BJP national meet amid Varun Gandhi posters conflict : PM Modi, Amit to devise strategy for Uttar Pradesh Polls

The two-day national executive meeting  of the Bharatiya Janata Party  began in Allahabad on Sunday where Prime Minister Narendra Modi, party president Amit Shah, senior members of the Union Cabinet, Chief Ministers of the BJP-ruled states and members of Parliament are giving final touches  to the party strategy for Uttar Pradesh assembly polls that are due next year.
But the main talking point ahead of the BJP conclave is the large hoardings on streets of the city  showing  large posters of Sultanpur MP Varun Gandhi  that reflects  a growing conflict within the party over who would be its face in state elections early next year as Amit Shaha posters were comparatively short in size. .
Prime Minister Modi and party president Shah will inaugurate the session, post which, Shah will address the inaugural session. The BJP president will also convene the inaugural session of the national office bearers’ meeting.
Sultanpur MP Varun Gandhi was dropped from the team of office bearers when Amit Shah became BJP President in 2014 and now  again Gandhi ‘s comeback on several hoardings and posters flashed across the city  gave rise to a conflict within the party.

The executives are likely to adopt the party’s strategy for the assembly elections in the most populous state of India besides highlighting the achievements of the Modi government in the last two years and the alleged corruption of the Samajwadi Party government in Uttar Pradesh.

The two-day conclave is likely to pass a political and an economic resolution, the latter focussing on agriculture.

“There is goonda raj in Uttar Pradesh under Akhilesh Yadav. The cocktail politics of Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party, Congress and Rashtriya Lok Dal have ruined the state,” BJP national secretary Srikant Sharma told IANS.

“We will be giving a call to end this goonda raj,” he added.
