the works and ideas of Scheduled Caste icon BR Ambedkar, for hosting the meeting, a symbolism for its Scheduled Caste outreach. However, it will have to do a balancing act as groups claiming to represent the upper castes, its core vote bank, have been protesting the government's decision to restore the original and stringent provisions of a law on atrocities against Scheduled Castes and tribals, after the Supreme Court had relaxed those. Upper caste groups had called a "Bharat Bandh" on Thursday.
