Unconquered South, N-E high on BJP plans, aims to win 80 seats in 2019

The RSS cadre will play a key role in BJP's poll strategies too. BJP aims to win 80 seats from TS, AP and N-E in 2019.

New Delhi: With the Karnataka shadow looming over the BJP, coupled with the rise of the regional parties, the worried saffron party’s poll strategy for the coming electoral battle of 2019 will be centered around winning seats in non-BJP ruled states like West Bengal, Odisha, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala and also in the North-East, where the party could not make a significant impact the last time.

The party, which is confident of winning the next Lok Sabha elections, has set the target of winning at least 80 Lok Sabha seats from these states in 2019.

As the Modi government and the BJP get ready for celebrating the NDA government’s fourth anniversary, the RSS has decided to hold a four-day long samiksha baithak (review meeting) with the party leadership, including Central ministers, to gauge the impact of Modi government’s schemes and the BJP’s organisational strength. Representatives of other Sangh Parivar affiliates will also attend the meeting.

RSS top brass including Dattatreya Hosabale and Krishna Gopal are likely to attend this meeting, which would also see BJP chief Amit Shah discussing organisation-related issues with them.
