NEW DELHI: The BJP’s top brass today reviewed preparations for a two-day meeting of the party’s national executive that will discuss issues ranging from the quota row to the UPA’s two years in office to the party’s own showing in recent assembly elections.

Former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee drove down to the party’s Ashoka Road office here for a meeting with BJP chief Rajnath Singh, senior leader L K Advani and party general secretaries ahead of the national executive.

Earlier in the day, Singh met leaders of all the BJP’s 27 cells that briefed him on their activities.

As part of his efforts to improve coordination within the organisation, the BJP chief and his party colleagues Sanjay Joshi and Bal Apte decided to call a meeting of all party cells every two months.

“The cells have been asked to keep track of all policies and programmes of the government and help the BJP form its strategy and reaction to the functioning of the government,” party spokesman Prakash Javadekar said.

The BJP is also scheduled to hold a separate meeting tomorrow of its state organising secretaries as it makes final preparations for the national executive.

The executive meeting, Javadekar told reporters here, would also review the party’s own showing in the recent assembly elections in five states.

Vajpayee, Advani and Singh will make their observations on Tuesday before wrapping up the meeting.

Javadekar announced that the party would hold a “Telangana Vishwasghaat Diwas” rally at Mehboob Nagar in Andhra Pradesh on June 2.
