The BJP is deploying over 15 lakh party workers, who would be trained to reach out to people and spread the message of good work being done by the Modi government. Another mass contact programme being planned is to dispel myths and propaganda on land acquisition bill and engage farmers in dialogue. 

The contours of these two huge programmes are likely to be discussed at the two-day Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national executive meeting that began in Bengaluru on Friday. The conclave will also discuss an action plan for several crucial state elections like Bihar and West Bengal this year.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP president Amit Shah, senior leaders LK Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi are among those attending the session being held in Congress ruled state of Karnataka.

The party said the meeting holds significance as the BJP has emerged as the largest political party in the world.

BJP General Secretary P Muralidhar Rao said the party would brainstorm over the land bill issue and will also come out with a nationwide outreach to publicise the good works of the government when it completes one year in power next month.

“There will be a discussion over the land bill.The opposition has spread various myths and propaganda about it. We will go to people against it.Industrialisation is necessary and we do not see any conflict between the industry and agriculture.We are making farmers a stake-holder and their interest would not be compromised,” he told reporters.

BJP leadership, he noted, had already made it clear that it was willing to talk to opposition parties and farmers and consider bringing changes in the bill.

“We want to talk with an open mind,” he said.

The question that whether senior leader L K Advani will address the delegates or not continues to loom large as Rao said he would be present throughout the two-day meet being attended by over 111 national executive members besides a host of special invitees, including chief ministers of party-run states and its state presidents.

“He has come here and will be present throughout. He is always there to guide us,” he said, evading a direct reply.

Advani’s valedictory address has been a customary fixture in the national executive meetings barring the one in Goa in 2013 which he had skipped in apparent protest against the elevation of Modi as the party’s campaign committee head ahead of the Lok Sabha elections in 2014.
