Tomorrow, at 9:30 AM, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is set to hold a significant meeting of its parliamentary party. This gathering, part of a routine in political parties, particularly during parliamentary sessions, is expected to discuss a variety of political and legislative matters.
Such meetings are quintessential for sustaining party discipline and unity in legislative manoeuvres.
Regular BJP Parliamentary Meetings
The BJP's parliamentary party, comprising all its Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha members, generally convenes every week during the session. In these meetings, key figures of the BJP, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, address various issues pertinent to the parliamentary agenda, as well as to the party's organisational and political campaigns. The objective is to ensure that the party's members of parliament remain aligned with the BJP's policies and directives.
Recent Assembly Polls Victories
This week's meeting holds additional significance, as it follows the BJP's sweeping victories in three state assembly polls. The party managed to oust the Congress from power in Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh, while successfully countering anti-incumbency to retain power in Madhya Pradesh. The meeting is likely to see the felicitation of Prime Minister Narendra Modi for spearheading the party to these substantial wins.
Suspense on New Chief Ministers
Amidst the euphoria of the electoral victories, there is palpable suspense regarding the appointment of the new chief ministers for Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, and Rajasthan. Two days post their victory in the assembly elections, the BJP has yet to announce the names of central observers or reveal any potential chief ministerial candidates, keeping their cards close to their chest.
