GUWAHATI, Jan 5 � The national executive of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), to be held for the first time in Guwahati from January 8, is poised to get added importance this time with the State getting ready for the Assembly elections.
The election bugle will be sounded in this two-day national executive which will see all the senior leaders, including LK Advani, Rajnath Singh and party president Nitin Gadkari landing in Guwahati. The meet will discus several issues related to the political and economic situation in the State.
Interacting with media persons here on Wednesday, national general secretary of the party Vijay Goel said that the national executive of the party has become important for all as the resolutions adopted in the meet will have impact on the election preparedness of the party.
It needs to be mentioned here that around 350 delegates of the party from across the country is slated to attend the meet that will begin from 11 am at Hotel Brahmaputra Ashok here. A rally has been scheduled on January 9 from 1 pm at the Veterinary Ground, Khanapara while the other programmes include cultural events, sight seeing and exhibitions. What is interesting about the exhibitions is that this one will display all the scams in the country right to the multi-crore rupee NC Hills scam. Another exhibition will showcase the positive aspect of politics and governance in the BJP-ruled States.
Goel, while briefing about the forthcoming meet, said that the issue of Bangladeshi influx will be discussed at length by the delegates. �It is a matter of great concern that there has been an abnormal increase in the number of voters in the last few decades in Assam, thereby threatening the indigenous people of the State," said Goel adding that the party has already approached the Chief Election Commissioner of India with the prayer to delete the names of the illegal Bangladeshis from the Voters List of Assam.
"The Chief Election Commissioner has assured us that the issue of illegal Bangladeshis in the Voters List of Assam would be taken up," said Goel.
Goel said that the other issues that would come up in the meet would include corruption, price rise, etc.
