Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday held a meeting with top BJP leaders, including party chief Amit Shah, in which they deliberated over a host of organisational issues and took stock of the current political situation. Though, BJP continued its winning run in the recently held assembly polls in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh, its tally in the former has been speculated as cause of concern.

The meeting, which was held at the prime minister’s official 7 Lok Kalyan Marg residence, lasted more than three hours and was attended by all BJP general secretaries.

Though the leaders didn’t elaborate on the minutes of meeting, a senior BJP leader said organisational issues were discussed at length at the meeting.

The meeting comes as the BJP gears up to fight a number of assembly polls, including the key election to the Karnataka Assembly in April-May and the Modi government readies to present its final full-fledged budget.

Government will present its last full-fledged budget on February 1 as the Lok Sabha polls are due to be held next year in April-May.

Besides Karnataka, elections are to be held in Tripura and Meghalaya in March and in four states – Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Mizoram – later this year.
