New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party office bearers meeting is scheduled at the party office in New Delhi at 4 pm on Thursday to discuss their strategy for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. The meeting will be chaired by party President Rajnath Singh.

The meeting will be followed by a three-day brainstorming session from January 17, where top BJP leaders from across the country will be present.

After top party leaders attend the day-long national executive meeting, party workers from across the country are expected to attend the two-day national council meeting at Ramlila Maidan.

BJP Vice President Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said the three-day national executive and council meetings will discuss issues related to social, political, economic, national security and internal security. "It will have a detailed discussion on the success of 'mission good governance' under the leadership of Narendra Modi in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections," he said.

The party will bring two resolutions - a political and an economic and an assessment of Congress-led UPA government's performance.

Sources said while the political resolution will focus on the "mis-governance" under UPA government hit by a series of scams and present itself as a strong alternative to the Congress at the Centre, it will also focus on neighbouring countries, foreign policy, internal security and corruption.

The economic resolution will focus on the "poor" state of the economy under UPA regime which has "hampered" growth and investment in the country. While highlighting the "bad" policies and inflation under UPA that harmed the business community, farmers and the labour class, the BJP will put forth its own vision to help India emerge as an economic power and restart the investment and growth cycle.

Naqvi said the national executive meeting will begin at 11 am at NDMC Convention Centre and the national council meeting will start at 10 am the next day and conclude on January 19 evening.

The Council Meeting will begin with the speech of BJP President Rajnath Singh, followed by speeches by party veteran LK Advani and BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.

Leaders of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley besides former presidents Murli Manohar Joshi, M Venkaiah Naidu and Nitin Gadkari will also put forth their views. BJP-ruled state chief ministers Shivraj Singh Chauhan, Vasundhra Raje Scindia, Raman Singh and Manohar Parrikar will also be present.

All office-bearers at the national and state level, besides MPs, MLAs, MLCs upto district presidents and general secretaries, mayors and deputy mayors besides in-charge of all Lok Sabha constituencies will also be present.
