Delhi: PM Modi's mega roadshow ahead of BJP’s National Executive Committee meet today
BJP’s national executive meeting is being held in Delhi on January 16 and 17. The meeting will be attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh and party president JP Nadda, including all general secretaries, chief ministers of BJP-ruled states, all state presidents and other officials. Before this two-day meeting, the BJP will also hold a mega roadshow of PM Modi in Delhi on Monday. This roadshow will be taken out from Patel Chowk to Parliament Street.
This meeting of BJP is also important because just a week after the start of the meeting, the term of party president JP Nadda is coming to an end. However, there is only about a year left for the Lok Sabha elections, so there is a high possibility that Nadda may be given an extension till 2024. At the same time, according to the rules of the BJP constitution, Nadda is likely to get an extension.
Strategy not to tamper with the organisation in view of elections
One of the important reasons for extending the term of the party president is the elections to 9 state assemblies to be held at the end of this year. At the same time, elections are expected to be held in Jammu and Kashmir between May and June. If there is no consensus on JP Nadda’s name for any reason, then Bhupendra Yadav’s name is at the forefront of the race. At the same time, there is every possibility of Gujarat BJP President CR Patil getting important responsibility at the Centre.

Nadda can be 3rd leader to become President for 2nd time in a row
If Nadda gets the responsibility of the Speaker again, he could be the third leader after LK Advani and Amit Shah to get a second consecutive term. However, Rajnath Singh also became the party president twice, but his tenure was not continuous.
Changes in organisation of electoral states can be approved
In 2023, assembly elections are to be held in 9 states of the country. These include big states like Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Karnataka and Telangana. On the other hand, elections will be held in Tripura, Meghalaya, Nagaland and Mizoram in the Northeast this year. There are full chances of elections in Jammu and Kashmir this year itself. Necessary changes can be approved in the meeting for the purpose of tightening the organisation of these states. Also new faces can get a chance.
