Mussoorie: In view of the next year’s Assembly elections, the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party in Uttarakhand began a brainstorming exercise to take stock of the political situation and draw up a concrete action plan to restore the lost confidence of the masses.

On the first day of the two-day state core committee meeting here on Friday, strategies for Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh and Punjab Assembly elections were discussed. However, the election agenda and the political strategies for the forthcoming election in the state dominated the discussions.

Apart from discussing the election strategies, the leaders of the state BJP, in the presence of central leadership, also discussed about the performance of the constituencies in the state ruled by the party.

Party in-charge for elections Rajnath Singh, national general secretary Ram Lal, former election convenor Saudan Singh, state in-charge Thawar Chand Gehlot, national general secretary Dharmendra Pradhan, Chief Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank, MP Tarun Vijay and many party veterans attended the meet.

Interacting with the media, Rajnath Singh said, “In the meeting we discussed strategies for the forthcoming Assembly elections in Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh and Punjab.”

When asked about differences within the state BJP, Singh said, “The coordination within the party is completely intact.” Further, he assured that the party would once again emerge as a winner in the Uttarakhand elections.

The two-day meeting was held in two separate sessions.

After reaching Dehradun on Friday, the senior leader held talks with Chief Minister Nishank and former CMs Bhagat Singh Koshiyari and Bhuwan Chandra Khanduri.
