New Delhi, May 25: Stung by the loss in the Karnataka Assembly elections, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) top leadership will go in a huddle with chief ministers of the party-ruled states to take stock of the political situations in the country, as well as sizing up challenges posed by the Congress’ entitlement-based guarantees to the development agenda of the party.

Sources said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi may also attend the meeting with the chief ministers of the BJP-ruled states on Sunday at the party headquarters. The BJP has regularly been holding a brainstorming session with the chief ministers of the party-ruled states where the success stories are shared, as well as new narrative is set with eye on the elections.
The CM’s conference within the BJP since the onset of the Covis-19 pandemic has been much focused on the ‘Garib Kalyan’ agenda, and the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojna was given a major push during the pandemic. Now, the BJP-ruled states have task on hand to take lessons from the loss of the party in Karnataka and act accordingly, added the sources.      

The chief ministers of the most states will be in the national capital to attend the Governing Council meeting of the NITI Aayog on Saturday, which again is likely to enlist the support of the state governments for the economic milestones in the next fears that the government is aiming for such as becoming the fourth largest economy by 2028.

The BJP-ruled chief ministers are being asked by the party for the past few months that they should aim for saturation of the Central schemes. Now that the PM Garib Kalyan Anna Yojna has been merged with the National Food Security Act, the BJP also is facing the challenge of the Opposition promising higher quota of grains with new scheme as was done by the Congress in Karnataka where the party had promised 10 kg free rice per month.    

With the BJP aiming to make a push for maximizing the base among the beneficiary class who have taken the benefits of the schemes, the party-ruled states will be asked to make their ‘Good Governance Model’ visible to the people. As part of the exercise, sources said, the BJP workers and local influencers will be taken for conducted tour in each of the Lok Sabha constituency in the party-ruled states to show the achievements of the government.
