Mail Today - - SPECIAL REPORT - By Mail To­day Bureau in New Delhi

THE (BJP) has be­gun pre­par­ing roadmap for the 2019 Lok Sabha elec­tions. The party has set a tar­get of reach­ing out to 22 crore peo­ple in the next three months. Ad­dress­ing the na­tional ex­ec­u­tive meet­ing of all seven wings of the party, PM Naren­dra Modi and Amit Shah stressed on con­nect­ing to all marginal­ized sec­tions of the so­ci­ety ahead of the elec­tions.

This, sources said, aimed at re­ject­ing the op­po­si­tion’s charges of the BJP be­ing anti-Dalit, an­timi­nor­ity, anti-farm­ers and anti-women. The two lead­ers also asked the heads of these cells to ad­dress the grievances of peo­ple and also seek their sug­ges­tions so that the party could find ways to ad­dress them.

This is the first such meet­ing where Modi and Shah ad­dressed the na­tional ex­ec­u­tive of all seven wings of the BJP. A se­nior party leader said the ex­er­cise would help BJP tone up its or­gan­i­sa­tional struc­ture in run up to the next Lok Sabha polls. The meet­ing was at­tended by na­tional ex­ec­u­tive mem­bers of the party's Mahila Mor­cha, Mi­nor­ity Mor­cha, SC and ST Mor­cha, Yuva Mor­cha, Kisan Mor­cha, and OBC Mor­cha. Ear­lier on Mon­day, Shah held a meet­ing with all BJP state chiefs.
