Home Minister and BJP President Amit Shah is all set to meet BJP National Office Bearers and State Unit Chiefs on June 13th. This will the first such meeting after BJP's sweep in the recently held General Elections.
This meeting is being seen as a key one where Shah is expected to laydown road map for upcoming Assembly elections in some states. This meet is also expected to set in motion the selection of Shah's successor for the BJP President's post.
Though his three-year term as BJP chief had ended earlier this year, Mr. Shah was again asked to continue the same position to conduct organizational elections to focus on Lok Sabha polls.
BJP tasted a massive victory in the general election, bagging 303 seats in the 543-member Lok Sabha, where Shah played a key role. Shah also held separate meetings with core group members of Maharashtra, Jharkhand and Haryana party units to discuss on the BJP's strategies in assembly poll-bound states.
As informed by one of the party leaders, the polls can take three-four months’ time to elect a national president. It is also clear that Mr. Shah may not continue as the party president as he was selected as Home Minister by PM. However, there is no official statement from regarding BJP on Shah’s move. JP Nadda and Bhupender Yadav are currently seen as the top contenders for the post.
