“This is a very important state executive committee meeting being held just before the assembly elections during which the party would give message to its 76 lakh workers in the state,said the Bihar’s BJP chief, who is a Lok Sabha MP from Paschim Champaran constituency in the state. The meeting will plan strategy for the assembly polls besides expanding party’s organisation and ensuring better coordination with its allies i.e.JD(U) and LJP, said party sources.

The executive committee of the state was formed on 20th March, but it could not hold any meeting till date due to coronavirus outbreak induced lockdown enforced in Bihar on 22nd  March  and following nationwide shutdowns, they said. In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, the meeting would be organised through virtual mode, said Jaiswal.

“The BJP will be probably the first party in the country which is organising such an important meeting through virtual medium,” said Jaiswal, by adding party leaders would be connected to the meeting via their mobile phones or laptops from their respective places. The party’s decision to hold the meet digitally comes in the view of its over two dozen leaders and workers are  testing positive at the state headquarters in July in course of conducting regional meetings as part of election preparations.
