32

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah will chair a meeting at the party headquarters in Delhi on December 13 to discuss the electoral setback in recently held assembly elections in five states.

The part will likely plan the agenda for the 2019 General Elections during the meeting.

The state presidents and in-charges of BJP will be present in the meeting which will start at 2 pm today and is likely to continue for seven hours.

The Congress party registered a nerve-wracking victory over the BJP in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan. In Madhya Pradesh, where Shivraj Singh Chouhan is seeking a fourth term, is the biggest prize in these polls for the Congress party.

In Madhya Pradesh, the Congress emerged as the single largest party with 114 elected candidates as opposed to their rival’s 109 and roped in seven legislators from Bahujan Samaj Party (2), Samajwadi Party (1) and independent candidates (4), to cross the halfway mark.

Even in Maoist-hit Chhattisgarh, Congress has established a big lead over the BJP and garnered the numbers to form the government.
