New DelhiBJP National President JP Nadda will hold a meeting with all the office bearers and public representatives of the party on a two-day visit to Uttarakhand. There are assembly elections in Uttarakhand early next year and election strategy will be discussed in these meetings. Before these meetings, the National President of BJP will go to Haridwar on August 20 and take the blessings of saints and saints there. On August 21, Nadda will hold a meeting with the ex-servicemen of the state in Dehradun and take suggestions from them regarding the elections and appeal for their support. This meeting with the ex-servicemen assumes significance as the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has declared a former Army officer as its CM candidate in the state. Aam Aadmi Party will contest elections in Uttarakhand for the first time. However, he has made a big bet by making the former army officer the face. There is a significant number of retired soldiers in Uttarakhand. A BJP leader said that the BJP will tell the ex-servicemen that under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the forces have got more strength. The state unit of the party has planned 11 meetings of Nadda. BJP President Nadda will hold a meeting with the block chiefs. One meeting will be held with Nagar Panchayat chiefs, with Mayors, with party office bearers, with party general secretaries, with MLAs, with MPs, with cabinet ministers and also with chief ministers and former chief ministers. BJP Uttarakhand President Madan Kaushik said that all the leaders of the party have been included in these meetings. Everyone will be given many tasks before the election. This meeting is being done only on the preparations for the elections. Suggestions will be taken from block chiefs to chief ministers and former chief ministers. Apart from this, there will also be a meeting of the core committee, he said. This election is important for BJP as it has to fight the battle of changing the trend so far. Till now, power has been changing in every election in Uttarakhand and BJP has to find its cut. BJP has changed CM twice in the state in five years. There is also factionalism within the party. There is also a question whether BJP will enter the election field by making the current CM the chief ministerial candidate in the state or will it talk about joint leadership. This is also important because there are many CM candidates in Uttarakhand BJP and some of them are former Congressmen.
